Hopefully by now technology has been playing nicely (for a change) and the January Doodles are up on our doodles page. We thought we would introduce a new element to our Scrappy Sunday posts by adding in a scrappy version of the monthly doodle.
This month’s doodle is based on eight-pointed stars and the two blocks turned into a quilt might look like this –
But if we change those controlled blues to lots of blues and put them into a quilt then we could get something like this
Not very different but (possibly) more interesting.
Or we could go mad and use up lots of scraps from our scrap sacks and we might end up with something like this.
A bit riotous? But using the same background fabric tames them a bit. Or you can try the third way . . . a more controlled palette than the multi-coloured one but add a little more colour into the blues.
You can download a doodle to colour here. And if you fancy making the quilt – or just a couple of 12 inch blocks – then you can download the templates for the Le Moyne Star here and the Four Stars block here.
