This morning, I wanted to try something different from what I ususally do : machine piecing. Just to see if I liked it and whether I could achieve a nice star block with my sewing machine.
I have followed Edyta Sitar's instructions from the book Scrappy Firework Quilts and it wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. Have I enjoyed the process? Well, I don't know yet because it was my first attempt so it wasn't as fun as handpiecing but I am sure that with practise it could be fun.
I'd better stop talking and show you the block.
Any ideas on what to do with this block ? How about making three more identical blocks and making a small wall quilt ? It's an 11-inch block.
