    Hey,

    I should be getting ready for the move but however, I was on a quilting class today - started to work on my first Buggy Barn quilt ever.
    Here are a couple of samples of the "Ohio Star" blocks. I really enjoyed the pattern, easy once I figured out the idea behind it.

    Hi Nina, Isn't that the weirded way to make a quilt you ever saw? I took a class last year and made the Doggie quilt. What a blast!! I entered mine in our quilt show and won 2nd with Peoples Choice. I love the fabrics you used on your star block.

    Janstar - it definitely is the weirdest way ever but so easy after all. Did you make the doggie quilt with dog houses, and dogs having small bones? It is a gorgeous quilt. One lady on the class was working on that, and it will be my next crazy quilt.

    I chose the fabrics with the 4th of July on my mind - wanted to make something different this year; in addition to new table runner and place mats, of course..... 8) 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays, so I am all about themes for it.

    Yes, I am attaching a picture of the one I made. At the bottom I used furry fabric the colors of my dogs in my avatar and sewed their baby collars and name tags on them.

    It is gorgeous!!!!!!! I love this one, and those baby collars - what a great idea!
    I can't wait to get my Ohio stars finished now, and start the Doggie quilt. I might steal your collar idea though; in fact found our dog's baby collar earlier today when I was organizing some stuff for the move.

    Thanks Nina! When I first started cutting out the fabric and piecing it was so confusing because with most quilts the process is so exact! And this method is anything but exact!! But like I said it was a hoot! Be my guest and use anything you like. It makes your quilt real special. Enjoy!!!!!!

    I had the same "problem" when I started with my stars today. I am so very used to measure everything accurately, and suddenly I can just do "something", and it still works.
    Definitely so much fun!
