Neon Challenge

When I first got this neon fabric, for the Michael Miller Neon Challenge, I wasn't in love with the fabric. Honestly, I didn't like it at all. For starters, the fabric is literally saturated with color, so much so that it is VERY stiff! But after washing it (it's still stiff), it started to grow on me. 

For Bee PDX, I had started working on my first paper pieced star block. I was instantly hooked! I have been seeing more and more paper pieced stars pop up on blogs and pinterest, now I know why! They are so fun and once you learn the technique the possibilities are endless. Once I finished Ale's block, I didn't want to stop. So I ran out to Powell's and picked up this book that many people recommended. 


This block is the Alabama Star, I simplified it a bit, I found it made a bigger impact with less fabrics. Couldn't you just imagine a whole quilt of these?

    Neon signs are like looking at the future through the eyes of the past. They're incredible, often custom cultural artifacts all around us. And for this week's Shooting Challenge, photography an incredible neon sign.
