    The last quilt I hand stitched was Dear Jane and Dear Hannah several years ago. I loved this quilt’s asymmetrical feeling and the various blocks.
    one thing I have learned is not to hand stitch to end of seam like on a machine.

    I have enjoyed this QAL and look forward to continuing.
    Thanks for all your instructions and tips!

      That LeMoyne Star is great. Did you hand stitch it or by machine?

    Finally got back on track with working on this quilt. I re-watched the video of Dee's way of machine piecing the Mayflower block. I was a little skeptical, but it works great! I was pleased with how the blocks came together. I'm not sure why I can't get my whole photo to show in the forum. It's only showing the middle of the three blocks that are in the photo. I did a red, green and gray colorway because I'm doing a Christmas quilt.

      I am behind, but enjoying hand piecing. Normally I find it meditative and relaxing… but the Radiant Star! I have used my seam ripper more on this block that all others so far… but I will persist!

          Sharing my completed project. I worked ahead over the holiday break so I could start the 2023 BOM. This was a great project and I learned much about hand piecing and patience. It's not perfect but I am very happy with the effort. Thanks for a great class, Dee!!

            I absolutely love your version of the quilt. Thank you so much for sharing.

          I don’t really have a favorite block, enjoyed doing them all. Putting them together took a bit, like a puzzle. I do like the blocks extending to the border. I did notice late that one block I assembled wrong so it become my quilt block variation. I have it pinned and ready to hand quilt, but will wait until suggestions are discussed. Used my stash..so win…win.
          Thanks for the guidance on this quilt.So enjoyed the process!
