I finished the lap quilt that I was binding over the weekend – yay! – and now I’m working on this:
It’s a Mexican Star, a 12-inch foundation-pieced (free) block that I found here at DreamCastle Quilts. Scroll down the web page, it’s #18. The first block went together fast enough, but you can see the centre looks off because I had to take it apart and put it back together a few times. I could have read the instructions first, but where’s the fun in that?
I like the foundation piecing because it allows the centre stripe to be all one piece of fabric.
I’m thinking that I don’t have enough of this green, and I bought it some time ago so I doubt I’ll be able to find more of it. I should probably toss this in with all of my other practice squares and dig out a new green fabric (I may have a few just lying around…) to use.
What do you think? Should I place it square or on point? Right now I’m leaning towards on point. (Like my Design Wall? It’s also known as the bedroom curtains.)
Geeks are us! My partner bought this “Head magnifier with LED” for me last week since I’m getting to be as blind as a bat. It looks stupid and it’s not the most comfortable thing to wear, but it works great! As long as no one else sees me wearing it, who cares?
Now, forget that you ever saw this picture! Here’s Ginger on the comfy perch placed there exclusively for her enjoyment.
Until next time,
