Ahhhh! Saturday morning! Too bad hubby can never seem to sleep later than 7 am. So he is dressed and waiting for our friend to show up to work on the spec house next door. Wandering aimlessly through the house. I tell him "You can hang up my little curtain rod in my sewing room, if you need something to do." So he does! Now I can hang some of my cute little quilts right over my sewing table.
The quilt there right now is actually more of a wall hanging - how appropriate! I started making these stars blocks out of Sally Schneider's Scrap Frenzy book. She calls these stars "Bard of Avon". I love the stars but they take FOREVER to piece - I would guess maybe an hour and a half each. Much too long for my taste! So the quilt ended after 4 blocks. It makes a cute little wall hanging or table topper. Each block is about 15 inches square. And of course, it is blue and yellow, so what is not to love? When I was quilting this piece, Nina and her mom both tried to convince me that I really DID want to make it into a bigger quilt - but neither one of them bothered to volunteer help piece the stars!
Today I am trying to get as many of the baby quilts quilted as I can. Stacy (DH) made me stop the machine while he was hanging up the curtain rod. He thinks it is way too noisy. I think it just drowns out the rest of the ruckus going on in our house! Kind of peaceful! The kids are going to a b-day party this afternoon so I will have a couple hours of uninterrupted quilting time!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
