Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Casual, Mod, Cute
What are you most proud of?
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Pay extra close attention to the scant 1/4" seams, especially on the Double Star - they really need to be less than 1/4". My Double Star block came out 1/8-1/4" shy of 12 1/2" square even though I was vigilant!! Somehow I hope that little bit off will disappear with sashing and quilting....we'll see!
Also BEFORE CUTTING check for alternative methods to make the flying geese units,
e.g.http://www.connectingthreads.com/tutorials/Flying_Geese-Make_em_fast-two_methods__D15.html OR http://www.patchpieces.com/files/flyinggeese.pdf
After cutting it's too late to change methods. I used Amy's method and saved the scraps for another project.
