Grandmother’s Flower Garden Star Quilt – Week 3

Only stars to show this week — I seem to alternate between stars and flowers. Hop over and see Steffi’s pretty star and 2 flowers, one of which is fussy cut.

Originally I was going to make all my flowers and stars with a yellow center. However, I really wanted to use some yellow print hexagons in sets of 12 cut by a long-ago quilter. Since these yellows are so close to the color of my centers, I’ve decided to make all the yellow flowers have orange centers. It looks a bit odd on this star, but I think it will be fine once the top is sewn together since the quilt is so scrappy anyway. Also, I’m going to use a fair amount of that vintage orange solid in the other stars and flowers which should make it blend in a little better.
