Design Wall Monday - June 18, 2012


Now that my test block is completed, I moved on to constructing the diamonds for the star wall hanging.

I'm starting to get the hang of sewing the diamonds together and matching the points.  I starched the fabric before cutting, but I'm finding that the bias edges still do some stretching. 

Making the diamonds for the center star took me a lot longer than I thought it would because I made a few cutting mistakes along the way.  Thank goodness I added extra into my fabric requirement calculations and had enough to make the fixes.  I also made all eight outer diamonds. 

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit Judy's blog to see what others have on their design walls this week.

Happy Sewing, Quilting, and Knitting!!!
