My goodness what happened to January?
I am still in Texas - will be for several more weeks - but I've been sewing over at my sisters house this past weekend in between trips to local antique shops to poke around.
For my travels to Texas I brought along some long over due unfinished projects to work on - things that had been sitting unfinished for way too long.
This project was started many years ago (maybe 9?? years) after I participated in a year long 5" Fabric Swap at Southampton Quilts - my favorite quilt shop up in Massachusetts. After the swap finished - I had begun this Morning Star Quilt out of the Nickel Quilts book. I had most of the individual components made but had not put anything together to assemble a block... much less 24 blocks. It took me a day of counting and organizing to figure out just where I was in the process... not sure why I never make notes to myself?
I am working on getting the blocks assembled - here are 4 blocks stuck up on the design wall right now. I have the others ready to sew the final seam and then I’ll start putting rows together. I’d really like to put a great big dent in this before I head back over to my folks house tomorrow morning as I don’t think I’ll get to do any sewing while I’m over there. But I’ll be back here at my sisters the next week so there is still lots of time.
