Star Flower Quilt
« on: Dec 15, 2015, 10:58:38 AM »
Thank heaven Marley has volunteered to help me get going on this one again.  I need the help. 

I believe that I'm on block 7 or 8.  I've cut all the pieces and pinned them together.  I just don't remember how they go.  Then the sashing has me baffled. 

We wll work on it the 9th of January.

Thank you.  I've finally figured out a possible quilt pattern for it.  Now it is up to Marilyn as to weather she uses it or not.  I've got my fingers crossed that people will want to work on it so it gets done faster.

well I did get some help which is great.  But there were more members there than normal and someone had donated a bunch of fabric so most were sorting and taking up any of the tables I set up for my project.  I never did get my sewing machine set up.  We did get all the half square triangles sewn and I finished cutting them up last night.  Today I got them all ironed and now I'm headed off to square them up.

I'm still working on squaring up the pieces.  But I've started putting the rows together as well.  Progress is being made.

I have 4 of row one done.  I have the pieces squared up for row two.  It's not the swiftest progress that's ever been made but I'm hoping slow and steady gets the job done even if i don't win any races.

And this morning I managed to get all of row one done for the six blocks remaining, all of row two pieces squared and 3 sewn, and all of row 3 squared.  I do like progress.

Thanks tina.

Today I finished up row two and started on row three.  I got the first one wrong and had to frog it, but it is right now.

well it will be awhile  before there are pictures.  I got rows 3 and 4 pinned.  Today I hope to get them sewn.  I bought one of the small irons for doing the seams I hope it helps.  That is a place where I really bog down.

The small iron really doesn't help.  20 dollars down the drain. 

I got all the blocks done now I just have to start on the pieced sashing.

I think I'll name this quilt the stop and go quilt.  It's just hard to keep to an even pace.  Weird huh?

There are a lot of projects that work best that way, Tammy. Not just quilts.

Well I'm still cutting pieces.  I got the 38 12 1/2 inch pieces cut and now I'm cutting the 76 12 1/2 pieces.  I have no idea how many white on whites I have to cut.  a bunch and then there are their borders which will be about 4 times the number of white on white.  Scary, now I know why most people don't do pieced borders.  Learn something new everyday.

didn't like the corner pieces so had to go back to the store.  Now I have more to cut.  And putting it all together is like a jig saw puzzle,...who knew.

Sounds complicated. But think of the good it's doing for your mind. That's a good thing.

120 pieces just for the corner sashing.  No wonder it is taking forever.  And of course the fabric I found with the correct about of white/black ratio is a retro pattern while everything else is either organic or geometric.  But at this point and port in a storm.
