Remember the scrappy star quilt by Jennie Doan that I liked? I have been working on cutting and sewing the star points. First I cut my own 10" squares from different prints and 10" squares from white Kona fabric. I also cut the 4 ½" white squares with my Accuquilt Go. It requires 80 of the smaller squares. My Go made quick work of that.
After I sewed each print square with a white 10" square, I had to cut them. I had cut almost all the squares before I realized I could see my stitches better from the print side than the white side.
Of course, I could really see it well on the one below. Can you tell why? Yep, that is sewn wrong side up. At least I only did it on one. Wish I had noticed before I cut it. Oh, well.
Here is my stack of star points...all 20 sets.
Now, for the process I do not like. I need to open and press each piece and then square to 4 ½". Time consuming, but does make for a more perfect HST.
While I sewed the 10" squares, I listened to an audiobook downloaded from my local public library. Sure made the time go quickly. Now, what is it about putting earphones in that makes husbands suddenly have to tell you something? Does this happen to you?
