I've been working on stars all weekend. Bea designed this paper-pieced block in EQ. They finish 12". Each block is made in 8 sections (two print to a page), and there are 9 pieces in each section.
Yup. That's 72 pieces in each block. Yikes! Worse yet, I was getting up and pressing and cutting after each line of stitching. New system, all set up at the machine now. Whew. I've gotten it down to 15 minutes a section, so that's two hours per block, not counting selecting fabrics, cutting to size for piecing, and removing the paper.
This is not a swap to let slide! But I did. Life happened on so many fronts, and I'm under the wire now. Back to stitching. I need 10 total, 2 each of 5 colorways. Plus my own, but that can and will wait.
How's your weekend going? I'm thankful for the extra hour. Hey, that's half a block:)
