Three Stars for Collector

After my whining about ironing and cutting in the heat yesterday, I remembered that I have a couple of projects that are already cut. Here are the first three Sawtooth Stars for my Collector Quilt:






I am always telling myself that I hate fussy-cutting, but I realized yesterday that can't be true, because I keep doing it!

There are a lot of scant seams in these blocks, because I didn't cut the backgrounds in the wisest way. I will have to trim out some of the dark colours in the seam allowances where they show through. Live and learn!

  4. It's a great effect. Good job you remembered you had already done the cutting - another job for Winter must be advance cutting enough projects to get through Summer!

    1. LOL, ouch! People complain about the long winters in Canada, but I don't know if they are long enough to do everything I should really do then!

      I took advantage of cooler weather today to start cutting the next section of Riviera Star, and I still only got half done. I think I need to adjust my expectations!
