That star again



Well, here we have a lovely "winter" postcard from Joan (I really like this tree) and The Star Block in yet another colourway. This one is a nine inch treatment for Joy for the birthday swap (two August blocks done and it's not even the 1st yet - woohoo - but I will be away for substantial parts of August, so I am trying to get organised). She wanted bright batiks with a navy or midnight blue background - this photo was taken in full sun, very bright (for once!) so it's actually a wee bit bright than in person, but gives the general idea. I like it. It's bright, but funky. Hopefully, Joy will like it too. One more to go (and she wants something "summery" - in beach/southwest type colours - the colours I think I have a fairly good idea of, but no idea what I'll do for the block yet; probably not this star, though) and I can tick August off the list.

Love the block Kate. For the summer block how about turquoises, bright pinks, or sherbet colors and maybe ocean waves block??
