I got a little delayed with my Star Struck quilt because the seam ripper and I had to get reacquainted. I had some machine time planned though and I didn’t want to waste it so I grabbed a different project….Blue Skies.
Blue Skies can be found in Bonnie Hunter’s book String Fling. I had all the triangles sewn and I had the string pieces done. I needed to assemble blocks.
I got going and then panicked….WHAT THEY DON”T MATCH UP!!
Read the directions Jo!! The string blocks are supposed to be 6 1/2″…not 7″.
I still had more machine time so rather than stop and trim the center piece down I set that aside. That’s an easy project to do it I get any nap time free time. Onto sewing the other side pieces…
Over the next two nap times, I got the center pieces trimmed down.
Then the next morning in my early morning sewing session, I sewed the first two sides onto the block…..I’m loving the look. What do you think?
Over the next day, at nap time I pressed these. Now they are ready to get the next sides on.
But, now I am in a dilemma….Do I go back and work on Star Struck or do I continue with Blue Skies? Oh, you know me…I’ll likely keep working on both. I’m not good with only one project.
You can find me here next week….UFO momentum is still happening and I want to keep it up.
