I finished piecing this top today and the realization hit me square in the face---I cannot finish this quilt for Christmas. So I have left my sewing room and chilled this afternoon. I had a cup of coffee, made my grocery list for the family Christmas get together and I'll start planning my quilting tomorrow!
This is a paper pieced pattern by Judy Neimeyer called Hawaiian Star. The colors are more brilliant than the photo and I am pretty happy with it even though I must work on the skills to do Y seams better.
