I am 1/4 done with my first star BOM. Nothing to brag about, but it is my first attempt at paper piecing, and it didn’t go horribly wrong, so I’m stoked. I think I psyched myself out, as it wasn’t that difficult. I also did get some great instruction at the last Chicago Modern Quilt Guild Meeting from Wayne, and I have Betsy’s directions, and I did watch a few videos. I still felt clueless when I began, but I went on, and it worked out fine. Cookie for me! Now I need to follow directions and print out more of the template so I can continue tomorrow, ‘cuz I definitely didn’t do that the first time.
