Friday Night Sew In - Fuschia Seven Sisters
Fuschia Seven Sisters Stars
Last night on I worked on piecing one of my Seven Sisters quilts. This is the 4th quilt top that I am making in a series of seven that I am hand piecing and hand quilting. I started this top a while ago and I already had some of the stars in different stages of completion. Last night I joined half stars together to make complete stars. There are seven 6-pointed stars in each block and 12 blocks total. I put together 10 stars last night which is enough for 1.5 blocks. I added them to ones already completed and I now have enough for just over 4 blocks. Once I get all of the stars made I will start cutting the fabric for the joining diamonds and background pieces.
