My friend Jaye is making quilts for a few of the people who survived the San Bruno gas explosion but lost everything in the fire. She asked for quilt blocks that were yellow stars on dark blue backgrounds.
I hand-drafted these (thanks to the degree angles on my Omnigrid ruler), and cut them out of fused yellow fabric. I just didn't feel like piecing for some reason.
I zig-zagged the edges just to be sure. I never trust fusible completely. Unless of course if it is for sticking something to the ironing board....forever!
I think I liked this one better, the two fabrics combined made me thinking of Van Gogh's Starry Night a little bit.
I can't wait to see how the quilts turn out, she's almost got one whole quilt top put together.
