Greetings from South Texas where it should be March, but think Mother Nature is confused!!! 29 This morning and now just 47, but we have sunshine! Nice day, for staying inside and quilting!
I have been working on the Stars for the middle block of my Feathered Stars. BOY! What a job in cutting, but I have it down pat now! Thank Goodness! Those 1/16″ cuts added to a normal cut is a killer – even with notes!
I will have 4 Blue Stars for the corner blocks, and 4 White Stars for the remainder of the blocks. The first block I made will be my center block. I am going to start making the feather part now for these 4 blocks, then I will make the remaining 3 white stars and make the feathers for them! I am so excited now that I chose this as my next project.
Today, just at the right time, I received the order of fabric from Marsha McCloskey to finish my quilt. I love this fabric made by Clothworks – it is a dream to work with and so soft!
I ordered another piece from Marsha that really grabbed me! It is from Sharon Yentor In The Beginning fabrics called Floral Bouquets and Fancies! Beautiful! The color is a vibrant red – I do not know why it is not showing up as such, but its a beautiful piece to work with on another project!
Time to get back to cutting! I am so glad that I purchased Marsha’s ruler a long-long time ago. It is really a must if you ever make one of her Feathered Stars!
