Tent Flap Star Quilt Top and Outtakes

>> Sunday, February 12, 2012

This is a UFO from last February. The block is named 'tent flaps' and was designed by Pat Sloan.

I pulled the blocks out this past week and decided I wanted at least the top made before my birthday at the end of this month.Here's a photo of the blocks arranged how I am putting them together - into a star. {You can really see my long entrance way window rectangles in this light}

 I had played with my block arrangement and taken some photos to keep track of the options.
This is a really busy looking group of pinwheels. Outtake 1.

Outtake 2. I liked the focus on the print, but the setting doesn't have enough focus for a wallhanging. It would be a fun quilt top though.

Outtake 3. I don't have enough blocks or fabric to keep this pattern going. You'll see some of this option did make it into my final product.

I call this one a Modern Outtake. I like this setting, but it's not the one I chose. And those long strips of yellow squares are no longer available - used up in another project I guess!

I'm really happy with how it's turned out so far. The borders were a bit tricky and I wrestled a bit with lining up the corner squares, but I did it!
I don't have any backing fabric selected for this one so it will get added to the small pile of finished tops.
I do know that I'd like to use orange or a fun stripe I have as the binding!

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

I like your modern outtake best, but understand you have to work with the fabric you have. Your final layout is nice too!
