Last Friday, I was whining about all the Y seams in these Lemoyne Star blocks. In my post I had struggled to put one block together.
With a bit of encouragement, some studying of different techniques on "Y" seams, re-reading my pattern, I was all set to tackle the job.
So, this week, I'm pleased to say that I have all 16 blocks done. And I'm glad they are done. Again, the hardest part was just starting.
I'm quite pleased with how the points meet on the centers of the stars. I never ripped out one seam. Pinning and managing that center seam is the key. The rest of the quilt will be easy to put together, and I'll do that back in Freddy Beach, where I can stretch out in my own sewing room.
I've put away my sewing projects and today we are heading to Florida for a week to do some touristy stuff and to attend a quilt show. I'll be off-line for a bit, but when I come back in a week, I'll be sure to show you my picks at the quilt show and tell you about the big quilt shop that I'm going to visit. Stay tuned!
Happy Friday to my very best Friday Girlfriends!!
