What was your inspiration?
When I opened up the book and saw a quilt made from these blocks, I knew I'd found my next quilting project. I was looking for something that wouldn't be "boring" to sew, and that would use up lots of my smaller scraps of fabric.
What are you most proud of?
Some of the points are a tiny bit off, but most of time they line up nicely. I may go back and adjust the second block. Now that I've made myself a better template for cutting, the pieces should be more perfect, so lining them up won't be such a hassle.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be prepared to take your time! Cutting the pieces is a job in and of itself. Don't plan on this being a weekend project, as the points need to be lined up perfectly and then backstitched. There's no chain stitching here!
