After feeling incredibly daunted by this project - all those little triangles, all those little squares, all those tricky joins, I am now feeling pretty pleased with myself - my first ever blocks. I hope they are ok for you Jennifer. It was lots of fun and I am tempted to continue making more and more. Obviously a sign that I had better gets stuck into a project of my own.
I cut the first one (Star within a Star) out with Chris one evening and I
can see why patchwork can be a sociable hobby. The bottom star in the photo below is the
I confess to unpicking the first attempt at Star within a Star to try and fix some truncations of the little black triangles and misalignment of the red corners. It is still not perfect and I have now a sincere respect for those that can connect the various shapes perfectly at neat junctions.
For the next block I tried to choose a block where I could use all of the fabrics you sent me Jennifer and so I chose the Morning Star (below). Practice really does make progress as there was no ripping this time and I think it has turned out fairly reasonably.
Thanks heaps for letting me join in all your fun everyone. I'm looking forward to the next one now.
