So I instantly grabbed some solid grey for the background and started cutting squares!! I just knew I couldn't wait on this and that if I cut the squares, it would start happening!!! I cut some squares from old fabric stuffed in a drawer to use as a foundation for my selvage squares. And it was so awesome to have this start :)
And speaking of a start . . . I had planned to wait for the String-Along to start before I started piecing any of my strings, but then I was just so excited to finally be starting this, I couldn't wait!!! So I started Stringing-Along ;) Before I knew it, I had two of the star centers done.
And then I figured, I might as well test how making HST's with strings would work. Just in case you are wondering, they worked great!!!
And that meant I had enough done to make one of the half stars in the design. Isn't it just so fun!!! I don't know if I have enough selvages to do the whole quilt, but I for sure have enough to participate in the String-Along and make a serious dent in this project. Mostly, I am just so excited to have this extra motivation to get started on this project!!! Thanks Moda!!!
And on a side note, I am embarrassed to say, that when I first introduced this idea (2 years ago) , I offered to do a A Basic Sewing with Selvages Tutorials followed by a Selvage Star tutorial, and there was interest in that. And then I never made the project so as follows, I never made the tutorials. Would you still like to have some tutorials on these Selvages and Stars??
