Quilt Block Remix - January the REVEAL

January 31, 2022

The REVEAL - Ohio Star Remix Block Challenge.  It was definitely a lot of fun trying various ways to 'remix' the Ohio Star block.  

First, I started with a plain simple Ohio Star Block, then added another, then another.  So it became a star within a star within a star.  But that didn't seem 'remixed' enough.  What could be done by thinking outside of the box (star) so to speak?  The answer was "Why not fracture it?"  Has it been done before? I'm not sure... I've never seen one.  Have you?  and NOW the reveal....... Oh but wait a minute !!!   First... I'd like to share a little bit of the 'insider' thoughts about my creation. 

The fabrics chosen in week 1 consisted of teals, gold & burgundy.  But as the weeks went by and the design started to become a reality, loads of color & fabric combinations started swirling around in my head.  What about patriotic colors...or fall colors ...or even Christmas & Halloween prints?  The ideas were flowing & the excitement increasing.

This is a short recap of the previous 3 weeks:

WELL.... Here it is!   Here's is the BIG REVEAL - my "Fractured" Ohio Star Block.   Both sets of photos are digital. First photo -- patriotic colors.  The second group illustrates the fabric choices from Week 1.


Which do you like better?   

Now the hard part starts, trying to figure out how to write the instructions to make the table runners that I created digitally.  Then cutting, & stitching to test them making certain my measurements are correct, etc. etc.
