I was about to leave that job so we thought it would be a nice idea to catch up once a month to make a star block. Sounds simple enough right.
We also decided we wanted to do them using English paper piecing instead so we would be able to chat.
It has taken a long time but our fabrics have been chosen, ordered, shipped and delivered. We managed to pick a day we were both free. We had a nice morning of sewing, chatting, eating scones and drinking tea.
Im using a Happy go lucky layer cake and Kayley is using little apples yardage.
Here is my first block
I have a few issues with the colour placement but I decided that its just one star there will be eleven more so it the grand scheme of things it really wont matter. This quilt is about fun, catching up with a friend and we both thing it will be totally amazing to have a quilt made by hand. No sewing machine at all. Im sure by the time we are finished we might wish otherwise but for now its quite fun.
