I've not posted much on this new blog yet, mostly because the projects I have been working on are top secret for now. It is funny how excited I am about using up old worn blue jeans. IN an effort to be more productive I am employing the piece two quilts at a time method. I always use a leader and an ender scrap of fabric when chain-piecing. Why not make that useful? So now I am using up blue and white scraps with the denim squares-stitching a side of these blocks instead of just a little scrap to be thrown away. Eventually this will be a quilt that will go on the bench seat by the dining room window which is turning out to be Anya's favorite place to lay and wait for her family to come home.
And who doesn't love babies. Sneak peak at a project I started last week. I like the whimsy that the polka dot fabric will add. The quilt is made up of Ohio Star alternating with Double Irish Chain blocks
I'm thinking about calling it A Star is Born, or maybe Under the Stars or...What do you think?
I am putting together a little tutorial on making the quarter-triangle squares that make up part of this block. This technique makes quick work of them, and the points in the middle match perfectly too. I should have that up for you soon.
Please note: This BOM started June 2018-Blocks are released the first Monday of each month.
