My Creative Space

I was perhaps artificially assured of my abilities after the giraffe success and wanted to make a star pattern quilt - with no real skill, no pattern, not the best fabric choice (stretch denim - hmm perhaps not) this is what I ended up with. I am still hopeful, but this one not a success at all, points are messy and it is really out of shape. Not all smooth sailing, and that is ok. The Mum this time just wants something plain so I am thinking I will just revert to my original square idea for now.
More creative spaces at Kirsty's house - did you know she repainted, no longer the house of brown now the house of red - Fiery.
Thank you too for your great suggestions for Caleb's quilt. He finds the idea of asking if he likes a fabric a bit overwhelming, he usually just says yes, but I think we have found a theme at least. So Caleb's faves in order - animals, pirates, dinosaurs and monsters. Animals it is and just in time for the Amitie sale tomorrow darn it!

I think it look really good :) a star quilt would look really nice, even if the stars are just placed at random point in the quilt

What about a star using diamonds? Not sure if this is possible but thought I'd throw the suggestion in! I think that fact you jumped in and had a go means that your claim of "no real skill" is incorrect!

Maybe you could applique a couple of stars on after the face or do your quilting in star shapes?

I can't see the wonk by the way.
