Thanks to a friend I was introduced to A Sentimental Quilter today. Now it wasn't as if I hadn't heard of Kathleen Tracy and her wonderful "little"quilt books before, but I was ignorant of the fact that she hosted a blog. So inspired was I after reading through her posts that I decided to do a bit of block making myself.
Although I desperately wanted to, I couldn't justify going hog wild and cutting away at a new mini quilt project knowing that the pattern for my second "Stash Party Stars" block of the month was awaiting attention. And so I tackled the 12 x 12 inch monster and am proud to say did a much better job of it! Sure I clipped a few of the corners off in the stitching process and have a bit of misalignment here and there but overall the nook witnessed far less grumbling and ripping out of seams than it did during last month's endeavour!
