New Temptation

I've caught the bug that's going around. It's a fun bug if you want to be tempted.  I couldn't stand the cuteness and I had to join the fun! 
Karen from Faeries and Fibres (look on my blog list to find her link) started a sew along. If you like English paper piecing and embroidery, rush over there and get started! 
I was so excited that I made three centers! Friday Karen will share part two with us. I CAN'T WAIT!
This one is my favorite. Even the background is my favorite. Yes I know my corners don't match up. This was the edge near the binding and I had a limited amount of fabric to work with. I'm hoping that there will be something in the corners or I'll just have to add a couples of buttons, or something. 
This was the star fabric. 
So far my only problem has been finding centers for my stars. I just don't seem to have the amazing fabrics in my stash that make up the hexie centers. 
But I'm sure I can doll up a plain center. 

This was my first star. Not sure if this center will stay. 
The fabric that made up the star.  
My third star. Somewhat interesting. Maybe my background was a tad to big. 
Anyway, even if these don't all get made up, they could be starts for something else. 
So are you going to go over there and look around and start something fun and new? Or maybe I'll tempt you with tomorrow's new BOM I started. 
Stay tuned!

Take care, Brandie

They look fantastic! Isn't it amazing to see the finished star and then the piece of fabric that it came from, you would never pick it if you didn't see them together.

Wow, these are great, the second star is my fav. They are all so different. You picked some great fabrics for fussy cutting. It would be fun to see the after pic with the holes :0)

It looks like you are having tons of fun with those stars - so amazing how the fabric is transformed when it is fussy cut. Beautiful work.
