Schools back, sewing is a go...JELLY STARS

Jelly stars...

Yeah school has gone back and today I got time to spend the afternoon sewing before school pickup..

The jelly stars have been started for a class project ..

Progress so far...

Start with a jelly roll and a bit about 60 strips of 2.5" strips.. Make your stars

Then sew stars together cut the background diamonds and wella. Stars galore...

This is fun as you don't know what you get unless you plan like crazy...  It is helpful to not have too many directional prints especially if they are not cut perfectly in your jelly roll.  You can however cut your own strips from your stash.. Along with a 60 degree ruler.

I hope the ladies enjoy this in class on Saturday. 

Until next time, thanks for visiting, happy stitching
