FWS Block 78

As I hoped, I did manage to get the FWS block made this evening. Three words: Bulky Seam Intersections! In two areas, there are nine fabrics intersecting - just about need a hammer to flatten them out :-)

Block 78 - Shooting Star

Block Total: 97

Time for me to make lunches and head to bed. Though I may be tempted to stay up late and watch Wimbledon. Must resist ... if I watch too long I'll be kicking myself in the morning ...

I love your fabric combinations! I hate those bulky seams also. The block looks great!

Good Grief- all those seams would have driven me mad. Looking fabulous !

Haven't done that one yet, must get the hammer out of the toolbox ready for it :)

Totally unusual looking block. I agree about the hammer--I've nearly bent my ironing board trying to flatten things like this before :)

Actually a hammer is NOT a bad idea. Like you, I have heard that as a quilt tip and seen it demo'd. In fact at a sew-in a few years back, the group went across the street to the local hardware store in the small town where we were sewing and purchased the cutest little hammer that also contained a screw driver set in its handle! Mine is white with floral pattern on it.

I excluded this one from my design as I knew I would never, ever try it even as a 12 inch block let alone a 6---yep, color me chicken!
