Christmas Star Adventure

No pictures to post — yet. Picked up Vol. 16, No. 2 of Australian Patchwork & Quilting yesterday and fell in love with a few quilts — particularly the Christmas Star one. So I have decided to try making the Christmas Star quilt before Christmas. Using my sewing machine. This is unheard of for me as I do 99.99% of my piecing and appliqueing by hand.

However, I really want to try out Inklingo 2 using the machine. I’ve used it for blocks I’ve made by hand and love how easy it makes HST’s, QST’s and flying geese. But for this Christmas Star quilt, I want to try to make it by Christmas and, no matter how fast I might be at hand piecing, that is definitely not going to happen unless I haul out the machine.

Now to sort out which fabrics I want to use and get them printed with the shapes I need. I’d like to have at least one block of this done by mid-week and will be taking pictures of my progress as I go.
