This post could also be titled "Five Star Review" for Sewtopia and their 6 month Color Collective. For six months you will receive a bundle of solids along with a pattern by Tara Faughnan. The one I'm sharing today is from the first season. It was the last pattern and I wanted to hand piece these stars.
I made about 65 stars and I pulled fabric from previous months to give me a larger variety. Here I am contemplating putting a large hexagon between the stars, but the quilt seems to be so large.
I went with using a diamond between each star. The next part was choosing a color for the setting diamond.
Oh, the sweet satisfaction of my star centers!
Here are the untouched bundles of the selections that Tara curated for Season 1 and 2. Notice all the berries, limes, aquas and purples? Yup, she pushed me over the edge of my color box. I have worked with combinations I would never have chosen, and making decisions based on a selection of colors chosen by someone else is quite freeing. The patterns are definitely aligned with working with solids and you have to up your game as every seam shows.
