Emily's Stars Top Finished!!


This morning I finished up the top of Emily's Stars from the pattern on Quiltville! I only made it half as big as the pattern called for since it will be a Project Linus quilt and I try to keep them around 45" wide for quilting purposes. -- That's how wide my batting is--simple reason, huh!!!!

This was a fun quilt to make and I really tried to use up stashm but my favorite quilte store, Quilt Mercantile, was having a big sale on 1930's repros so I stocked up and used some of those for this quilt!! Now I have lots of '30's stash for more quilts!!! Have to think up more to do. What are some good '30'3 patterns that come to your mind? Of course there's always Dresden Plate, but I already done one of those and my DD has that. I could always do another one, for it was fun to do, especially with Debby Kratovil's directions ! Guess I'll have to think on that for awhile.

Right now I need to do the Project Linus ones I have cut out and waiting, plus the Thimbleberries BOM and the Forever flowers Block #5 and sew the bindings on the 2 quilts waiting in the wings. Repeating myself aren't I--just trying to remind me what I need to do. I need to make a list just like Santa!!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Very sweet! You did a great job. I had to laugh at you listing all of your to-do items... I thought I was the only one that had that problem.
