Project Description

What are you most proud of? My points! 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.

Q&A with knittrbug

NanaJeanFL asked:
Just love your work! Gorgeous fabrics, great composition, beautiful sewing. For "dusting off" you're doing wonderful. Are you using a particular line of fabrics, yardage, stash? Look forward to your whole quilt!
knittrbug answered:
Thank you so much Jean! Mostly it's my stash. I did make color choices from the onset, figuring these blocks would eventually be together in one quilt. So of course I HAD to go buy a few new ones to balance/fill in what I already had.
