Starstruck Again ... or not!

In my 'big scheme' of quilts, this one is taking FOREVER to put together. The middle has been assembled, but I had to put it aside for various reasons.

I've just taken it out to attach the pieced border, and discovered that I have neglected to make four of the quarter blocks that go in the corners. So, tonite I'll make up some more blocks, and if I'm really good, I'll be able to attach the border.

Or, you'll be reading about it again in a couple of weeks :-)

Today was the last day of the school term for the kids - and because I don't work in school holidays, the kids and I have two weeks off! I have great plans of getting things done, and my Mum is taking the kids for a mini-break to the beach too. I'm very excited to have lots of free days to spend with the tiny people.

Have a great time with the tiny people. I love the star quilt. Hopefully the corners won't take very long and you'll be able to finish it.

I've saved your "Starstruck" as "NEW" with the alternate blocks in light blue, which I thought was PERFECT, but the darker blue is MORE perfect! This is going to be gorgeous!

I've also SAVED as NEW your little scrappy 9 patch - again - it's just lovely and I MUST make one. Thanks for the eye candy.

Lovely quilt! Stars have to be one of my favorites. And taking time off at the beach is another. Enjoy!
