Star Happy

This evening I have made a tiny start on the 'Star Happy' quilt Linda and I will be making together. Not much progress so far, but I have done a lot of the cutting. This project will use a great many 6.5", 3.5" and 2" squares and strips, so I've plundered the scrap boxes already. It was fun to do a little piecing of my own, so I will look forward to when I have a chance to do some more work on it.

Next on my agenda for today is to pack lunches etc for tomorrow, and then I'll hopefully still have time to pin a quilt for tomorrow morning. It's 'all quilting - all the time' here!

And on the kitty front, Gracie is just fine after her 'little procedure', and though the vet suggested we need to keep her quiet and not bouncing around too much, we haven't been able to achieve it. Better run ... TTYL :-)

I have always liked this star pattern by Judy Martin but have not made it. It's been in my quilt book/pattern library for a good while. I'm sure you will enjoy making it.

Great pattern!! Can't wait to see it finished. It does look like it would be a perfect pattern for scraps.

Love star quilts. Shouldn't vets know better than to think you could keep a kitten quiet?! Gracie looks like my old cat Sasha!

I love that book - so many beautiful quilts in it. Your fabric choices are wonderful. It is going to be a lovely quilt.

I love that book, too. I made a quilt for my daughter (pre-birth) with lime green for the background of all the stars.

I love these blocks and the fabrics. I've just about decided that my next star quilt will be wonky stars but a sawtooth star is still in the running.

I am just about to start on my Star Happy, too. I finally figured out what to do with some of my fabric, yeah!
