BUT - I still enjoyed thumbing through to choose a block to make! I was on a mission to find a suitable block design that would help me accentuate one of the MANY Calico Prints I have accumulated over the years. I have SO many of them - but I rarely feel the pull towards projects that take advantage of BIG PRINT Fabrics. My resolution for 2013 was to "Use my Calico Stash".... and I really wanted to make things with them that really can't be done with any other fabric. Simply to go along the line of my mindset when I bought it..."Oh...I LOVE this....I have to have some!!".. Never with a purpose...just for the fabric. (sigh)
So this time - I had to do the opposite. Choose a pattern that would work with the fabric I wanted to use! Fun Challenge for myself!
I chose Block #55 from Volume 1 of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks. It's called Wishing Star by Bonnie Mitchell.
