Glad you ar joining us ck. Welcome.
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I just had a thought . I'll bet she doesn't draw the 1/4 seam allowance in the book because if someone wanted to reduce the pattern, the seam allowance wouldn't be correct. I'm thinking about making the stars different sizes.
My book arrived yesterday! Still haven't figured out a color scheme so I guess I'll have to go browsing for fabric, oh darn. I like the idea of scrappy though, could use up some stash. But I'm tired of my stash (it isn't all that big, just one drawer) and would like to start the year bright and cheerful.
No the book does not have the outside seam allowance. So just make inlarge or decrease as you wish and then draw your seam allowance. If you have the cd with the patterns this will not be a issue. You could do what I do and pic a focus fabric and add fabric from your stash.
I have my fabrics for the first block picked out. Don't know if I can do eveything just from my stash, but will see how it goes. I hope everyone is having a great day!!
I have this book and the CD. I bought it when I took my first and only paper piecing class. This was the book we used. I quit after 3 blocks because we were using their fabric and a black background which I wasn't crazy about. i did use one of the blocks as the center of a round robin and it is beautiful.
I recieved my book and cd friday. Yay! Had a chance to play with it a little yesterday. Boy do I need the practice. I expect I will get faster and more comfortable as I go along. Now to pick out my background fabric. Something that will go with anything since most of the blocks will be scrappy.
Ok everybody. Only 6 days left. Are you getting ready. I hope to post a pic of my #1 star on Sunday. Who else has that plan?
I certainly will try, have two blocks to do then I'll start my first State Star. I looks pretty easy.
