Mother's Delight

Mother's Delight was last week's Grandmother's Choice BOW.  It took some precise drafting, cutting, piecing and pressing.  I was sure it would finish too small, or not square.  It took nearly two hours of sweating!  I reckon the points will get cut off when sashing is added, but finished is good enough.

My star likely looks much heftier than other's block, because I did draft it myself, so the arms of the stars have some extra arm flab. And horizontal stripes are never flattering, are they?


  1. love these blocks and the fabrics you are using. so pretty.

  2. Extra arm flab! Love it! Well, actually, hate it on me. But the block looks great!
