Fix it and Finish it!

I've been working against the clock to make progress on several projects, so this month's goal is to complete the quilt called Irish Stars for a customer.

You can read about my big setback this past weekend here,but this is a look at how silly I was in assembling the small star blocks.

Small star blocks - only 1 sewn correctly in the whole quilt!

I guess I just had my eyes and brain focused on getting fabric under the presser foot, and forgot to keep track of the orientation. I have asked myself time and again the past day how I could have added 2 border rounds and not notice the centre wasn't a star....oh, well!

Painstakingly slow frogging of blocks

I have unsewn and reassembled 5 blocks, so there are 7 more to go. Then I can put a backing together and start basting!

Hopefully the next few sewing days are much more productive! Thank goodness for seam rippers and wine!
