Anyhoo...it's together. It measures 16.5", the tiniest stars being 3/4". Overall, it's larger than most of my Miniatures, but those tiny Ohio Stars intrigued me so I had to give it a try. I must admit, they were challenging as they are NOT paper-pieced. Working with 3/4" pieces is not the easiest... I used an awl a fair bit. I found I often had to press seams open rather than to one side to get things to lie reasonably flat and line up. I did a LOT of basting- almost every seam juncture when putting blocks and rows together...
There is one little star I'm not 100% happy with, may take it out and re-do.... They have to be so precise- being off just one or two threads makes a big difference when working this size... Actually none of them are as perfect as I would like. However I finally had to slap myself and say "Get on with it. It's acceptable. Not perfect, but acceptable."
So here it is. Together. For now... It will be my entry for the Invitational Show at Quilt Canada 2010 in Calgary. (Because I am the N.B. Rep for CQA, I am included in this Show.)
Any suggestions for a name?
