I look at blogs and see all of the amazing things people are creating and think (stupidly), ‘hey I could do that’ and then I get all manic and crazy until I do it.
Enter the Lone Starburst.
I love it but it tortures me. Paper piecing, argh, all those fiddly little seams and then working out the pieces to cut and which goes where and…
so I decided to stop being a sook and have a go. I jumped in feet first and well after printing off all the templates and trimming them down and selecting my fabrics I realised that I needed more help.
and this is what I now have…along with this mess in my kitchen sink…
think next time I might take out the paper as I go to reduce the mess at the end or maybe not use normal paper – a light weight paper that can run through my printer might be better.
Live and learn.
I think it shall become a pillow front once I stand looking at it again.
On a positive note I have my first 2 finished for the year (YAY) – flour sack tea towels.
These are going into my birthday love stash.
