Good News and Bad News

The Good News is I have decided how I am going to set
my Fussy Cut Friday Stars. The Bad News is I am going to
need 90 stars. I better pick up the pace.
I am going to use the Seven Sisters Setting pictured above.
This is a quilt that was available on eBay. Some lucky bidder
 got a beauty. I will need a total of 13 complete circles
of 6 stars and 4 half circles of 3 stars for a total of 90 stars.
This will make a quilt that finishes approximately 55" x 80"
without borders. I am waiting for the 4" hexagon
Paper Pieces to arrive so I can add the centers.

  5. I like this idea. Do you have any thoughts on how much background fabric would be needed for this setting? Thanks for your input.

  9. I would never had thought to set my stars in his way. Love it and am going to use this setting for my stars also. Dreaming of the type wreaths to quilt in the 4 inch hexies. I don't see an answer for Mary's question: about how much background do you estimate. I always like a double check to my math.
