Rose Star Week: Day 3
I wanted to play with some other fabrics and show my students what it looks like with each 3-patch unit using 3 different fabrics. I still have quite a few of these fabrics left (cut into kites) and I'm trying to figure out a good design. I like trolling Pinterest for ideas; how about you? (I used my own kite template) This uses the 3-patch unit as found in the Rose Star quilt. Kite units using 3 fabrics Here are the 3 fabrics I used in the block above. Yes, same Rose Star patches! Sets of kites for my block Then I decided to split the center kites. What do you think? My template has seam allowances in the center so you can do this. To make it easy, I seamed two fabrics together and then aligned the template vertically (not shown that way here) and then cut. You have to cut one and then a mirror image of it. Can you see that? I also took the kite shape and pieced it. Inspired by a vintage block, here is what I did: Pieced kites Sewn into a hexagon center: And then I added a border.
