Yesterday I took a class to make this Mexican Star wallhanging. It was a fun day even though there were only six of us who signed up. Our program chair was there, also, and she was working on a project for the monthly class she is teaching which will culminate in a lovely large quilt for the people taking the class. Today I have been working on getting my blocks finished and, by golly, I have done that.
This is a piece of batik that I have in the hanging. I think this is gorgeous. Planning the colors is part of the fun for me. Sometimes, I question what I have picked out, but I am pretty happy with how this is turning out. Piecing is not my first love in quilting and I most likely won't make another little quilt like this but amvery glad that I made this one.
Here it is laid out on the bed ready to be sewn together. Next time I show it in a post, hopefully I will have it quilted and bound. I took my camera along yesterday and, if you haven't already guessed, forgot to take it out and take pictures. Eventually I hope to be able to show you the ones made by Stephanie, Kathy, Leslie, Marcia and Helen. All of them are so pretty. (Click to enlarge)
