This online community of quilters is truly amazing, filled with brilliant suggestions. I'm thankful we aren't afraid to suggest ideas, tips and the like to each other!
Angela's afterthought comment from my last post was extremely helpful. With a little rearranging, a little ripping, and a sewing/scrap frenzy of piecing another 12 blocks... the scattering of the gold stars became an intentional design layout.
The center is now a 7x9 layout, rather than a 7x8 as I mentioned yesterday. 7x8 wasn't enough of the 'golden ratio' for me :D
Celtic Solstice has taken over my leader-ender project as I've been working on Berquist Beauty and now Star Struck. Another 20 blocks in the making here.... all L/E.
And the 20 blocks on the stool here were all L/E'd when working solely on Berquist Beauty. Bonnie hit the jackpot with the L/E idea! No doubt!
BTW. We received the call from the school district last night at 8:30 announcing the closing of school for the day due to extreme cold weather. After watching news this AM, I can't see how the school CAN'T make the same call for tomorrow since tomorrow is expected to be even colder. Crazy cold weather this year for much of the nation, that's for sure.
It's hard to believe it's THAT cold out when the house is a ROASTING 85 degrees!!!!!! Between the wood furnace AND the extremely deceiving sunshine, the girls and I have elected to change into some shorts! LOL.
#2 and #3 are playing the Wii; #1 is wasting time "researching" on YouTube. LOL.
I just came upstairs from piecing the center of Star Struck. I'll throw together a light lunch since Paul made a yummiful brunch for all of us at 10:00, and enjoy some down-time looking through Bonnie's patterns to find a border treatment.
The school's band is having a Cabaret Concert at the end of February and the director is asking around to local businesses for raffle items (I just caught up on school email where he was filling the band parents in the latest happenings.) So..... ...... I haven't said anything yet, but I'm thinking I COULD get this quilt done by then and donate it to the band if he is interested.
Just thinking aloud right now.
