I Wanna Be a Cowboy Baby…Quilt (Finished Front)

Well, that was easier and harder than I thought. It took a while to figure out what order was the best to sew in, but turning the corners really wasn’t that hard. Of course, everything didn’t turn out nice and pointy in the end. I think I need a real 1/4″ foot and not a line drawn on my normal one!

The best method I found for putting together a five point star block was to sew the top two pieces together, then the bottom three star pieces.

Then I added the borders to those pieces.

Finally sewed the two star pieces to the three star pieces, and added the rest of the borders.

See how that’s totally not square? Yeah, I dunno. That’s why I’m taking a quilt class! The first of many! I was able to get it straighter when adding the sashing and borders, but then I chopped off a bunch of the star points. (The border and the very center are a pink flannel.) Hopefully it will look okay once I quilt a star pattern on it. Maybe?

  1. Either setting your needle position or using a quarter inch foot does help. Also if you cut using a rotary cutter and ruler, make sure blade is straight not angled. I think that is really cute.
