Loose Threads: Making Six Pointed Stars

Making Six Pointed Stars

I didn't realize it had been so long since my last post until I had a nice email from one of my readers.  Things are going ok here; I've just been busy.  I also had to take a long day and clean up my sewing room after finishing my Rotherfield Greys quilt.  I had really pulled out lots and lots of fabrics.

I'm back to making six pointed stars again.  I have had these stars cut out and glued to the papers for so long that I don't remember what most of the fabrics are.  The bottom left star is Amelia by Jo Morton.



I've been thinking a lot about setting ideas for these stars.  This is one of my ideas.  I like that it makes a hexagon!


Here are a few more that I've done.  


When I sit at the machine to sew, I have been working on some little nine patches that will finish at 3 inches.  Right now there is no plan for them.  I have a lot of projects to work on.  I just need to pick something and get busy.  



It is beginning to look and feel a lot like fall here in the Midwest, and it is great to be outside. Until next time...........

I hope you are all finding some time to stitch!

Thanks for visiting!

My favorite star in this batch is the one in the upper left of the first photo. Sort of feathery looking design in it.
Good seeing a post from you.

Love your stars. Have missed your blog. I too have not been able to update my blog, but this last week I did and yesterday I finished Globetrotting from Pat Sloan. I can now get to Di Ford's. Love your Di Ford Rotherfield Grey.
I have the book Primarily Quilts and love each and every one along with the Quiltmania Mystery 2014.

Blogs are a great way to share our passion and work.
Keep on with the great work.
