Star Crazy Month 1 First Block

So of course I had to start experimenting with making the hst with the foundation paper and loved how they turned out.

I started with 2 61/2 inch fabric and the foundation paper, lined them up and sewed along the dashed line:

Then cut along the solid lines:

And then remove the paper and a little iron and here are some 2 1/2 inch hst:

Made more orange and pink hst:

And then assembled them into the first block which is 8 1/2 inched square:

Overall a very productive and enjoyable few hours.

Star Crazy

So it seems like all I do lately is start projects and here is another one that I am about to start. Eddies had a July 4th sale this weekend and as I had two gift cards I decided to do some shopping. I got a rainbow of 1/2 yards and had great fun picking them out.

Got some nice shades of blue,purple, yellow, orange, pink, green and red and with a nice white and white as the background I am off and running on my another project.

This is a BOM from The Quilt Show and the HST are done with foundation paper which will be a first for me.

Oh and here is what it will eventually look like:

Now I have to decide if tonight I actually start this or continue on with Labyrinth or the Wonky log cabin.
