I'm making nice progress on this star quilt. The top has been done for probably a couple years, patiently waiting for me to baste and quilt it. It was a $5 quilt block a month my LQS did ages ago.
It then waited for me to go through what I did. Then the happy day came when I was gifted with almost a whole bolt of cotton fabric I could use for backing. I got it basted earlier this month and now am quilting away :cD
Now it has been a while since I have quilted and I do remember the basics, but I have to share this little story...hope you get a giggle out of it.
I joined a challenge posted by an on-line group I belong to where we are going to do a "row by row" quilt. The first block was posted (they are doing 12 inch blocks) but one of my all time favorite quilts uses 6 inch blocks, so I decided that I wanted to do that size instead. Looking at the block it is a 4x4 block so I figured "OK, 1 1/2 inch squared instead of 3 inches." So I cut out the pieces for 3 of the blocks in my first row, then set about sewing the first one together tonight. I ended up with a pretty nice little square....
Well that pretty much sums up most of what's going on here. We did get the furnace fixed and are all nice and cozy again which is awesome considering we're getting more snow. Call me crazy, but I do love it. All white and clean :cD I'm also doing pretty well on the fitness front. Nothing wild and crazy, but doing my best to stick with it. I'm gonna get on my way, and maybe try to get a few more rows done on that sweater :cD Hope you all have a great one. Warmest country wishes!!!
