InstructionsMake the seam allowances a very scant 1/4". I didn't trim anything off the first block and very very little on the second.
Type of item: Functional
Moda California Girl fat quarter bundle
What are you most proud of?
I made it through this one on this sweltering hot day. This one took me a few hours to do. (Maybe the heat is making me slow). Lots of cutting and sewing and ironing on this one.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take Amy's advice and choose fabrics that contrast. I choose the bright solid orange because out of all of the fabrics in the bundle it seemed to provide the strongest contrast. I like the way the double star turned out. Make sure of your measurements before you cut. I made an error but didn't realize it until I was ready to assemble. I had to redo about half of it.
