Welcome to Treadlestitches!
Here's what I've been sewing on my Singer treadle this week--spiky stars.
Two of these are not like the others!
While making the pink spiky stars for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, I ended up making two more in patriotic fabrics for Covered in Love's July-August block drive. (Read more about that HERE.) So with the 4 from last year and 8 more from this year, I made an even dozen. Maybe this will make up for forgetting to mail any last year. Little Buddy and I took them to the post office Friday morning, and sent them on their way to Texas.
These blocks are also easy to make with strips. All the pieces in this 12 in. finished block are cut from 4.5 in. strips. The triangles are cut using the Tri-Recs rulers.
I have been studying antique quilts for years, but I don't think I've ever seen this particular block. It looks like some kind of basket. It also looks like it might be hard to piece.
If you've seen it before, could you let me know in the comments? (By the way, I've turned the photo so I could see the block more clearly. The upside down legs in the background do look a little weird.)
Even though I have lots of quilting that needs to be done, this just seemed to be a good week to cut and piece, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
And in the end, that's what it's all about.
I'm wishing you joy and peace (or piece!) in the week ahead.
Thank you for reading this post!
