I came across this vintage star block recently and pulled it out to ponder what to do with it.
It’s a full inch longer on one side than the other! I thought it would make a good addition to my wall of red, white, and blue minis if I finished it. So I added some strips of vintage fabric around the edges and squared that up. I didn’t want to trim the block at all.
I marked it with this stencil. I will go back and freehand extra lines of quilting once the marked grid is done.
I basted with safety pins since I had something else on the long arm frame. I much prefer thread basting.
I’ll quilt this little one without a hoop. I hope to have it done just in time to baste my pink quilt.
Have a great day!
