baby steps until it's done

I'm working slowly on the feathered star block.

All I did yesterday was cut two 10 inch squares - and cut bias strips, that seemed like a lot so I quit.  Later in the evening, I sewed them up and took a picture outside on the cement (so the colors would show more true.) 

Isn't this strange?  Doesn't look like it's going to part of a feathered star.

Here's what happens next.

Little squares are cut.  Isn't this a cool method?  So much better than sewing up 1 1/2 inch squares! 

That's all for now. 

Have fun sewing!



  1. That's a clever way of doing HSTs. I haven't seen this before.

  2. I have never seen that method for making the small HSTs - I like it!

  3. I have seen that method, but I have never tried it. I bet you get nice, accurate half-square triangles that way. They are so small, that would be a good way to do them.
