Project

Ohio Star at Home

What are you most proud of? My points are still not consistently perfect, but they are getting much better. I like how the color selection turned out especially since it was from existing fabric. And my free hand machine quilting stitches is getting more uniform. Yes - practice, practice, practice. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Unless you want to practice points without paper piecing, use paper to make things easier and to make points that are more uniformly perfect. Just have fun with it. Remember you can make it any size you want just be adding blocks.

Lovely quilt. I have just started a half triangle square scrap quilt.
EllenMiller answered:
Yes, this one is also pulled from pieces in my stash... It's amazing how much you can do with leftovers ;-)
