A star

So I saw this beautiful star on Emma Jean's or Scrapbag's feed and I thought wow that is spectacular, and that's the BACK of the quilt.

So I thought I know I have some scrappy triangles from the Modern Irish Bee from last year I can make a scrappy star.  The scrappy triangles are a crazymom idea. 

So I laid a load of them out on my floor.

And I thought to myself, that is going to be gorgeous!  Next question was how to join them together.  Needless to say I made a pig's ear of it!  I realised looking at Emma Jean's picture a bit closer that I would have to join these triangles in rows, so I got unpicking and sewing.

I managed to get more than half way and then I lost my enthusiasm for it, because it's so fiddly and truth be told I am not sure if I am going the right way about this.  So I will take it out again later in the week and at least get all the rows sewn and then work out how to go from there.  I do know that I have to get the star into a square finish, that's the part I am dreading. 

But I am sure if I face it on a new day I will find my enthusiasm again!
