I'm looking at a busy week ahead with not too much time to sew or blog about sewing, so I thought I'd post the only other thing I have to show you--the star centers of the Star Light, Star Bright quilt along. This is the one where we get weekly tasks. Yes, it's the same quilt along where I had to make 512 half square triangles and get them all trimmed up--remember me whining about that last week? Well, now we start enjoying the payoff of having made all those HSTs. Here are my star blocks--please excuse the shiny bags that I photographed through, but I need to keep the rest of the "parts" for each block all together or I'd be lost!
And although having those HSTs already made helped with assembling these centers, making 16 of these blocks still took some time--I spent much of the weekend working on them.
On Wednesday we'll get the next step--which I think might be making the side sections of the blocks, but I'm not positive because I haven't looked back at the schedule to check. Truth to tell, though, I sort of cheated with the first block I made--I made all the sections to see how a block would look when it finally goes together. But I didn't get a photograph of that block laid out, so I can't share it with you, but I'm kind of excited to see how these turn out.
I was hesitant about using the black background to start with but it's turning out much like I imagined it would, at least so far! And I like it! It's really nice when things turn out the way you see them in your mind, isn't it? But I'm not all done yet, so stay tuned!
