Ever since I first looked through Quilter’s Academy Volume 4 (see my original post about it here), I’ve been interested in the Nine Patch Star.
Last night I pulled out some fabric and made the diamonds for one. The book’s directions were excellent, and I was pleased with how well it went together. My diamonds are a bit smaller than they should be though, so now I need to go back and figure out if I’m sewing too big a seam allowance, or not pressing correctly. If I can get that straight, these mesmerizing stars will be going into a new pattern.
For as much as I’ve been quilting the past week, one photo seems a little paltry for a blog post. But in the next couple weeks, I’ll be sharing a couple of new patterns, a book review with a baby quilt sample, and a new kaleidescope project I’m starting, so bear with me! What’s on your list for this weekend?
