Long Time Gone [Week 6]

Six weeks in and still up to date!!! But I'm coming to the end of what I pre-cut so I'm going to have to schedule in a bit of a cutting party soon! This week's block is a bit of an odd one: the Plus a Star block. I like the plusses. And I have nothing against stars. But I struggled with the combination.

I actually spent a bit of time planning this block and even so, I'm not too pleased with how the star doesn't really stand out. I think in the grand scheme of the whole quilt, it will look absolutely fine and not be an issue. But today, critically appraising this one block all on it's own, it didn't work as well as I'd hoped.

Next up - eleventy billion mini churn dashes!

I think it's great! When someone is looking at the whole quilt, the star will be a pleasant surprise to find!
I love keeping up with all of your stitching. You do such beautiful pieces!
