I have been sewing like a demon this week. I have spent hours in my sewing room and having a ball.
I love making these stars and today I was visiting Marit's blog and saw these cross blocks. I think they really complement the stars. They are easy to make but have a big impact. Visit her blog and look at the great things she has done.
I love the way these are turning out.
I also made some Broken Dishes blocks. I love the ways you can put these together.
I am disappointed in this picture. They look much better in person, more impact. I might use them for a border or to fill in spots.
One of my favorite little stars. I am experimenting with using rectangles rather than squares for the stars. Gwen Marston has some examples in her Liberated Quiltmaking II book.
I am using mostly scraps for all the stars I have made. Fun to use them up.
My sweet Gus. We have a big bad summer thunderstorm coming and he does not like storms. He really does not like the thunder.
I am making parts and my aunt and I are going to put her parts and mine together for a couple of quilts. I am planning some sawtooth and some spiky sawtooth border.
We are expecting temps in the high 90s, maybe even 100 this week. I am staying in and sewing!!
