Improv Stars...

I am playing around with a stitch and flip

improv technique... 

Improv Stars

This is what my work table looks like today...

I pawed through my scrap bin and 

pulled out a few jewel tone scraps

and sorted them by color...

I also found this...
I placed strings under white cotton
and rubbed over the top with thickened dye.

I cut it into 2 1/5 inch strips,
then cut it into 2 1/5 inch squares
and 2 1/5 x 4 1/5 rectangles

Then I stitched triangle shapes

to the corners...

The 4 squares go in the center,
the rectangles create the star points...

Here's one in progress...

white background pieces on flannel board

Big triangles stitched to rectangles...

smaller triangles stitched to squares in center...

Improv Stars......FUN !
