I am working on a star block quilt. The instructions are not well done, there is no placement diagram, and the picture is of the quilt on a table and taken from an angle - you see the borders well, but the top - not so much. BUT even given that if I had REALLY looked hard I would NOT have made the stars scrappy. When I really look at it I see the stars are all the same print and the gingham borders around them are the same, too. Like --- a red star with a yellow sashing. But not mine. Nope - mine are scrappy, scrappy. Since I plan to keep this and use it as a table cloth on my kitchen table - no big deal, but SOMEDAY I will REALLY read the pattern. Maybe.
The first pick is my biggest excuse - I'm currently working on a different star block project which IS scrappy.
