I don't have a photo of the entire block in the antique quilt but it is the partial star you see at the top of this photo (the orange peel or robbing peter to pay paul was the first block I did and it turned out to be easy Because I had already done a small one in a Jo Morton Club that was Appliqued, not pieced!) The star block is a Simple Lemoyne Star made complicated with added triangles between the points..........thought it looked easy but spent too much time fiddling with it and have decided a 3" Lemoyne with those added elements is too awkward-looking. Have to admire those 1840's ladies for their ingenuity tho!
When my granddaughters and their families left after a lovely visit , I was feeling a little down so cheered myself up with making a miniaturized Panama Pyramid from Linda Collins' Facebook sew-along. So far, I have made only one but will begin making more Triangle blocks after the quilt show is over. I just cut apart a diagram of the block from the machine-piecing template package into 4 sections and added seam allowance when I trimmed. Block finishes at 3.25". The diagram on the hand-piecing template set is a bit larger.
Here are some Panama Pyramid sew-along rows and blocks made by my friend, Bonnie......she has a wonderful sense of color and excellent machine-piecing skills!!
And very organized too!!
