More English Paper Pieced Stars

I finished sewing the setting diamonds on these stars on the bus trip to and from Paducah.  There's a lot of visiting that goes on during these trips, but during quiet times I always stitch.  

Here are my stars to date.   I still have a lot of these six pointed stars basted and ready to sew.  I'm not sure how many blocks there will be in this quilt.  I am just really enjoying the fussy cutting and sewing these stars together.  

Here is my "loot" from the Paducah bus trip.  The grab bags are from the Cherrywood booth.  I wasn't quite sure what I would do with these, but someone said applique' I bought two!  The Petra Prins/An Moonen book is just full of inspiration just like most of those published by Quiltmania.  

Also while I was on the trip, I did my part to help support the Boy Scouts.  They call this "the works".  They sell this every year in Paducah, and it includes a piece of shortcake, ice cream, fresh sliced strawberries all topped with whipped cream.  It tasted even better than it looks!  

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

I hope you are finding some time to stitch!
