I know you are all asleep right now, but I need you to wake up and look at this and tell me what you think.
I have good ideas occasionally, but I don't always know how to bring them home.
So tell me what you think.
I have these Asterisk blocks that need to get finished for May. And they need one more buddy in black. He will happen tomorrow, hopefully. That will give me 8 of the big guys.
I created them myself after several tries. I say several tries because I had to work out the problem with bulky seams meeting in the center. You will notice that none of the seams meet in the center now.
I worked that out.
And all the seams meet other places now. And that is better than when it started out. Believe me.
I was thinking that the Asterisks were plain and boring looking on white background, but that is all I had ever pictured them on. Then I noticed a black dot fat quarter and thought that might be a nice center block.
Which led me to think that I could use more of that to go around the outside but I didn't want to buy more fabric. So I looked around the shelves and found this.

And under that were these numbers.
I don't know if the scale of the numbers make them wrong for the Asterisks blocks.
I like the numbers. But I also like the quilt to be one that you say, what is your favorite color, red? Purple? Orange?
Maybe it is all too much and I should go back to all white.........
