In a box from the estate sale, I found 2 star blocks. and several sets of cut 45 degree diamonds. The seams and blocks are wonky. I can see why she didn't finish them.
I want to make an 8 pointed star with my string diamonds, so I thought I would use some of the pieces to practice. This was mine. before the y seams. Aren't these fabrics a blast from the past? I still love them.
This was mine after the y seams. I think I can do it. I think it will be fun. I am thinking the trick is in the pressing and marking that silly dot to stop and backstitch.
I spent 15 minutes cutting up scrap treasures, using the 1 1/2 inch accuquilt strip die.
