How exciting for quilters around the world. Please take the time to read about Russia’s patchwork; it is fascinating.
I wanted to start the year with something small. This would guarantee at least my first month would be successful. I call this Wayward Star.
First I needed a pattern. I was interested in the Carpenter’s Star, but didn’t want to make a full size quilt. This is a very easy pattern made from half-square triangles and squares. The beauty of the design is in the color placement creating dimension. I went to Electric Quilt 7 to lay out my pattern. Not being versed in the software led to some challenges; like saving. (*note to self: sign up for EQ7 classes.) Fortunately I had taken a picture of my computer screen so all was not lost. With this picture I was able to come up with the amount of each color combination I needed.
