thank goodness you found them before quilting.
The last few days I've been making up some I spy kits while waiting to head to town for batting. Tomorrow I go to Waco to move daughter to a smaller (and cheaper) apartment. Next door. But down stairs then back up again. sigh. I do love her. Anyway, I decided I felt like piecing tonight so I started on this pattern that I saw on FB by Quilting Mama (you may remember she spoke at the AZ retreat a few years ago). She calls the pattern Star Blossom & sells kits of VERY Scrappy fabrics (her passion is scrappy and bright). But I wanted to try it with novelties (since that is what I have most of). At first I wasn't sure about all the different colors. But now that I've got several blocks on the wall, I'm liking it quite a bit.
Here is a screen shot of her kit which shows how the blocks are constructed.
Cute, cute, cute! Another inspiration!
Liking those dilly flowers!
Glad you found those out of place stars before you quilted
Oh... really like how it's turning out!
Wow, that's great! That's how I'd like a kit. Many come really as hunks of fabric, when they say "precut kit" :(

I just contacted her and she's out and doesn't expect to have more. So sad. I really wanted one
Finally got back into my sewing room for a couple hours yesterday and today. I used the time to complete my lotto blocks for the retreat.
One thing checked off my list. Now on to designing and making my door hanger.
I saw when Quilting mama posted that quilt and liked it! Your scrappy one is looking great!
I did not finish as many of my UFOS last year as I had wanted to. Let's just say life happened. I did finish 4 large quilts, my mini quilt and one little bag. I also finished handquilting my oldest UFO a little pillow and just need to sew it into a pillow. I got a good amount done on another large top and hope to get that one done fairly soon.
We are driving back from 10 days skiing and visiting our girls. I am hoping to go thru some bins tomorrow and plan out more UFO completion projects.
Hope everyone has had a good start to the new year.
