DWM - Twinkle Twinkle Little Star - 8/12

Ok now I feel like I actually started Common Bride.  25  - 8 pointed stars.   Seems like a few of them have a bit more twinkle than others.  I made 28 and picked the best 25.  I think I should have made a few more!  Now I just need 200 4 patch units to start setting in those cute little stars.  The dreaded Y seam is not too far away.

A little more done on the flower blocks, not sure where this is heading, but we'll see.

My daughters friend is having twin girls, she wanted one boy :)  Have to get these quilted pretty soon, nice soft polka dot minky for the back.  Picture for some reason is really dark, that's a pretty purple at the top.

And a few more hexies done.  I really want to create some type of border around the blue so that I can get a star going or something.  Not sure where this one is going either

  5. Are you hand piecing the 'y' seams? Jo Morton showed me they are easier to do that way. You have plenty to do with two quilts to be quilted. Hexies too. Sew Busy, you are.

  6. Those are great stars, Sue. If you want an easy way to do y seams read the chapter on set in piecing in Sharon Craig and Harriet Hargreave's The Art of Classic Quiltmaking. Piece of cake after that. Love your baby quilts! And that hexie one is stunning.

  7. All your projects are great. I especially like your hexie project. I have to get on the band wagon and do some soon. You sure are a busy lady.

  8. Funny, I have no problem with Y seams but I can't seem to get multiple star points to lie down flat. I guess we all have are good "points" as well as our bad ones. ;-)

  10. Personally I am avoiding Y-seams. There has to be an easier way to put those blocks together. Not sure how myself.

  12. Beautiful stars!! the y seam isn't that hard. Just fold and line up the seams and sew. I have a tutorial on my blog click on y seam in the labels section
