template making my way

Lone Star Quilt

lots of different ways to tackle this bit of the quilt - this is my way.

you need will need some baking/ tracing paper, sticky tape,your ruler and a maker.

with a ruler draw the lines to mark out your triangle space

add in a 1/4 inch seam allowance on the outside.
The template needs to be 1/4 inch bigger than the space don't forget the bottom as well! it also needs 1/4 for what ever is next -eg another boarder or even just binding

mark the middle and cut 

Voila! decide how long you want your template to be - I've made mine short in this picture(finishing at the end of the star - I will actually make it longer after thinking about it, I want more room for machine quilting)

next is your corner square - same process as above

auditioning fabrics

I've changed my mind about the fabric I had chosen 
- I'm off looking for a lighter fabric 
maybe a chambray? or robert Kaufman shot cotton?? 

I will need around 1.5 - 2 meters of fabric, depends on the star size and how fussy you are at cutting etc.

I'm off!
