I just pulled out a quilt I started a couple of years ago and put away for various reasons that seemed good at the time. All I have left are three borders - two plain, and one pieced. I spent more time trying to figure out what I needed to do next than I would have spent if I'd just finished the quilt in the first place! And that's as far as I got yesterday. Not done yet.

I find that your method is the best way to tackle that star. Others might not agree but my geese are always perfect when I use Monique's ruler.

Ah, but today's hash is fodder for another star project!

I also make 4 Flying Geese rather than use HSTs for star points as I don't like that seam either. I use a method I learned from a Mary Sue Suit book titled "All the Blocks Are Flying Geese" that yields 4 matching flying geese.

We're off to see the cardiologist today so I need to get moving.



Cute little star blocks and love them either way but much cleaner with flying geese. You could use the trial and errors on the back or in the label ;))))


Been there and done that! However, your final star is beautiful! ;p

Talk about languishing projects. I took out a project to finish. I just need to sew on the borders, quilt and bind. I looked at the fabric for the narrow first border and the shop had cut it 17", not half a yard and I don't know where I bought it. So I had to cut the strips narrower than planned. Grrrrrrrr!!!!!
