My gosh, how did you all do such a great job on cowboy's star? I need HELP! I've done it twice, I'm not sure how it goes together. It doesn't look like the pieces match. Anyone have any tips? I've finished country lanes and will post later. Gotta go.
Owo Beautiful blocks. Everyone did a great work.
I have done only the easy one for this week and I am racking my mind with the Cowboy Star...still trying.
Yours are awesome. How did all of you make it? Any hint is welcome!
So, here is Country Lanes:
Anael ... Fresh and Spring like!!!MiraB ... Perfect fit from your fabrics to give that star a western look! :)JanRN ... ha! GMTA we broke rank to re-order those lanes and put some bling on that star!! Good thought on Honchey's choice and the need for a FART!!! :) The first one to use stars in the star! :)JanRN and MiraB ... guess we're all thinking red and blue for cowboys? :)GGal ... Yes, sometimes those design walls get crowded!! Even with one the size of mine (7-1/2x10ft) , it is never big enough!! Right now I have my FWS all up there and wish it was another foot or two taller. Also have my 4PP ... next on the UFO list when I get the FWS off to the LQS. Oh no! at the thought of taxes ... ggrrrrrr!!! :)Termi ... did you PP? I only had one problem ... and that was when I put the right piece on but the wrong edge used. rrrrrrrrip! I made the star points first, joining the 4 pieces together. Then to each star point, added the outer most background piece to each side (that's where I joined the wrong side of one to the star). Then added one of the 5-sided pieces to each of the star points. So now you have 4 combined sections. Then joined 2 of each together. Then joined those last 2 to make one. Clear as mud in the Country Lane?? :) I kept them all laid out together as I went, to make sure I had everything in order. The mini-layout pictures have been really helpful.ArteEC ... OMG that's a wonderful representation. FCing is bang on. Then some gravelled roads and some wheat (or perhaps dried grass?) in the other blocks. Lovely!
Sorry folks that the above post is so jumbled!!!!!
I've re-edited it three times now, trying to get the paragraph spacings to stick ... and no can do! :)
BTW ... there's more discussion in the Discussion Page about PPing these blocks!
QUILTE...I rearranged my Country Lanes too......what is it with this need to have order????LOL! I first did it their way, but decided it would drive me nuts so I redid it my way.....much happier....:)
As you will see, I altered my Country Lanes, too. I need the order like QuiltE....:)
WendiQ ... wowzers on that star! Great fabric choices and pointy-points!
There must be something about all us PC'ers that we need order!! :)
Thanks QuiltE......that fabric that shows "purple" is really blue.....have no idea why the color showed up weird.....no matter, it's OK in person and that's what counts......
Aneal - Your colors are vibrant. I just love those blocks!
Miribelle - Colors are perfect & I see those roses again!
Jan - Your colors for Country Lanes are so soft. I love those heavenlys in your Cowboy's Star!
Art - Your interpretation of this block is perfect. Great FC!
Windi - These 2 blocks are so different from each other. Your layout of country lanes is neat! Blue is my favorite color. Those dots go perfect w/ the purple & yellow!
Great blocks all!
I agree!!! Is it the perfectionist in us? Well, me anyway! :) I'll do mine at my retreat!
