Not a New Project?

 I know I said I wasn't starting anything, but...


My quilt group will be having a display of miniature quilts at a hotel in Ballarat in April. Quilts have to be 40cm square. I don't have anything that size, so need to get sewing!

I hope I am not being too ambitious, but this is my starting point:

Design 3734.6 in Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns. I printed it from Blockbase, and have had it pinned up on my noticeboard since 27th November, if you can read the small print on the next photo:
Yesterday I went to a sit and sew day and made the first two stars, just as a test. I think it will work, although I'm not looking at the diamond circle border just yet...
A few more diamond stars prepped. I need to decide on a background soon.

This is amazing! If it has been printed on your noticeboard since November, it’s not a new project!

It's a great project. I like to sew small tablecloths.

Wow! Seven sisters, a great choice for the exhibition. Being a portable project it will be easy to do a bit every day.
Are they eggs on the centre star?
