We are doing it in sets of 8 which makes a neat larger 12 inch block. I've done 3 sets but think I will do one more. As I've been playing around on the design wall and have come up with this design. First I had the blocks arranged into six stars.
Then rearranged them leaving a border and with one more set plus about 4 extra blocks I could have the partial stars all around the border and then put a large border . I want to use this as a table topper. I have been using the smaller quilts that I didn't know what else to use them for, on the dining room table. Well it's in the kitchen and is the only table we have. This is such a fun block and you can use up your scraps. Ever since Bonnie has been talking about cutting strips of the leftovers, I've done this with both my regular scraps and my TB. Separated them of course.
Today turned out to be such a wonderful warm winter day, and have you noticed that the days are getting a little longer. Still light at five when we eat. I went to town this afternoon to the Credit Union to get the money for my new car. But came home empty handed. Their system was down and couldn't get into the accounts. What's up I thought our money was safe. She will have a check ready for me in the morning. Will just have to make sure the people don't go running to the bank for a couple hours to give me time to deposit it here in Boonsboro.
So hopefully tomorrow at this time I will have a new car. This is the first time that I alone have taken care of the buying. Now Hubby was only interested in whether or not he could get in and out of it and that it had a handle above the door for him to hold on to. He just doesn't trust my driving.
It's time this evening to get busy and start another snowflake. Need to get these done before the hope of snow is gone. Thanks again to all left a comment on yesterdays blog. I just felt I wanted you all to know what a milestone we have passed.
