Lots of Little Pink Stars

Bette Faries' Lots of Little Pink Stars

I've joined yet another block of the month. The very first Lots of Little Pink Stars quilt took two or three years to make, so that sounds promising since I need to finish it by the end of the year, haha!

After getting help from the shop on how to use the tool: Mini Fit to be Geese I tackeled my first block, which took me forever.

1 star down... 335 to go!

Then if you think that's a big number, consider having to do 696 sawtooth sets for the borders.

This month alone, I need to make 36 stars.
Then next month do it all over again.

I hope I don't get too discouraged!

My very first star!

Where are you going to put this one when it's finished?
Are you going to quilt it, or someone else?

The Fit to be Geese ruler has you trim all 4 sides separately - I was shown one way to cut fabric and then heard of another (the way in the directions. I'll share what I've learned and hope to try out the other cutting mehtod later this week. See you at club!
