Just a quick post so I can link up to Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street Reveal! I finished it up last night, and I really love it! I still have to put on borders.....they will be in the reds and browns. Haven't decided what yet, but that will come.
I did mine in completely different colors than what Bonnie was doing. I just didn't have much of her colors, but I had a ton of these, and I used a fabric I love for the inspiration of the palette, so I am very happy with the mix of colors. My pinks were fairly light, lighter than some of the beiges I used, so the triple arrows pointing out don't really come off like that. And that's ok......cuz I like the focus of the star patches more anyway. The centers of the crosses were supposed to be pink, but I really wanted to bring in more red, so I changed it!
I also didn't make it square......cuz it would have been way too big for our bed......so I made it a 3x4 instead of 4x4. Now, when the borders go on, it will fit my bed perfectly! Yippee! And I have a ton of pieces left over, that can just go into my borders, or back in the bins! It's all good!
I just can NEVER do a pattern as it calls for! Just a thing with me! I don't know why!
AND, I have two of the blue/beige 4-patches turned wrong! (You can see one of them in the pic.) Oh well! I don't even care! I'm chalking that up to extra fun! lol
