Asterisk block

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The fabric choice, I think the choppy flower design goes well with the slashed asterix. Sorry I can't remember the name of the fabric only that I bought it in a little shop in South West Harbor on Mount Desert Island, Maine on my holiday in USA so this block will always remind of that fantastic place. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the video all the way through first. Don't panic if you think its not going to work and the lines don't look like they are going to match up - they will when its all done. Keep to a scant quarter of an inch seams.

Me Clothing asked:
What a lovely choice of fabrics, I totally agree with your advice, i panicked and made this twice to make sure it was right but after i cut them both i realised it was fine. I found the content of the video was very user friendly, i have just signed up for the vintage dress making course to try to use some of the 60 patterns i've been collecting but too afraid to try
lizzyb answered:
Yes sometimes its just too scarey to start especially when it means cutting beautiful fabric but no body else gets to enjoy it when its just a length in your cupboard. The craftsy courses I've followed make it look so easy although I haven't followed any dressmaking ones yet just quilting - Good Luck and let us see your finished creations.
