I made a whole bunch of 8" star blocks, as leaders and enders while making the Valiant Eagle. Then I thought those were so fun to make, so I made a bunch of 6" stars! While making the Wonky Roses, I made 3.5 inch 4-patches for L&E. I had about 200 of those by the time I was done with the Wonky roses!! What to do, What to do! I know! I'll put 'em all together and come up with something new! Well...maybe not new, but different!
So here is the beginnings of a Double Four-Patch and Stars quilt top! I ran out of small stars, because it takes two of them in the 12" block I'm doing with them, so now I need to make about 12 more. And I wanted to alternate it with the 8" star block-I had to use 1" spacers to make the 3.5 inch 4-patches play well together and make a 12" block of them.. Anyway-I have another really scrappy and fun quilt going now! These are great to work on during my work week, since they are just fun and I'm not all that precise with them!!!
Ok, now Here is my closet with my quilt tops wating to be quilted! ARRGGG! I make quilt tops much faster than I get them quilted! About halfway across where the pink quilt is hanging and a little before, are tops I have done this year! I've been on a scrappy quilt top making binge this year! As Jim Carey in the "Mask" says-"Shomebody Shtop Me!" Do I hire a longarmer to help? I don't know! I sent some out to various members of Heartstrings earlier this year! But these are ones I want to finish myself! I just need to focus on quilting for awhile!
Hope your days are full of quilting joy!
