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
Q&A with Darns
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!
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!
Beautiful blocks, colors & fabrics chosen are terrific. Great points. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks, Pamilia! Maybe I won't mess with the Ohio star after all.
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.
Thanks a lot! The center of the Ohio star is the fabric that inspired the color choices.
how cool I like the natrual colors in a quilt.
Thank you, martha! This quilt will be given to a friend of mine (friends for 45+ years).

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!
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?
