Slow Stitching Stars & Triangles

This week’s slow stitching will involve adding some background pieces to this star (which, when completed, will be number 33). I also intend turning the black and white fabric into as many triangles as possible so I can work out how many more stars to make. I am sure there is a more scientific and mathematical approach I could take but I’m more of a lay-it-all-out-and-see-what-fits kind of girl 🙂

Slow Stitching 13 December

Do pop over to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching link up to see a gorgeous array of quilting, applique, cross stitch and embroidery. And then on to Life Under Quilts to see what other EPPers are up to.

    I take the same approach as you… Your background fabric is perfect for your bright stars . Have fun stitching today.

  2. Kaja says:

    A woman after my own heart: the very idea of quilt maths just makes my head hurt.

  3. CathieJ says:

    Another pretty star. I am a mathematician and even I find myself laying everything out rather than calculating.

  4. Great background choice!

  5. Kate says:

    Enjoy your slow stitching. Sometimes you just have to lay it out and see.

  6. I’m a lay-it-all-out-and-see-what-fits kind of girl too!
    Enjoy your stitching!

    I’d rather lay it out than figure it out on graph paper or use math–good call!

  8. Donna Minter says:

    Seems most of us trust laying it out as opposed to figuring mathematically I think we are just visual people. Enjoy your day..

  9. Cathy says:

    I’m the same kind of gal you are! I love your background choice.

  10. Julierose says:

    Love your star–and that background is perfect–looks like a galaxy–very pretty…hugs, Julierose

  11. Stephie says:

    I’m with you on the ‘no maths’ method – so boring and it makes my brain ache! It’s much more fun to lay it all out isn’t it? Love the way your stars are coming along 🙂

  12. Deb says:

    I agree with Julierose – you have a beautiful galaxy in the making.
