One to go!

Hooray again!  Just one star to go.  I need to make one red baseball star and then I am all done and can start on the churn dash blocks and the other blocks to go in the quilt.  Woo hoo!  I am really pleased with how these blocks have turned out but I can't say I have enjoyed the process.   I think it is because up until today I didn't really get time to sit at them long enough to get into a routine so I kept making mistakes - whatever the reason I am glad that I only have one left to make.  I think I will do a bit of reading up on Paper Piecing 101 before I have to do more paper pieced blocks as there are probably some tricks that will help me to avoid mistakes in the future.
Now I am off to bed.  I have to be up in five hours to help DH and Fly Boy get out the door by 5am.  They are driving 3 1/2 hours to Canberra to attend the Australian Defence Force Academy Open Day.  Down and back in one day! 

Till next time...............happy stitching!


  1. Your star blocks look good to me. I know what you mean about putting the blocks together all piecemeal. It starts to feel like it is taking forever and mistakes do happen.

  2. Those blocks look fantastic..

  3. Fantastic looking blocks, I think you are having fun!
