Star Studded Tribute

Two views of my latest flimsy finish. If you have followed me very long, you know my favorite blocks/quilts are stars!! I can say unequivocally that this one tops the list for me! It is my favorite of all the quilts I have ever made!!

"Star Studded" - very evident because of the stars - 121 to be exact!

"Tribute" - a tribute to my Blogger journey and the amazing people who have befriended me!
              - several blogger connections:
                    - Barbara Brackman 2015 BOW
                    - 10 stars made with Barbara Brackman fabrics
                    - 8 stars from a blogger block swap
                    - 25 stars made from fabrics gifted to me by blogger friends!
                    - 120 different fabrics ( yes there is one duplicate star, but the background is different!

Here a few of my favorites!

A great big THANK YOU to each and every one of my blogger friends: you inspire me, encourage me and motivate me to not only be a better quilter, but a better person!

Blessings & Hugs!!!

Quilt Happenings!

Just a quick update to say hello and happy, happy fall! My favorite season! It seems I spend more time outside and less time stitching, but wanted to show a tidbit of what I'm working on!

I haven't been stitching much on Myrtle, but she makes a great place to stack projects!!
On the left: a stack of small quilts basted and ready for FMQ.
In the middle: pieced border for a bed sized quilt that I'm assembling!
On the right: a sneak peak at the baby/toddler quilt for GB#6 due in February. 

Hope this finds each of you enjoying this pleasant season!

Blessings and hugs!
