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?
