So very much later: 2014, August 25
Yikes, almost a year has passed since I worked on this one. No wonder I found the storage bag in deep storage in the storage unit. Other things have gotten in the way: ie. 1. we went to Ecuador the 28th of Sept. - No sewing taken with me; 2. We then proceeded on to Spain late Nov. - again no sewing other than hand sewing; 3. A stint back home for awhile; 4. and then we were off to Africa - again no sewing, none, nada; 5. And no sooner had we returned from Africa and we were off to DisneyWorld as a last horraaaaaah with DGS#2. Now we are back but no where near the storage unit to get it out. So it will be even longer I know! Oh well, it waits patiently for my return and when I do, it will be done.
and a pre-planned, pre-drawn paper pieced star outline,
I trimmed the center to 5 ½ x 5 ½”.
From here I then outlined the block section by section until it was > 15 ½ x 15 1/2”.
Along came a spider that lay down beside me whispering in my ear that I should sew-along with the group as it would be great way to do a military “Thank You” quilt that I have been wanting to do. So after pondering the situation, a finishing u a UFO, I thought, Why not?
