Well, here is quilt #6, with only 6 more to go for the year. I was at a quilting weekend, this past March, where they had The Bargain Barn, where women bring sewing items that they want to clean out of their sewing room and I found a ziploc bag which had the stars all cut for 20 blocks, and scraps of that fabric, and the green fabric, uncut and it cost me $5. I had to buy the red fabric and white fleece for the backing. The Y seams of the stars were a little scary, but after playing with the pieces, I figured out a rhythm and they came out just fine for me. I put the word MY in parenthesis in the title, because I am telling my 3 daughters that it is mine, but come Christmas time, I will draw out one of their names and it will go home with them. I love to surprise them, and I sure can't hide it from them, when they stop in often and see what I am sewing. Hopefully, God will forgive me this little white lie. It measures 60x72. I used gold thread on the front, which blended well with the gold in the fabric and red thread on the white fleece of the backing. Happy with how it turned out.Enjoy looking and wish me luck, getting the next 6 done before the end of the year. My goal is 1 a month, and so far, so good, but summer is hard, with all the yard work.
Happy Father's Day to all the men out there.
