Luck Stars BOM – Practice Block
As you can see, my points aren’t matching. Elizabeth’s instructions were great! I just have a hard time with all the bulk of fabric that accumulates. Have you had any issues with bulk? I can’t help but think that it’s going to be a mess to quilt over some of those spots? If you’ve had experience doing this – do you just skip those spots when quilting or is there a trick? Am I the only one that has all this bulk? Should I be snipping more of the excess fabric? I try to keep it at 1/4″ but sheesh.. it still is really thick. This is the 6.5″ block. I wonder if the bulk will go away when I do the 12.5″ block. I’ll try and let you know how it goes.
Hi there! It’s an interesting star. (And I love your black background here on the blog comment window – how’d you DO THAT?) 🙂
There are a ton of small bulky areas on my Dear Jane blocks, so there’s no way I’ll be hand quilting that sucker. I’m just planning on going slow and careful when I get to those areas. Hopefully somebody who’s already got experience quilting such spots will comment.
Thanks Lynette! I wish I could take credit for the black background but it just is that way with this template! 🙂
I guess the bulk is normal. /sigh. Oh well – slow and careful it is! 🙂
