Star quilt

Well, of course I'm still waiting for my order of turquoise fabric to arrive. You might think, why doesn't she just go to the fabric store instead? But it's too far for me to drive there. I have to wait for a special lift to the store. Besides, they give free shipping! Meanwhile, I thought that I would post a couple of photos of my method for putting the quilt together. I made a diagram on graph paper. Then I letter the blocks across, and number them down the side. As I sew each row together, I make a label for the row on a bit of paper and safety pin the label to the corner. that's how I keep the pattern straight while joining blocks together.
