Ok, this has been finished for a few days but I got sidetracked (a common problem). This last star turned out greener than I expected though since I was using a leaf print I don't know why I am surprised. Even so, I think I'm finished making stars. I have 12 stars altogether. I started sometime last year (but before I started blogging so I have no record of a beginning) and made one a month though I took a sabbatical from it for a couple of months around Christmas.
Next step. What to do with them? Bzyqltr gave me some ideas to pursue and I've been trying to design the layout of the stars. I'm not very good with this part. As I've mentioned before, I hate numbers. I am at a complete loss in even the simplest math and so trying to figure out how much fabric is needed for 12 blocks with 20 corner blocks and 31 between sashings and......Oh forget it! How big is this quilt going to be? How many pieces do I need to cut? How much fabric do I still need to buy? How do I cut it so that I get the most out of the fabric? Sometimes I think I'm not suited to be a quilter (what a waste of 22 years!) I've scribbled all over a couple sheets of paper and made some calculations and put it aside for awhile and now looking at the paper have absolutely no idea what it means. Well, the cats as usual like my block. That's Lemi christening it and Cleo asking for a turn at sitting on it.
A great leap of faith I took yesterday was to join Tonya's online quilting class! I'm such an ol' stick in the mud it is hard to try new things but I really wanted to study under Tonya and I'm thankful for this computer age when we have the ability to at our fingertips even though she lives in France and I'm in Japan. We're supposed to keep things a little mysterious on our blogs so I may not have much to say about this upcoming experience but I will drop hints about what we are doing.
