I made some more crumb blocks this week. Decided to try the Star blocks again.
Jo's great instructions are HERE for stars & hearts. After reviewing the
instructions, samples, and looking at other quilters stars, I decided my problem
was contrast; or lack of contrast. My husband calls them “Hidden Stars”. First ones:
I was very please with how these stars finished. See the little corner fabric
between the star points. I had a strip from another project, made from 2 strips
(a 1½ ” & 2” sewn together). I cut the squares used for the star points from this
and ended up with the peeking fabric.
Made a few other blocks. The extras will probably end up on the back.
I am showing signs of addiction, (1)“Neglecting responsibilities”; my
family ended up with pancakes and sausages for dinner since I had no
time for grocery shopping. (2)”Lost control” and (3)"Built up a tolerance";
must make more crumb blocks then planned.
I have started to cut my sashing and plan to have a finished top Nov 16th. Will
post my link at Jo's Country Junction. Maybe I will have my addiction under
control. I need to start working on Christmas presents.
