The centre star looks daunting, but Penny wrote a terrific tutorial for drafting a foundation piecing pattern from the templates provided in the book. I was nervous to try it, but took a deep breath and just went for it. I'm so glad I did!
I also began pulling fabric from my stash for this quilt. I am basing the palatte on a print from Shelbourne Falls by Denyse Schmidt: pink, red, navy and teal, plus low volume prints for the background.
Finally, last night I took a Serger Essentials class at The Workroom. It was a great introduction to sergers although now I really want to buy one! I made four luncheon napkins. They have a rolled hem and I used a piece of vintage fabric I purchased over a year ago at St. Lawrence Market from Jan of Fabrique Fantastique. It's perfect for napkins.
