My First String Pieced Star block finished!
I've been tracing the diamond template onto old phone book pages, I can cut the 8 needed for 1 block all at the same time. I've got the diamonds for 2 more blocks strip pieced waiting to be pieced into blocks. The 1st block took me about 3 hours to piece. I think it turned out pretty good I just hope they all won't take so long. Its quite a fiddly process with all the inset seams. If they all turn out like this one I'll be happy. I really love strip piecing and using novelties in with the brights means there'll be lots to see.
Bye for now,
