It's time for me to make August's block.
Ellen has chosen the Triple Star, it seems to be the most popular block in our hive.
About 2 months ago, Ellen mailed all the hive members the little center block you see below with the bumble bee.
She said she wants to make her little daughter a quilt for her bed, and that we needed to use bright, happy colors to match the square.
These are the colors I chose :)
Here's the first block.
Here's the second one.
Here's the triple star.
Do you notice how I messed up? Aaaaaggghhhh!!!!
I thought very seriously about leaving it, but I just couldn't.
I had to take off the entire outer star, and re sew the half square triangles together.
How did it happen?
I tried chain piecing instead of laying the pieces out each time I sewed them to make sure they were in the right order.
