Project Quilting week 2

  It is week 2 of Project Quilting at Persimondreams.    Click here for   Project Quilting Flickr Group.
 Chasing Away the Winter Blues is 15" by 30".  It began with the wonky star block in the center.  I wanted to use what was in the pre-cut scrap bins,  rather than cut up more fabric.  That went fine.  I got stalled a little after that.  I thought I would do a string block to go between 2 star blocks originally.   Yet when I got the first one done, I realized I did not like it straight on and wanted it on point.  More thinking needed.

     I had strings of blue fabric laid out on the table and my natural inclination is to arrange them by value......really?  ;)     A natural progression emerged.  OK, I like it.
   Since the string/strips were different widths I had to play around with placement to get a semblance of size on each side as I created the blended braid effect.  The end result is just a little off kilter---wonky to match the star.   Then I practiced some endless feather quilting to finish it off.   Overall, a fun way to chase away the blues.
  A challenge and a finish....I like that.  Hope you will check out the others who are doing this by visiting the Flickr Group.
  Happy stitching.
