After two weeks break I sewed four stars for my starry quilt today.
I tried to focus on Pinwheel stars... but there is only two pinwheels and one... odd... variation of it.
Do you remember last week's Designer Mystery block 'County Fair'? Then I dreamed of doing a star variation of it...
... and now it's here;o)... the biggest star on the left.
If you like to sew it, I give you cutting instructions for the middle part of the star. The points of the star are made same way as in the Basic Sawtooth Star pattern.
Fabric A: cut two 3 7/8" x 3 7/8" squares
Fabric B: cut one 3 7/8" x 3 7/8 square
Fabric C: two 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" squares
Fabric D: cut one 3 7/8" x 3 7/8 square
Fabric E: two 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" squares
Oh, maybe it's better that I give you also some sewing instructions?
First draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of the Fabric A squares. With right sides facing, layer one Fabric A square with a Fabric B square. Stitch 1/4" from each side of the drawn line. Cut apart on the marked line. You will get two A/B units, which should measure 3 1/2" x 3 1/2". Repeat this with Fabrics A/D.
Now you should have four HST units on your sewing table ;o).
By the way... I pressed all the seams open.
Then draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of the Fabric C and Fabric E squares. With right sides facing, layer Fabric C with Fabric A/B unit and Fabric E with Fabric A/D unit. Pay close attention to the direction of the Fabric A/B and Fabric A/D units. Stitch on the drawn line and trim 1/4" away from the seam. Don't throw away those trimmed pieces! You can sew the middle part of 8" star of them!
Now you should have two Fabric A/B/C and two Fabric A/D/E units, which should measure 3 1/2" x 3 1/2".
Sew those units together... you see assembling from the photo above.
You have now sewn the middle part of the star...
should we call it as a variation star of 'County Fair'?
Oh my, there is many little stars undone...
What else I have done...
Virtual Quilting Bee continued last Friday... ... with Going Dutch block #4.
I like the other blocks, but somehow the third block is not my favorite. It's so different than the others...
if I tell you the true, I regret now that I used the blue Fat Quarters of Beach House to it.
I also got ready the fifth block of Pumpkinville BOM...
and started to applique the row of the pumpkin cars;o)
Now I have updated my doings... what is going on there at yours...?
I WISH you A CreAtive WeekEND!!!
