The 2011 Thumbstall Raffle Quilt top is finished! It’s been a a year of organizing and stressing over color choices, pattern adaptation, distributing blocks, follow-up – but definitely worth it! A group of us got together a couple of weeks ago and put the blocks together.
Unfortunately some of the star point tips were a little short. May shared a tip that helps preserve most of the points. She called it pivoting the point.
The first step is to insert a pin in the star point vertically,
and then eyeball the quarter inch of the facing block.
Then pivot the remaining fabric resulting in a near perfect 1/4 ” seam.
