I've recently added 8 more Selvage Stars to my collection. That brings my total of blocks to 21 and I would like 35.
My inspiration is a c1880 String Star quilt in the Pat L Nickols collection at Mingei International Museum.
I found out about Mingei International Museum from Sally (Objects of Design) and she was also a spark of inspiration when I saw her String Star blocks inspired by a different quilt at Mingei.
This is an old UFO I started back in December 2018. I made six more blocks in January 2019 and then six more in February 2019 and then set it aside until a few weeks ago when I decided this should be my new 20 Minute Challenge since I completed my last one. I promise myself I'll work on making these blocks for at least 20 minutes per day until I have my 35 blocks.
For foundations I've been using some very light weight pages from an old insurance semi annual report I knew would be good for something someday. Thank goodness we now receive these types of things electronically. My 20 minutes a day may include sewing selvages to the foundations OR trimming and tearing off papers (all trimmings of paper and fabric go into compost pile) in front of TV in the evening OR assembling blocks.
I've definitely found a renewed interest in this UFO and usually spend more than 20 minutes a day on it.
