Continuing on with the Comfort and Joy quilt piecing, this weekend I made six star blocks (in two sizes--6-1/2" and 8-1/2").
The camera caught just a little sneak peak of this month's applique block for the quilt--can you see it there at the top right of the photo? It's also upside down, so it probably doesn't look like much, and I can't reveal it for a few more days. That's fine with me though--I'm just getting started on it!
Beside making stars, I completed a square in square block and quite a few flying geese--I think there are over 30 of those.
Because the geese are totally scrappy, I didn't use any of the no-waste, quick methods, but I DID save the corners I cut off, and I sewed them all together into little pinwheel blocks. The quilt uses a number of plain strips, and I think I'll replace some of those with the pinwheels, for a little added interest.
This means I'm done with all of the block piecing--now I "just" have to make all the applique blocks--AND I have to catch up on blocks one and two, since we're making block three this month.
I love this quilt! I'm glad Anne twisted my arm and forced me to join in. Who else is working on it? Want to play along with us?
