Working on Wednesday...

We got our first significant snow of year today. It made the morning commute a nightmare for lots of people but I didn't have to go out till the afternoon and by that time the streets weren't bad. And I had time today to sew...ta dah!!

 

Sixteen Double Square Star blocks with little sawtooth star cornerstones... I am very happy with these!  Then I want to add a couple of little borders and then a large border of that large floral on the yellow background. I think it will be a very pretty quilt when I get it done. The pattern is from Missouri Star and you can see the video here. While the fabric an older collection, Curio by Basic Grey... I love the vintage look of these fabrics...larger florals...typography...little lacy prints... very feminine. Not my usual fabric choice but fun to work with...




I want to get the rows sewn together, so I can share the top with my friends at dinner tomorrow night. Show and Tell is always fun!

Well tomorrow has it's fair share of running around and the weather forecast for Friday ranges from Snowmaggedon to a dusting to maybe rain... hope they make up their mind by tomorrow night so I can plan my Friday. I wouldn't mind another day to sew but my son wants to have his best friend over and that depends on the weather and the roads... we shall see.

I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday and belatedly linking up with Patchwork Times Design Wall Monday.

happy stitching-
