So I know I should be working on lesson plans, or laundry, or something productive. But I had a quilt in my mind and I wanted to play with the idea. I had been admiring Bonnie's Cathedral Star Quilt, but didn't really want to do any HST blocks. So I came up with an Irish Chain variation, and wanted to make a block to see how it would look. I was trying to make the star points in warm colors and the four patches in cool colors, hoping that it would make the star points pop out, but I'm not sure if that's the effect I'm getting. Anyway, it was fun to play.
