'What a stinker!' was what Kay from Shocking Hocking named our Quilt Club Australia September Bee block for Jodie. Bespoke Bites and Quiet Play also agreed that it was time consuming. I was thinking that there had to be a way to make the project easier. The block is called the Stripey Lone Star and the tutorial can be found at Leisl Made.
So I made a diamond template and decided to foundation paper piece the 1" strips across the length and then cut them up later. I think it helped speed things up.
But I should have made my white squares a bit larger like Quiet Play and then cut them down. My 2nd half was a bit wonky and so I had to trim a bit through the middle so it does not quite match up.
I did have 2 diamonds and lots of R,W & B strips leftover to send to Jodie.
Just White and Blue - Flower of Scotland
Only two colours adorn the flag of Scotland. Eldest son Duncan has been doing a World Music project for the past 3 weeks and we finished it up together last night.
|That's the piper outside the church on our wedding day and that's us looking much younger|
So that heritage led Duncan to chose the bagpipes of Scotland.
One of my favourite shows is called 'Who do you think you are?' both the UK and the Australian versions. My dad has researched a bit of our heritage and has found some interesting revelations. I hope to hear more.
