499th post...wow. Look for a giveaway on Post 500!
I've got my groove back for machine quilting, so there won't be any crazy piecing marathons this weekend. This needs binding and a label, and it will be shipped off for a raffle. All funds are for a digital mammography machine at the hospital where I used to live in BC. They really need it!
This was a stack of 25 homespuns and the quilt blocks are 12" finished. Click on the picture below and you will see my registration dots. I use the blue Mark B Gone. 4 dots and the corners all lined up with ruler work to make the star, then I filled it in with the back and forth S's
5 x 5 = 25, so it worked out perfectly. 60 x 60 without borders. A nice lap sized quilt.
A picture of the corner and side blocks to show how I continued the star points around the outside of this piece. I used a circle template for the center of the stars. LOVE doing this type of work.
Enjoy your weekend and I hope you all get some sew time. Nothing like a football game for some hand applique or quilting.
