Quilting Gail is back with a 2nd edition of Stay At Home Round Robin. I joined Gail in 2020 and it was so much fun I came back for more!
This round is Wonky Stars from Pieceful Thoughts. Now, those who know me well know I don’t do things that are not symmetrical, so you won’t be surprised to see I had a hard time with this one.
Another dilemma was yardage. I started with limited amounts of 3 different black prints. Wonky Stars would use up yardage making paper foundation blocks. So, I went a different direction. Like I haven’t already done that with my 1/2 rounds. So here’s my actual Star.
Well, here’s the story. I am trying to keep my size to a minimum. That’s why I went 1/2 rounds in place of full rounds. Knowing there were 3 more rows to come, I was worried about size. So what to do? Well, you are going to have to wait until the 7th round to find out!
Confession Time: Last week I was all Missy Math, this week, I am Fannie Fail. Remember I had little yardage? Well, I didn’t correctly count how many QSTs I needed!! Grrr. I knew I needed 32 components to fit into 8 blocks. To me that meant 32 black and 32 green blocks needed to be cut. But, with QSTs you get 2 blocks with 2 original squares. I cut TWICE WHAT I NEEDED! So, I ran out of yardage and couldn’t finish the blocks.
Good news? I found it at a shop in internet land!!! Amazing since it’s a fabric from 2015! But diligence found it. Hallelujah! Well, at least that’s what I think is going to happen. I half fear I will get an email today saying there’s none left! Who knows what I will do if that happens.
