Stars

I spent Wednesday making stars, and then made a few more yesterday after babysitting Joseph. I'm cutting them out a few at a time and then sewing them - easier on my back than standing to cut them out all at once. Besides, I don't have enough table space for that many stars. I've just slapped them up on the design board - they aren't sewn together and aren't in their final arrangement either. I'm going to make a few extra so I can pick and choose. I'm not sure I like the star with the bright lime green star points- even though Eileen OK'd all of my fabrics the green stands out more than anything else in the entire quilt. So that block may be added to the orphan drawer. These stars are fun to make and go very quickly. I'm really motivated to finish this flimsy because I'm not going to allow myself to do any more Civil War Diary or Dear Jane blocks until I finish this monster!

Hi Patti. It's been a while, but I've finally had a chance to have a look at your blog again. Wow! You have been busy. So many CC quilts and lots of gorgeous CW & BJ blocks.
What a wonderful 'monster' you're working on too.

The stars look great! Use the green one as it will add interest to the whole thing.
