Here are my 4 completed candle holders. Too bad we can't eat in the dark!

This is my latest hand-piecing project. It will be a very long and slow process, but I wanted to document it for myself for the future. I started by cutting up one brown and one cream (for alternate squares). I have used 2 pinks so far. As I come across pieces large enough (5-1/2" square) of the creams for the alternate squares, I will add them to the pile.
These are LeMoyne stars. I am making them all brown and pink with one cream background per block. If history repeats itself, I will have many fabrics represented by the time this is a finished quilt top. I am thinking of making a bed-sized quilt and quilting it by hand, so look for the finish in about 14 years. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the hand piecing.
Here's another Pinterest-inspired project that was more difficult than it should have been. But now that I have some experience under my belt, I'm rolling along and nearly finished.
