Patchwork Stars

This week I sewed 'only' patchwork stars and only in two size: 
1 x 12" and 3 x 4".

 UPS, sorry! There is one lost star among the Oh, my Stars.

For the first time I used Open Gate's Fit to Be Geese -ruler.
So the new ruler was the reason, why there is one lost star...

I have mini size ruler. With this special ruler flying geese units are accurate, but there is some waste of fabric...

By the way while we are now speaking about accurate...
I made mistake while I pieced the first inner 9-patch for the 4 " star block. 
Actually the mistake is on the instruction page.
If you cut 9 x 1 1/4" squares (2. star on the photo), you'll sew too big inner 9-patch for the 4" star block...

... but if you cut 9 x 1 1/8" (= 3 cm) squares, 
you'll get about the right size (= 2 1/2") inner 9-patch unit. 
Oh, does this sound tricky?

The SAL project True Friends tote bag is now ready for the use...

... you'll find the short tale about my bag here.
And there you'll find also many other finished tote bags!

I'm glad you found a time to visit here...
have a lovely sewing week!

I do like your stars and thanks for the correction. Your bag turned out very nice. Blue - my favourite colour.

Your tote bag is beautiful, and you are coming along well with your stars! I know you are an accurate sewer and with the nex ruler your stars will be perfect.
