work in progress...lucky stars BOM

this is my lucky stars BOM july block...really enjoying this way of working...i have never done a BOM before...something to look forward to each month...


because i always seem to be looking for new things to start...i took a old chair that is very distressed from a few years outside...i spray painted it a strange gold orange colour...it is a flat paint and did not cover all the evils this chair has...distressed and recycled furniture is in style right now...so i made another july lucky star to use as a cushion cover...i made a pattern of the chair seat by drawing around it...using a piece of memory foam...will keep you posted....
this time i did not add the grey around the star shape...i would like it more if the inner fabrics had some texture to them...but with each block i learn something...this time i did use dark, medium and light...
this is my on going work in progress...my beautiful daughter Elizabeth and her daughter Miss O 
those smiles just warm my heart...

Love those stars. What a great little pond to have when the heat and humidity get here.

Great looking blocks...your family is lovely and water is so relaxing. We have a large pond...and I love watching the goldfish

I like that inner part of the block, those close-valued reds and purple seem mysterious somehow. You could add texture with your quilting lines. Maybe a contrasting colour would work.
