Star BOM #5
I finished my fifth Star Block of the Month today. It's a perfect day for sewing: rainy and cold! Overall, the block turned out great. I would have liked a different inner background color, but everything I auditioned didn't look right and I figured that it wouldn't hurt to use this fabric here, because it was in Block #1. It'll probably be fine when the entire quilt is done and I'm just being a little to picky right now.
Here is a picture of the corner trimmer that I've been using on this project. It has been a fantastic help lining the pieces up. Also in the picture is a little cutter tool that I got a few weeks ago at a fabric estate sale. It was brand new/in package and was only a quarter! It cuts the little snips off the corners a lot easier than the rotary cutter and I'm thrilled to have it in my toolbox.
