blast it all!



Well, I finally, finally! finished my paper pieced stars.

My happy dance was short-lived though,
because I 
put a hole in the center of one of my stars
less than 2 minutes after I finished pressing the final block.

Those center seams are quite bulky
so I decided
since I do not yet have a clapper
(ahem)
that I would use my jewelry block and hammer
and hammer the center seam.
I wondered, briefly, if maybe I ought to use a cloth between my quilt block and my hammer.
For reasons I can not explain,
I didn't find it necessary.


~sigh~

I'm mulling over how to fix it.
I do not, I repeat, do not want to make another block.


suggestions gratefully accepted...

Oh, this is not fun. My suggestions, a little bit of embroidery or fancy stitching over the hole or a pretty button. After all, no one but you will know this was not what you intended all along! Good luck.

I have had a hole before in fabric and I use some No Sew glue which works pretty dang good:)

It is a gorgeous block.

Try to Applique a dot from your fabric over the hole.
Good luck!
