Last Saturday Susan and I went to NYC to the Empire Quilt Show. Here is what I bought:
Here is what I won (lucky me)!
Here is what I saw (my favorite at the show):
Congratulations Betsy, great modern twist on a traditional pattern!
Before going back to CT, we had a cocktail under the Starry Sky at Grand Central Station.
I've had a couple of inquiries about how I'm making my 4 inch Stars for the Stars in a Time Warp sew along.
Judy sent me a smilebox video of how she makes her flying geese units for her stars. You can see it by clicking here.
Angie did a great post on her method with a link to a flying geese tutorial.
I've decided to make little 4 inch stars. I am making only 1 a week, so I'm doing it this way. It is only taking me about 15 minutes a week (after I pick fabrics).
From the background I cut 4 pieces 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" and 4 squares 1-1/2".
You can see how to use it here.
I press the last 2 seams open to keep the block nice and flat.
and there you have it!
And here are my little stars so far.
