This one is really making my heart sing. I am planning to make 12 of these 15-inch blocks for a Christmas tree skirt. Once again I am using a Carol Doak pattern. (Block #240 with the top star omitted and #34 fro 300 PP blocks. The gift center is block #75).
Here are the two star fabrics. Can you believe that this fabric with gold fish and elephants would be used in a Christmas project? I thought it was just the fabric needed to give a shimmer of gold throughout the secondary star fabric.
Here is a close up of one block. See the elephant legs?
A project like this with golden highlights is exactly what I had in mind when I purchased this fabric months ago. I never shy away from fabric with unusual designs. I know that once I cut it up, it will not even resemble the original pattern.
All in all I am pleased as punch with this one.
