I'm not making my quilt this huge. I plan to make it 63 x 72 unless I get burned out during the process in which case it will be what it will be! They suggest you make 44 stars per week. (A lot!)
I ordered a jelly roll of these Civil War reproduction fabrics to get a little bit of a rainbow going for my quilt. I have a limited amount of these reproduction fabrics so I'm thankful for my quilt bee friends who are so generous to share with me.
I washed my dark green background fabric with Color Grabbers 3 times.
The top sheet was the first wash! WOW! The good news is that the color will only run onto these Color Grabbers and not anything else. Yay.
Thangles are a lifesaver for accurate piecing.
(Remember I HATE triangles!)
This is a bunch of 1 1/2" squares for the star centers.
This is my first block of 9 stars.
Now I've done 4 blocks. This is 36 out of 348 stars.....
I've got quite a ways to go yet but I've FINISHED 4 blocks. :)
Stay tuned for more on this project.
