Incompetent Quilter

That would be me and have proof.  Since the last loop on the Gossip rug was pulled (yay), it has been steamed and resting.  Needing something to do decided to sew a few quilt strips together and a few previously sewn blocks. 

Remember last month when I posted about finding my container of fabric and previously cut quilt pieces and some sewn blocks?  If not, you can read the post HERE.

First of all, let me say that I did NOT have a pattern for this quilt. I saw a photo of a star quilt in a magazine somewhere a few years ago, fell in love and decided ..."I can do that".  Yeah, right.  Made my own star drawing, cut the sections, added seam allowance and hope it worked.  

Okay, first problem was getting the dimensions of the main center to line up with the smaller star blocks.  OY!  That was a task in itself.  Then decided to sew the top and bottom smaller blocks to the large center.
Uh, do you see anything wrong with that picture above, lol?  Yeah, the top row of stars are upside down.  No way I could leave it that way before nightfall or I'd probably have packed everything back up and put it in the attic again out of frustration.
Now it is time for me to start a new hooking project.  I'm not ready to divulge the project yet but it is something from my pattern stash.  All too often I get a hankering to draw an antique adaptation when there are patterns in the stash waiting for attention.

Storm came thru this afternoon leaving some much needed rain and hopefully the temperatures will drop a little.

Happy Saturday to you all.



  1. Hi Saundra,
    A BIG CONGRATS on pulling the last loop!!
    I think anyone who sews has done that very same thing!! I have done it MANY TIMES!
    Looks like you got it fixed and now can take a break and think about that next rug!! I really do love those stars though!!
    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I think it is wonderful. I do have similar pattens, just not good at piecing and I know mine would be wonky, lol.
