    Default When **** happens it is a design choice !

    Hi

    I decided to try to make a lone star with 1.5" strips. The diamond are so cute and tiny.
    And tonight I thought I put on the squares and triangles for the background.

    But I must have been tired or something for the block did not turned out square as planned.
    But I like the new way. I will make it a table topper and practice fmq on it.

    I still need more practice on those square and triangles. They still give me headache.

    It is good to work out all the kinks and problem on stash fabric that just have been sitting in my stash and taking up space for the fabric that I want to get.

    That way when I start on the main quilt and pretty fabric I got the pattern down. ;-)
    At least I am getting better on matching the points on the diamonds.

    But somehow the diamonds gets wonky on me during the process and the finished block is wonky.
    I have repressed it and starch the heck out of it and I think I can quilt out the remaining wonkiness.

    Anyway I am having fun !

    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.
