Humpty Dumpty!


Grace by Three Sisters is cut and neatly stacked - 978 plus 102 extra pieces. I was admiring the beautiful fabric when this came to mind ... 
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall;
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the King's horses
And all the King's men
Couldn't  put Humpty together again!
 I can put these together again! I think I can! I think I can! I think I can!
I know I can, thanks to my Lucky Stars pattern by Atkinson Designs. 
The 978 pieces quilt has a name thanks to Quilt Sue, Quilt Times. In response to my Freaked Out post of yesterday, Quilt Sue suggested I name this quilt "My Lucky Stars!" Thanks, Sue. Assembly of "My Lucky Stars" will begin once someone - any volunteers? - draws diagonal lines on ALL 336 of the 2.5 x 2.5 star points to be.

Back to Humpty Dumpty ....
 Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall;
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
Threescore men and threescore more,
Can't place Humpty Dumpty as he was before.
 This fabric will never be as it was before!  We will all have to wait and see what it will become. Please stay tuned.

We know what you'll be doing today! Just keep reminding yourself, it's one step closer to sewing it altogether

Psst, she whispers quietly. You don't have to draw diagonals, just fold each square on the diagonal GENTLY press with your fingers and sew 1/4" either side.
