This week's WIP is a do. Good Stitches quilt top that I'm proud to be putting together for the Cheer circle. Yay!!!
This block is from SewCraftyJess's Starburst Cross Tutorial. I picked it because the star points were towards the middle of the blocks, and I could square up the blocks to a consistent size if some of them came in smaller than the 12.5" outlined in the tutorial.
Alas, two of the blocks that came in were really small. I decided that I could piece them into the back and just fill in the two empty spaces on the front with coordinating fabric. I'm really happy with the way that turned out.
I'm glad it wasn't too windy for picture taking today. It was a good opportunity to figure out how to use the Austin Modern Quilt Guild's new quilt display stand from Craftgard. I'm bringing it to our Quilt Photo Shoot event on Saturday, so I figured I should probably determine how to use it. I'm so glad I did, because now I know to bring giant hardware store clips instead of just clothespins for folks whose quilts don't have quilt sleeves. I also have some curtain hook rings with clips on them that should be a good fit, too. I'll try those out and report back about our photo shoot next week!
