Tiny Tuesday - Liberty Star

 This is Midget Block number 62.  It is called Liberty Star and was paper pieced with 32 pieces.  After paper piecing the little star points, I had to set in the background pieces, Wow, that was not fun.  I have definitely decided that it is just easier and better to do set-in seams by hand.  Lesson learned for next time.  Still, after a couple of tries and a few trips to the ironing board, it kind of lays flat, so that is good enough for me. 
Lizzie is my quilt block holder for the dead of night. I'm having my own little midnight midget  marathon and she is good company while the rest of the house snoozes away.

Great block. I think your idea to combine machine and hand sewing is good... I frequently "hybrid" sew. It works.
Love your block-model... too cute!
