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.
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!
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!

Sometimes I need a deadline to keep me motivated to complete a quilt. What better motivation than participating in a bloghop?
While the snow and cold temperatures keep you inside, why not work on projects for this year's fair? The full listing is available to download now!
This month's block used paper piecing technique, one that all three of us were familiar with and happy to assemble!
My favourite customer, Ashley asked me to make a quilt from her daughter's baby clothes. I have previously made her quilts for her sisiter-in-law, her boys and she won a school quilt!
August's quilting technique was English Paper Piecing (EPP), a method I was skeptical to try at first.
