I am not sure where I have been for the last 2 months…
I have sewn, but not as much as usual. Since Thanksgiving we have visited family, celebrated a birthday, and generally enjoyed the season. During a long weekend off from work, I have managed to reorganize my sewing room and finish the center of my Night Star quilt. The center block, a Lone Star, is constructed using diamonds and triangles. I like it. The way the pattern uses all different colors and organizes them in color wheel order is very striking.
The important thing to remember during construction is to assemble the small triangles to the diamonds first, then add the larger triangles. If you don’t do this, placement is much trickier. I’m thankful that the Craftsy class mentioned this.
My end of year resolution is to assemble the quilt top. Can I finish before he bell tolls?
