Getting some things together for the next big quilt retreat.
I had previously shown these three Hearts and Hands star blocks without their centers.
Since then I have cut out all the strips that I will need to make another 50 of these star blocks.
Next step was to get the centers cut out and get a running stitch done so that I could gather the circles over the template.
Here's my stack of circles (53). They kind of remind me of cupcake papers.
Now I have all 53 centers gathered up, pressed and ready to applique to the star blocks that will be made at retreat. Now I have no excuses not to get going on this quilt. These blocks may be time consuming, but I am well on my way.
Now to come up with a couple other projects for retreat. That means I have to dig into the UFO pile and see what is next. I should probably just do eenie, meenie, minee, moe.
