    Happy New Year to you all. Nancy, so glad you are making the day special for her and her dad. My birthday is also today and I remember what it was like when it got "shuffled in" with all the other festivities this time of year.
    I cut the fabric I am going to use for Karen's today and hope to be able to do some sewing for it tomorrow.

    I have a favor to ask - Do any of you ladies have embroidery machines?

    I would love to replace the plain white circle in the center of my top (when it comes home) with an embroidered dragonfly.

    Opinions please - is this too "simple" for my round?
    I am trying to bring the "star" from the center back into the quilt and the blue fabric just seemed to do it without needing other embellishment.
    Please be honest - I have not sewn it yet so I can still make changes.

    Looks perfect. It does seem to make the center pop!

    Paula, I think it looks great!! You should maybe just place 1 cutout star on the border just to see how you like it. I really love the fabric.

    And, Happy Be-lated Birthday!! I hope you had a special day.

    Paula; I think your choice looks good! I would also try laying the stars on the border and just see what they may or may not add. Happy Birthday!

    Thank you for the Birthday wishes.
    I should have posted this pic with the others. I am not sure that these stars really add anything.
    Should I try to find a different star shape - maybe and 8 point like the center?

    Note: the stars shown are rough cut for applique - I would trim them to true points for the final sewing.

    Paula, I like the stars on the corners. Not all over the border. I love the red polka dot border you added.

    I have a simple embroidery machine. I could probably play around with a dragonfly that you can add when it's my turn to work on your center. I get you top last. (I think Tam Moo might have one also. But, I could be wrong.)
