Last week at my quilt guild we had a sew in to make a quilt similar to this one. I got busy sewing and forgot to take a picture of the example we had. In that one each star was outlined by an accent fabric.
In preparing for the class I failed to notice that the accent color strips were cut a 1/2″ smaller than the rest of the strips. I thought I would be okay. So I just started making blocks. I got this far and realized I was not liking the effect. Rather than reverse sew I’ll put them on the back of the quilt.
Instead I just started over. I’m much happier with these blocks. Plus I believe this adjustment will make the quilt easier to quilt, since the pieces on the end are bigger and not adding to the bulk were blocks come together.
I hope you’ve had more success than me this week moving things forward. Link up and let us see your progress.
