WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

carpenter star #2

I got a second star block made.

I spent a rainy Tuesday sewing all day long. I made a giant star.

Most of the fabric in this is vintage. It came out of a metal can that was in my grandmother’s attic. Who knows how old it is or what it was supposed to be. I think the yellow flower fabric may have been a curtain project gone wrong.

This is going to be a donation quilt for a PTSD retreat. It is 68 by 72.5 which turns out to be an awkward size to spread out and photograph in my sewing room.
