Finally!

It has taken so much longer than I thought it would, but I have finally finished the blocks for my 'Starstruck Again' quilt.

If I'm a really good girl, I'll get some of the top assembled tonight, and then I can get busy thinking about how I'd like to quilt it.

There were a couple of the blue fabrics that I ran very short of, so I scrimped and saved and pieced some components just like quilters of yore. Don't you think little elements like that add to the interest of the quilt??

I do love that practice of piecing the pieces :-). Looks good, Tazzie.

You are doing just what our ancestors did to finish their quilts!

Piecing the pieces is a great way to go. Besides, what a good way to use up the bits! Can't wait to see the quilt...

This will be such a pretty quilt! I always feel very proud when I can use up little bits in this manner. And an extra seem doesn't bother me a bit!

I have pieced pieces, too, but usually because I cut wrong. LOL

I've got an antique quilt top that has multiple pieces sewn to make up triangles or parts of squares--it is a jumbled mess up close but from even a couple of feet away really is not noticeable. I like it's funkiness. Can't wait to see your quilt top completed.
