Star Quilt





 Here's a simple, cheerful quilt to show you!  It's already long off to it's new new home, but no matter.  

The flying geese blocks that make up the points of the stars had all those little triangle corners that get cut off, so I sewed them together and made the diamonds that go around the outside of the quilt.  Kind of a make work project since they were so tiny and not very accurate!  But I think they make the quilt, so I guess they were worth it!

Since I made my resolution to finish two quilts before I could start a new top, I now am faced with basting and quilting two quilt before I can start another project.  But I've used up my roll of batting so need to order another one!  So maybe I'll just start another top while I wait?....

I'm hoping I'm off to a wobbly start to getting more quilting done.  The last year was a bit lacking in quilting time, but I think I need to work on my efficiency in housework so that I can carve out more time!
