And then there were six. These are the first of 365 3″ finished LeMoyne stars I need for the Star-a-Day quilt by Karen Styles.
The idea is to stitch one star a day and at the end of the year you’ll have enough stars to make an 81″ x 81″ quilt. The designer recommends that the quilt be assembled in sections as you go along so you don’t end up with a pile of stars at the end of the year. I need a few more stars before I try to assemble my first section.
As for piecing them one a day, I can see an advantage to that – I did three last night and I can feel it in my wrist. Given that I need to also be working on the DWR binding, I need to pace myself.
As for the DWR, I need to get it back to the sewing machine. There’s a section which I need to re-stitch. It won’t take long, but it does require swapping the pressure foot on the machine and changing thread. I guess I’ll do that after work today. That is after I stitch a few more of these blocks. There are six laying on my sewing table ready for me to stitch the 2nd strip to them and a whole stack that need both strips.
