Okay, so this is actually a star (almost) but it soon joined some stripes.
When I looked at this image I remembered Love's post about sewing blocks around the wrong way and smiled. You'll be relieved to know that I put this block together the right way around on this occasion.
Not so the two halves of this project. Oops.
After some unpicking and a good chuckle at myself (well, Love's post should have made me more cautious), I fixed the error and got started on the quilting.
Haven't had a chance to sit and sew in a block (ha-ha! I made a pun) so I've been sneaking in a row here and there.
It's good to work on a smaller project for a change as I need a short break from all the big projects. I see now why Ruth likes making all those tables mats and doll's quilts. She's a smart cookie that one.
Hey Love, did you notice the patriotic element in this project. No? Oh well, once it has been gifted and I can reveal the whole thing it'll make more sense.
(There I go again with the half-reveals. It's becoming a habit).
At least I have fully exhausted those star prints - well, nearly. There were some Christmas coloured ones that I have kept aside.
Hope you get some stitching time in this weekend.
