I have been making stars to kill time. I finished one, which I had re-designed and discovered that I didn't plan for the correct meeting of two points. I still like the design, but I had to throw out what I had done because there was no way I could figure out how to redeem it. My bulldog gene has not left me though. I will do the design correctly and re-make the star. Wasted fabric is not an issue - I'm trying to get rid of what is left from the Phoenix and there is plenty more for the star project.
If you have followed this blog you know about the troubles I had with my Phoenix quilt. It was created from a drawing by my teenage granddaughter. I ran into one problem after another, but that bulldog gene enhanced my determination to get it done and to do it right. In the end, after 1 1/2 years of stitches and ripping, I finally finished. It has been to its first show, HMQS (Home Machine Quilting Show) in Salt Lake City. It is was granted a Judge's Choice award.
Finally I can unveil my mythological bird and show you the finished product.
Sew many happy seams in the next three weeks.
