Last week at my local guild meeting, we had our annual book sale. Our guild library keeps an inventory of about 300 items. Each year we sell some that are outdated or not of interest, and members also donate unwanted books from their own libraries to sell.
I bought three books, two bucks apiece. One of them offers a number of patterns for 60″ blocks. Add a couple of borders to a block that size, and you have a quilt!
The block above is adapted from one of the book’s blocks. I didn’t have enough of the grey background fabric to make it at 60″, so I downsized it to 32″.
I like the star in a star in a star arrangement.
Here’s a question: how accurate do your seams need to be to keep you happy? What magnitude of error (points not showing, seams not lining up) leads you to re-do a seam?
Another question: do you always press seams to the side? or open? Do you ever deliberately press seams multiple directions, just smashing them down in between?
