Since I am challenging myself to write every day, I figured I may as well challenge myself to finish some Works In Progress. I have been lucky enough to have some unfinished projects from other crafters to pull from as I create new projects.
These two eight point stars are perfect for trying out the skills I learned from the Fluff and Stuff class.
I took them apart, then pressed and backed with some left over linen fabric from my stash.
After sandwiching and basting, I followed the instructions from the class. Very slowly and carefully.
I had thoughts of grandeur in my head until I really started thinking about it and realized exactly how much thought quilting takes in the beginning. After rejecting some fancy stenciling, I decided to stick with some basic straight mimic lines. The true quilters make this look so easy. I assure you, it is not!
I am thrilled with the results. They look and feel quite fancy! But they are still unfinished. The last step is to add binding.
