Then I decided it was time to do verykerryberry's Wonky Star QAL. I saw a quilt on PinInterest that lead me back to the QAL. http://verykerryberry.blogspot.com/p/quilt-long.html. This was my first attempt at the wonky star. The fabric is cut into 12 1/2" pieces and then subcut into nine uneven pieces. I had trouble with the short and narrow strips. You can see my points were not there.
The second block turned out better. I am starting to get the hang of it. Only eight more blocks to go. This is a baby quilt.
I also got all my string blocks completed. I still have to cut my corner and side pieces and put the whole thing together. I had a pretty productive sewing weekend.
I also went to a presentation by the Janome educator at my local sewing machine retailer. I am in love with the Janome 7700. We got to try fmq and did a small project where we got to try out a variety of stitches. I am going to save my pennies for this baby.
