My first hand sewing project

A few weeks ago, I read this post at Crazy Mom Quilts.   She was talking about a new portable project she was starting.   I was deep in the middle of my first applique project and I  was really enjoying the hand portion of the project.   Her project looked so cool!  Next  I read her inspiration for this quilt, on Jessica’s blog.  Then I ordered the Quilt Patis that she used.

After cutting many many diamonds, I started playing with possible layouts.

I came up with 2 ideas, either a bunch of stars with a small white border between the stars or 1 large star.

Star Quilt layout options

I’ve got the first star done.

I’ve decided to go with the single star layout.  Can’t wait to start adding the next rows!
