I'm doing Christmas Stars. I have 6 blocks cuts already from one set of fabrics. I have another set of fabrics ready to cut the other 6 with. I'll post pics when I get them sewn.
Good to see you playing in this swap.
Question for everybody.......How do you feel about a fabric with a bit of metallic in it? I have some with large ice skates and snowflakes on it. The skate runners, laces and snowflakes are silver metallic. I'd like to use a 6 1/2" square in the center of 6 of my stars that would have a pair of the skates featured. If you would rather not have metallic, I certainly understand completely. I do want my blocks to fit in with everyone else's. I'm going to wait to cut those centers until everybody weighs in on it.
I have no problem with it. I think Carla’s cardinal fabric may have metallic also
Mine has some metallics also. I think a lot of Christmas fabric does.
Okay, if others are using it, I'll go ahead and cut those squares and start sewing tomorrow.
Connie is right, mine does have some too. It's fine by me
I didn't even think to ask. Lololol.
I am doing a split 9 patch, no 2 will be alike
Ok I guess I will do this one also. Can reduce my stash.
If there is a spot open I will take it.
Yay. A bakers dozen. Welcome aboard.
