Starry Weekend

It rained all day yesterday, so I decided to pull out my six pointed stars and start sewing the diamonds around the outside.  I like this setting so far.  I was going to put 2 inch hexagons (probably all in an off white) in between each of the stars, but I like the secondary "cube" design that happens where 3 of the stars meet.  I still have some stars fussy cut that will probably end up in this quilt.  I hate to see this project come to an end because I really enjoy English paper piecing these blocks.  Each diamond is 2".

Here are a couple of stars that I finished last time I worked on this project.  I think I got one of the petals on the blue feathery star flipped, but it will blend in with the rest.

I've also been making a few more 3" nine patches.  I was in a nine patch swap a few years ago and haven't done anything with those blocks, so I'm making a few more to add to those.

I hope you are finding some time to spend in your sewing room this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
