Finished blocks 7 and 8 of AmandaJean's Seeing Stars Quilt-a-long. I love the fabrics in these stars. I have 6 of the setting blocks done too, but I'm not sure I want to use them. I have all 8 of the stars on my design wall and I'm really digging them all together. I'm considering making additional stars instead of using the setting blocks. Still noodling on that one!
I got mail this week. In the package was Melissa's fabric for the second month of the Common Threads virtual quilting bee. I adore her fabric choices, a beautiful Alexander Henry print and 4 coordinating solids. You can see her inspiration quilts here. I think she's wanting some curved piecing in this block. Another challenge for me.
We're out in the country for the weekend. I brought some projects since I'm committed to Peg's finishing challenge. I hope to get at least this quilt quilted. I have my pinwheels with me and the cut fabric for Hannah's graduation quilt. I don't know if I'll have time to sew much...I've got weeding, mowing, a room to paint, a ceiling in another room to paint, windows to paint and an ant invasion to deal with...sounds like it might be a painting weekend rather than a sewing weekend. It's hard to let working on the house trump sewing, but I've been putting this off for too long. We'll see what happens, kind of depends on my mood tomorrow. Have a great weekend everyone!
