Eileen of Eileen in Stitches put out the call for blocks for a quilt she is making for her grandfather. She asked for blue and neutral blocks with stars as a theme and various possible sizes. I made this eight pointed star block that finishes at 12 1/2". I'll be putting it in the post tomorrow. I hope it works well with the other blocks in your quilt Eileen.
I've also been participating in the Meadow Mist Designs Midnight Mystery Quilt Along. This month we are making square in a square blocks.
There are a couple of finished but untrimmed ones in the photo below along with last months flying geese blocks.
At this point I'm thinking that this quilt is going to look like a big wedding cake, with white and pink icing. We'll see how it progresses. I'm glad that Cheryl is taking this quilt along slowly. I'm not happy as a production quilter so I like to be able to work slowly on this around the other projects I am working on.
I'll be linking up late to Let's Bee Social when I return from my business meetings. Life should settle down a little after that and I hope to share more sewing adventures moving in to the fall.
