Big Star Day

Yesterday we held the first of our "Big Star Days" at the St Paul's Lutheran Church, McLaren Vale, South Australia.  I arrived at 8.45am for a 9.30 start and found Penny already set up and ready to go.  The sewers arrived bright and early as well.  All very keen!

I was nominated to lead the Lone Star group and Penny was looking after the Blended Star.  Everyone had pre-cutting to do, so we were straight into the stitching.

 The first part of the lone star involves sorting your fabric strips and sewing the strips all together - 6 strips in 3 different combinations.
 Then the strips get cut at 45 degree angle and put back together

 Sheridan shows how easy it is - got to get those points matching!
 Helen looks like it is easy as well
 Many different colour choices, but they all look stunning
 this is the Blended Star - made from lots of pre-cut squares and half square triangles. 
 This is Elaine's stunning colour choices
 One segment almost completed

 So, do you think it is starting to take shape?  Once all the strips are sewn, they go together very quickly
This was the first of our Big Star Days.  There is another on 19th November.  Anyone wanting to join in may still do so as we have a few place.  Email me Wendy@legendandlace.com and we can make arrangements.  The cost of the day is $50 which includes a delicious lunch, morning and afternoon tea/coffee and cakes.  Yum!  I forgot to take photos of the food.  Darn!
