I need one more star!
I put together what I had done, which amounted to seven cute little stars. Then I needed to figure out the layout, which was why I was fretting about my graph paper. I knew what I wanted to do, but needed a little help with my placement measurements.
I finally put my hands on some 1/2" graph paper. Then I cut some little 1 1/2" squares of paper to symbolize my 9-patch blocks. Here we go ...
That was easy! Then I moved the little squares one by one and drew in my stars. I also drew in lines where the filler pieces will be.
From here it will be easy to figure out the sizes of the other pieces I will need. I was getting a little concerned about running out of the blue solid, but as it turns out I will have plenty. Now I will sit down and make that eighth star.
I'm planning on using the gold in my border. I hope that I will have enough of that blue floral to use too. Wish me luck!
