For you that are continuing to follow me, thank you. I have made a personal vow to myself. While I am having to back off on blogging for just a season, my sewing has had to take a very back burner for far too long. Do you remember when I first started the Ahhhh's and the joy that I found in them? As I drew this one up for today I was so excited. It is absolutely beautiful. But did I get it finished? I think you all know the answer. So as I type this I am vowing to myself that I am going down to draw the very next one RIGHT NOW. And I am going to sew it up this week. And you know that will make me so incredibly happy!! (ok, who am I kidding. No way I can get it drawn up tonight. I am goal sitting for Saturday :))
I am also still hoping to figure out how to draw these in EQ someday. I would really like to publish them all drawn out already. I fear if I wait too long then my idea will be taken and I'll miss the boat. When one knows nothing about the computer this is a big hurdle to jump!
Anyway, this week's Ahhhh has a bit of a plain name..."The Star Pattern". It was published in "Weldon's Practical Patchwork" around 1890. It is anything but plain...it is beautiful. I cannot wait to finish mine in bright fussy cuts!!
Obviously not my work; and very obviously very bad camera work too!
I've already cut mine out but I think I am going to only piece the inner stars and applique it onto the outer hexagon. Those divided outer sections are a bit tricky and would be much easier as applique.
I will try to replace that photo of the block before the day is over...I just could not get to it at the time of publishing this.
