"Votes For Women" Wednesday

More progress to report on my Votes for Women sampler project...

I had a great time hand piecing block #29 called "Seven Point Star for Australia". The centre isn't exactly perfect (LOL!) but I am very proud to point out that I (fairly) successfully sewed 7 set-in seams for this block! 
And it lays flat!
Yah me!




Block #30 is called "Broad Arrow". I didn't like the look of one arrow, so I wanted to sew two arrows in one block, but it was a bit tricky to figure out mathematically. I added a border around the arrows to bring it up to size.

Onto the next block...

  1. Great job on the blocks. How did you applique down the star or did you piece the background in parts? I still need to get mine onto a background somehow.

  2. You're a brave woman for doing the seven-pointed star. I chickened out and replaced it with a different block. Good job Kathy!

  6. Great job on that star! And I wish I had thought to do what you did with that broad arrow block. I did the big one and find it really stands out in all the other blocks,
