So cute! And look at you emptying scrap bins! Wow!
I like that. What is the name of the pattern.?
That is what I thought you meant. Nice for those with an artistic talent.
Does this pattern have a name. I can see it would use up lots of scraps. I'm with you on emptying a UFO bin. My goal is to get mine past the flimsy state. Of course, while finishing up quilts, I also start some new ones. It is my nature.........
Tutorials are fun...the way I can do it :P
very nice. My scraps are actually in color sorted ziplock bags. feels weird having so few scraps. I'm sure I'll generate more soon
I've been order wide backing from Connecting threads for several years, specifically one of the whites, to use for piecing. It has a very nice weight and drape. It doesn't feel at all like many backings. But then I recently ordered a couple more to use as borders and noticed something. The wide backs that are connecting threads brand use a very nice greige, but the two I purchased that were "designer name brand" were not near as nice, more like the rough woven ones from Joann. I went back and looked at the backing from CT that I liked and yup, they were all Connecting Threads brand. Interesting that Micheal Miller and windham were using less quality for the base fabric. CT regularly puts the backing on sale, genereally $13 per yard, which works out to less than $5 per yard of regular fabric, pretty sweet deal.
No pattern but updated the post with how I get the angle sides.
updated my original post with youtube tutorial on angles.
Here's a tutorial I made on that pattern, if it helps: https://quiltingjustforfun.blogspot.com/2018/10/slanty-stars.html
