what a stinker!

This month for the Quilt Club Australia bee we were asked to make a lonestar string block using red, white and blue - being the staunch anglophile I am, I have quite a bit of fabric in those colours so finding scraps wasn't going to be a problem.

I have foundation pieced lots of times, so that wasn't going to be a problem.

However, I am never going to make another one of these blocks in my life.......


That's all

  9. You crack me up. I did a bunch for the red starry quilt this summer, and guess what--I feel the same way you do! But mine was easier in a way--I didn't have to put it "into" a sqaure for the background. Sewing it together with the diamonds might have been easier, I don't know.

    But hey--yours looks great!
