    I'd been saving my left over pieces of Lemoyne Stars for a while and wanted to see how a split setting would look...really liked the way it turned out :)

    I reversed the lights and darks to get this effect. In a small picture, this one looks like the light background is melting!

    That's a beauty. You can just see all kinds of things in the stars if you really look.

    Because I do so many stacked quilt tops, my scraps often have novelty prints in them :)

    I have seen many beautiful quilts of yours lately. Over what period of time did you do these?

    Well, I retired about ten years ago, so most are from then on. I generally do a quilt top every three to seven days, depending on how much piecing there is to it.

    What do you do with all these quilt tops? I can tell you enjoy making them.

    Mostly, I sell them on my website and you're right, I do really enjoy making them. This is my retirement hobby and I'm very grateful for it :)

    Thanks! I love scrappy as well. I don't know if it's because of the color or because it's making something from "scratch" so to speak, but I do love them :)
