Description

It's snowing ...

so and as pictures never show true colours - I'm using brown with pink dots, pink with brown dots, orange with pink dots pink with orange dots and the solid is a hmmm teal? muddy turquoise?

2013/01/17 well trying to avoid my paleography notes I sort of did another star ... and ran out of series to watch no more Arrow, or The Event or Continuun or Rome or Game of Thrones or Revolution or Falling Skies or Last Resort or Star Gate Atlantis ... life will get really boring without a dose of series in the evening ... and I could really use some distraction now ...

2013/01/23 it's been snowing a lot - so I decided to be sewing a lot ... Any idaeas what I should do with the stars now? Layout options?

2014/04/ well I was tired of having the blocks laying aroudn, so I just sewed them togther, now I just need to "straighten out" the edges

Charwirfs

Nicely done. I can never get my Y-seams to lay flat or have all the points so crisp. Great contrast with your colors. Now what? More Y-seams?

Strandkorbtraum

Charwirfs aye sure lots and lots of more Y-seams ... the center of the star is actually more of a problem than the Y-seams ...

True

WOW impressive!! These are awesome and y seams and points in the middle you have way more guts than I do!

Strandkorbtraum

True well I wanted to do the pattern, but it's out of a hand sewing pattern book, so well I cut everything and then really didn't want to draw the 1/4" seam allowance on all the pieces and figured there had to be a way to sew it with the machine.
Then it was just trial and error - and I'm getting better, adjusting the sequence of which parts are sewn when to what. And I really really like that pattern.

Mymble

Very cool- great sewing- is this for a quilt?

Strandkorbtraum

Mymble ehh yes - at least that's the masterplan - so far I'm thinking 4 stars wide ... maybe I should draw that somewhere .. see if reality can keep up with my thinking.

Mymble

Ha ha- let me know if that works- I could use some of that!

Mariam
