Deb H. wants to do a quilt for her grandson. I was sure I had dies that would cut out an easy wonky star. Made myself a few test blocks to make sure I had interlocking pattern understood. Cut out 6 sets of stars before I realized I wasn't laying the print good side down. SEW, so I set 5 stars together rotating the wrong way. I had to keep looking at my pattern from the back side to figure out how to piece the block--lol
Now that I have the center completed, it is growing on me. I have cut out enough stars correctly to make another full size quilt in the future.
|Kinda a strange way to set the stars but once you figure it out, very easy.|
|Corner pieces, easy to do|
|Center 5 stars- starting to like it, now to make it larger.|
|I had just enough of the brown w/circles to do a border around the center.|
|Triangles on the chisel die for the next border will bring this close to 60 x 60". I like sq. quilts for maybe a couple of more borders and this will be ready for a bed!|
