Bag #5: This is more like it. Dark and calm.
Bag #6: This is the last of the orange and red. From here on in its all blue.
Bag #7: Its hard to believe I’m already starting the border. Not loving it so far.
Bag #8: More borders. The original pattern had contrasting fabric for the spikes but I wanted to tone it down. In this case the star will be the focal point; the spikes will be far more subtle.
Bag #9: I was glad there were only 8 of these to make. It was a little bit of a monster for paper piecing, but I’m starting to love these spikes. Isn’t it funny how you like some fabrics grow on you work and others don’t? As I was stitching, the song ‘Moody Manitoba Morning’ came to mind.
Bag #10: No real work with Bag #10. These are simply background pieces that will be used in the final assembly.
That’s it! This week the task will be to sew the sections together and remove the paper.
