I'm playing with solids this week and am loving it. It's been a few years, yes, years, since I've worked with my solids and I don't know why. They are great to work with.
I tried bordering the center star with all these scrappy wedges, but thought it was too heavy in the middle. Plus I made some blocks a very funky size. Now it's about making things work.
Another idea that failed. It needs more blocks along the top and I'm not prepared to make any more blocks. I could go on and on with these, they are addictive and fun, but I only want a small sample. So............
I've now decided to add onto the four medium sized blocks and make them the same size as the center block. I'm going to float the 4 smaller blocks with more background fabric, but make them off centered so they don't line up. Then the whole piece will be bordered with wedges. At least that's what is rolling around in my mind today.
Here I've used larger wedges to make a jewel toned table runner.
