I'm pretty happy with how it's coming together - my points are not perfect at all, but they're only off by a couple of millimetres so I'm not going to fix them. I've decided to go a bit scrappy with the triangle points - so the stars will be green/black but with a few different fabrics thrown in. As you can see, some of the triangle centres will be black too (in the interest of having some value difference between the lighter fabrics and their centres). I'm cutting and sewing each block individually, so I'm really making up the layout as I go along - I'm just not sure what I'll do when I run out of space on my design wall...
I am really, really enjoying the process of making this quilt - I'm taking it slow and really just focusing on the joy of making it. It's a bit of a revelation for me. I do love sewing, but I think I tend to get really focussed on getting something finished, rather than enjoying the process of making it.
I had a bit of happy mail arrive today too. I was extremely excited to recieve an email a couple of weeks ago to say I'd won the giveaway on the Stash Books blog for Angela Walters newly released Free-Motion Quilting book. You may have noticed how much I love the quilting part of making quilts - I am so excited by the ideas and designs she presents. I can't wait to try out some of her ideas - especially on my Mendocino quilt and my Hopscotch quilt when they're done!
I've only flipped through it so far, and I can't wait to read it more thoroughly tonight.
Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
