{Post 1,257} Vintage Stars all Cleaned Up

Here are the 20 vintage star blocks I was squaring up recently.  The last two blocks had to be completely destructed and reconstructed.  The pink one was nearly an inch too small square.  Oddly enough, the pink triangles were all the right size.  The muslin was also very fragile and thin.  Here is a before and after of that block and all 20 laid out on the design wall.

They are lovely blocks and its nice to see you taking the time to get them right. Out of interest, did you replace the very thin muslin, or re-use it? (I'm guessing that to keep it 'original' you re-used it?)
