The plan was to make 3 of each star for 14 weeks and be done by mid-October. I am currently approaching the halfway point at mid-October, so the plan wasn't followed, but I am really happy with how it is going so far. I was also going to document them as I went, and that didn't happen either. Oh well. :) I am finding that the cutting of the pieces is really time consuming, especially deciding on the color combinations. These stars are going to eventually be a queen-sized star sampler for our bed.
Tutorials for these stars are at Fresh Lemons Modern Quilts and I am using the 5 Solstice Stars Series stars and the stars from her Summer Sampler Series, as well as a couple from another site that I will share when I get to them.
15 out of 42 completed:
Whirling Star (paper pieced)
Star of Mystery (paper pieced)
Two Colored Star - 3rd one is cut out and my triangle squares are pieced, but I LOST a piece! Hoping it will show up this week, or else I'll just cut another little piece and finish it up.
Star of Virginia - I just put this one together tonight and the other 2 are cut and ready to go. I also got 3 Bordered Stars cut tonight too, so hopefully sooner than later I can get those posted. That will put me at 21 stars and halfway!
