OOOPs! and a visitor

The foundation piecing is done, I laid it out on the bedroom floor and it measures approximately 95" wide. I don't remember how big I thought it would be, but definitely not this big. I want it to float and to have room to put a border on it. It will shrink a little with the seams but not a huge amount. I'll go back to the drawing, but that is less than a 1/4 of the finished star. It won't be difficult to down size, I'll just have to remove a few of the half square triangles.
This could have been avoided if a, I had drawn out more of the design and or b, if I had drawn it out in QuiltPro but since Christmas and my new PC, I haven't located the disc.

And in Fliss's bathroom along came this visitor.... He is huge but cannot get out. DH will rescue him and send him to the outside world.


  1. Lots of 8 pointed things in your house these days! Like the first 8 legged picture best...amazing how a bunch of 1/2 square triangle units can be so promising,just on the way they are laid out.

  2. I'm one of those weirdos that loves paper piecing (!) so I'm looking forward to seeing this. Hmm, that is the exact same type of house spider we had in Kent and used to terrify me. DH signed me up for hypnosis at London Zoo - it worked, I can throw them out with a brush and a pan but still can't touch them! But those things are huge aren't they?
