Block in Progress: Evening Star

It was a big day in the world of quilty education. As soon as I woke up, I did my online enrollment for classes at International Quilt Festival in Houston. Woohoo! Anyone need a hotel roommate in Houston for the week?

In other exciting quilty education news, the workshop and lecture info for QuiltCon was released today as well. The lineup is amazing! I'm glad I have some time to look everything over and make some tough decisions before enrollment opens on my birthday, August 30th!

In actual quilting news, I worked on an Evening Star block from the Summer Sampler Series in some beautiful Terrain fabrics today. It was a little slow going, but I got this far before some crazy weather blew in. I had to take pictures outside to get enough light, and all of the pieces were blowing away. 

Right after I took photos, the bottom fell out. I also realized that I forgot to cut out some of the fabric as I was piecing this section. The orange shows right through. I'll have to snip it out carefully. Oops. That's how the process is, though. Sometimes mistakes are made ;-)

I hope your crafting was mistake-free today! I'm linking up with Sew Happy Geek, Polly Want a Crafter, and Keeping it Simple.

  1. Ooh this looks pretty and complicated!
    If I was going to Houston I would so be your roomie!

  2. I don't know that my crafting is ever mistake-free!

  3. Such a pretty block! I made exactly the same mistake recently and had to go over about 1/4 of my block with tiny little scissors.

  4. Ooh, sounds like you have loads of quilty adventures ahead of you :o) Is your mum excited at getting to go to SS now?

  5. Never heard of mistake-free sewing/crafting. Your block is amazing!
