Yesterday I continued to admire my place mats. I went to a class in the afternoon at the local quilt shop and learned how to make these super cute napkins:
So now I need to get crackin' on making the rest of them (7 to go!)
Last night, I finished all of my star points, finally.
So then I had to start getting the stars put together. And I finished them all.
Something I'd like to say about this pattern in general. It may look pretty complicated, but doing it step-by-step definitely breaks it down into manageable sections that even a chemistry graduate student can fit into her schedule. You could really get it done in a matter of days if you really wanted. The matching was a lot easier than I expected as well. I've done a number of projects with an excessive amount of matching, and there was hardly any taking out and restitching. And I'm a huge fan of that.
I laid out all my finished blocks out on my floor and have been admiring it since.
I'm in love.
