|Feb 19th Star Light Star Bright Assignment - Building Block Centers|
Yes, I am one week behind but working hard to get caught up. They are looking more Scrumptious at ever new stage. So that makes it all the worthwhile.
The greatest difficulty making these stars was matching the seams. So I came up with a way that reduced the amount of ripping out and resewing. I have created a picture tutorial that will show you how I did this.
The last picture with 4 images should read:
"Reverse the block begin sewing at center and sew to the end."
Though it is a couple extra steps I believe it reduced the length of time to finish all 9 blocks.
Assignment for February 26th is building the block sides.
Sets for 2 blocks are completed and looking good on the design board.
It's getting exciting!!

This is a must read to understand what each of the blocks represent.
