Oh Cookie Monster! Who knew you loved anything besides cookies!! I do love Wonky Stars myself and decided to make a project with them for my mother as a pre-Christmas gift. This way she can have it now to enjoy.
When I was visiting her at Thanksgiving we went to Joann’s to shop the sales. She “spotted” this polka dotted fabric she liked so I bought a ¼ yard to use as the back of the table runner (this info was not disclosed to her!)
The two end stars were pieced from 2 ½” squares and the middle one with 3” squares. I fussy cut the center squares from another favorite of hers, old fashioned holiday print. I found the charming fabric with Victorian (?) winter/Santa scenes at Hobby Lobby. I contemplated sashing each block but decided not to because I like how the star blocks look like one piece. I free motion quilted around each star. On the boarder, I did loopy loops and I did struggled a bit. It was harder to go with the FMQ flow on a small piece and I was fighting my tension adjuster tooth and nail! Overall the FMQ looks fine (from a distance :P )
Ugh! Is it really December with so many more presents to sew? I do hope your holiday projects are coming along sparkily!!! :) Abbie
