On the weekend I decided to tackle piecing the Starburst top. As complicated as the pattern looks, it's actually not that difficult to construct. It's really just the same placement of 16 HSTs, repeated four times, with each quadrant turned a different way.
I always get in trouble once it's time to start piecing all my blocks together, so I thought sewing one quadrant at a time would be ideal to keep me on track.
This quilt does have a deadline, but it's not for many months, so I have time to take my time on it.
And a question for you quilters out there:
Do you press your seams to one side, or open them. When I was taught to quilt, it was ALWAYS press them open. But when I got back into it, I noticed that Jenny of MSQ presses hers to the side. I like doing that because it's much quicker... but I find on something like this, with a lot of triangles coming together, it can make the intersections super bulky.
Anyway, only three more quadrants to go, and this top will be well on its way to completion. I considered doing a second one right away...
