What I like about this pattern is that it uses snowball blocks and nine-patches with colors and values placed just so to come up with this gorgeous star pattern. I have had a marathon cutting session the last couple of days (over 900 2 1/2" squares and about 60 6 1/2" squares) so that I could eventually just sit and sew--mindlessly. Bernie (my Bernina) is in the shop for some servicing so I will start stitching the blocks on my Featherweight. It is great for just good ole' straight seam sewing.
Hope everyone is enjoying a restful Memorial Day. Ours has been very quiet--just the way I like it!
