August BOM #2

Project Description

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I think my Ohio Star block is kind of wimpy - might have to do some dec stitches or rethink the fabrics.

What you will need

  • cotton fabrics

Q&A with Darns

SandiePink asked:
Very, VERY nice! and the colors are so very 'pleasing' together; so peaceful, and they just draw you in! and I love your fabric texture also!
Darns answered:
Thank you, Sandie! These fabrics had been sitting around my place for years waiting for inspiration until this BOM came along. Fortunately my friend who will get this quilt loves the colors also. I have been showing her the blocks each time I see her - she's starting to get a little impatient at this point!
Pamillia asked:
Beautiful blocks, colors & fabrics chosen are terrific. Great points. Thank you for sharing.
Darns answered:
Thanks, Pamilia! Maybe I won't mess with the Ohio star after all.
leah7 asked:
Beautiful blocks. I think your Ohio star is great the way it is. These blocks are very soothing to look at. I love the fabrics.
Darns answered:
Thanks a lot! The center of the Ohio star is the fabric that inspired the color choices.
marthaquilter asked:
how cool I like the natrual colors in a quilt.
Darns answered:
Thank you, martha! This quilt will be given to a friend of mine (friends for 45+ years).
Pam NZ asked:
Step away from Ohio star Darns! I love the autumn colours... lovely and warm which is not how I'm feeling right now ;-) Hey don't forget that when it's joined with the rest of it's family and quilted it will come out of it's shell... so mitts off!
Darns answered:
OK, OK, I'll leave it alone. Warm & humid is what it is here today. Thunderstorm went through a little while ago & upped the muggy feeling. How cold do your winters get?
