Sew Every Day 10

 And now for something completely different. Imagine my surprise when I found a binder on my bookshelf with all these blocks and a baggie full of HSTs! In January 2010, I started working on the Star Crazy block of the month at the Quilt Channel. After the first three months, I forgot all about it!

Day 10 sewing: 1 full Irish Chain block, 8 half IC blocks,

and six more small stars made from the bag of HSTs. The portable design wall is leaning up against the back of the couch.

I have enough HSTs left to make 4 extra blocks, so I can move the colors around a bit. Here is my set up on the tiny design board next to my machine. It really does come in handy.

Looking forward to Day 11 after breakfast with a friend.

I love how you did something different with the centers of each of the stars! The colours are beautiful and the background fabric is perfect! Looking great so far and I can't wait to see the finished top!
