{Post 1,514} Surprise Sewing Day

Above are my original blocks for the Maverick Stars.  I decided the outer frames were too big and cut those 4 down.

This AM I got out of bed and realized I was home alone.  Then my husband texted and asked if he had told me he was going to be out of state all day.  No.  So I sewed for the morning.  

My son got home from work about 11:30.  We did a few things together, then I sewed some more.

This is what I had finished when it was all said and done.  They are 9-1/2" square unfinished.  I am getting the hang of the wonkiness of it all.

Fun blocks! I am thinking of making some with scrappy red backgrounds and scrappy cream stars for a great niece that loves red, I think it will work?!

hello Joan. You have taight me an interesting lesson here, as I often make 1,2 or 3 blocks and think Hmm, no...but when you persevere and see a larger number of them together, they start to look "right".
I am no good at wonky, but I like the effect of all your wonky stars.

I think the smaller frames were a good call.
