This is my second go round with this bag of fabric. It's now Great Grandpa's shirts that are going to be used to create a baby quilt.
When making this type of quilt, I focus on the blocks and color choices first. I figure I will figure out how it all will work after I get the majority of the blocks pieced.
I put the finished blocks up on the wall, assess the open spaces
Once I get this far, I just have to make the last few blocks in the correct sizes/colors to fill in the holes.
The dark lines are my road map to piecing the top. I work in sections, and then work the sections together.
Can you spot the filler strips? Faster than making a third small star block, plus it adds interest.
The small star block is inset by using half seams.
Now I have to get busy on the next project.
