    My Star

    I took a class a couple weekends ago because I wanted to be able to make those beautiful star quilts people show. It cost me $35.00 and included the cut triangles, which was enough for the star and some left over. It came out a lot better than I thought it would, because lining all that up is a PITA. LOL!!

    Now I get to figure out how to make it block it, without making a mess. Any ideas? I know it may end up being Y seams, which will probably pucker it all.

    Right now each star tip is just pinned and it measures about 63 inches, star tip to star tip.

    Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone....NOT your housework!
