star blocks from Making A Lather

Sometimes, just the way I set my pieces to be sewn can make it a bit more fun and challenging so that it doesn't get boring. I was really struggling with the star blocks for the pumpkin quilt.

star blocks autumn from Making A Lather

I have sewed these triangles 3 times, once without bobbin thread, once because the tension was wonky, and once the right way. practice makes perfect. I's a good thing there were not so many. I am trying to make star blocks for the pumpkin jubilee quilt that I started in the fall ( a little behind). Needless to say, they are on time out for awhile.



The border fabric I ordered has arrived for Christmas Snowflake.


And I like it. It looks like I what I saw in my head.
