My Blue Heaven

Well, Dog Days is ready to be assembled, and I started that process this afternoon.

I didn't have enough going on, what with finishing the Indigo and Caramel Baskets (now a flimsy, in the queue for quilting), Bill's Baskets on hold waiting for additional brown for a wide border, another project (as yet unmentioned and unphotographed) in flimsy stage and also in the queue, and a temporary loss of interest in my current Leader-Ender project, more about which someday when it is back in favor.  So I needed a new Leader-Ender project and thought about this terrific Asterisk that I'd seen a few weeks back on Selvage Blog.  I picked up a stack of nice batiks that all look mighty fine together and cut a few starter squares and cut some long strips.  This first block strikes me as gorgeous, if I do say so myself. 

But you know what tends to happen with me, especially in the summer, don't you?  That's right.  My Leader-Ender projects get noisy and demand to be made real projects instead of Leader-Enders.  I'm hoping this one will not get insistent that way. 

With a potential name of "My Blue Heaven," you'd think it would be well-behaved, wouldn't you?

What an easy block! Yours looks great! I have some left over black and white fabrics that would be great with some brights, also left overs. Thanks for the inspiration and the link.

Cute block, reminds me of a little package all wrapped and tied with ribbon ;>)! Yep summertime plays those tricks with me too, start it, get tired of it, and push it aside with the hopes of a return in the Fall! Enjoy your week!

Well behaved? Not on your life. It looks to me like a block that will demand friends.
