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' .....so 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!
