I *should* know better than to give myself a deadline. And yet, Pretty Fabric + Online class in Angles + Christmas Quilt Hint from Sister In Law = more than my quilty brain can handle. I had to dive in. I'm not quite sure whether this started with my unhealthy infatuation with Robert Kaufman's Holiday Flourish Line at my LQS (see below)
Or with my love of the "Emerge" Quilt from the "Angled" Class I recently took at Stitched in Color:
and honestly, maybe it was a little of both. But they just fit so well together! And, since I'm itching to practice the skills taught in my online class, it seems there's no time like the present. I cut this out and put it on my design wall last week....
And this week the lone star is pieced. I got carried away during the piecing process, and made an entire star. Next up is making my "quilt sandwich" and attaching my star to it, per the class instructions.
