Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Work in Progress Wednesday


I have 10 of the 15 large stars finished for Oh, My Stars.  I probably should have used the large size to do something more intricate (I will on the last 5), but I wanted to show some of the large-scale prints before they were cut into unrecognizable bits.

The directions are very good, and she is serious when she suggests using  a scant quarter inch for seams.  I wandered from that and ended up re-making two blocks.  I went with pressing the seams open, which is something I’ve never done in quilt piecing, but I thought it might help with accuracy when I get to the smaller blocks.  So far, so good.

Thanks to everyone who has left comments:  Pam, Jaye, landscapelady, mcquilts, Diane, Angie.  They are appreciated.

I’m linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.
