Ohhhhh, that’s a nice block.  What that one called?

hey..that sounds like something I would do...

Farmhouse stars from Connecting threads.   I really liked the secondary pattern of the square in the corners created when the blocks are put together.  I ordered the pattern but I didn't like how they pieced it.  The entire thing is HST.  even the center square in a square & the flying geese pieces.  hmmmph.  I guess that's easier for a beginner to piece, but good grief, all those seams!  So I drew it out myself and pieced it the way I wanted - center square in a square with flying geese on the sides.  The only part that I didn't love is matching that point where the center square in a square & the outside flying geese come together.  There was no way to get that to play nicely without pressing the seams open so that's what I did.  And steamed them and used a wooden plank to get them to lay flat.

Another lovely quilt! I think I remember when you showed us how you  refigured the pattern.  How big is each block? Lucky couple to get one of your quilts.

I finally got some of my many tops quilted and these are a few of them.. I offered to provide a few for a fund raiser for our church camp so that provided the incentive to get s few quilted and finished.

I swear your clothesline must get very excited when it sees you coming with a laundry basket full of quilts to hang for "photo day"!  smile 

Clothesline just hangs around moping and pouting and wondering when the next glorious batch of goodies will show up.

That's a very handsome batch of quilts you have finished; your church is lucky to have your donations.

Thanks, Judy!  Photo ops are the only time my clothesline gets used any more.  I used to hang out all laundry to dry but I no longer have the desire or energy to haul a heavy basket of wet laundry up from the basement.  So much for going "green".
