Stars and 16 patches, for lack of a better name, is finished. I made the top from 2 piles of blocks that happened to be the same size. The 16 patches were leftover from another quilt and the stars were mindless night sewing. I finished the top in Nov. 2013. It is approximately 56" x 70" so a nice size couch quilt.
The backing is an older Phil Jacobs fabric, Ivy. I am so happy I decided on the green binding.
This is where I am on the Trip Around the World. Yesterday I showed 9 vertical rows were sewn. Now there are 29 sewn and 18 to go.
I like the red/pink area a lot.
I received 2 Valentines in the mail this year. The top one is from my great-grandson, age 2.
The second one is from one of my blogging buddies. It is so neat!!
Happy Valentine's Day everyone.
We're expecting a snow storm in the Chicago area today. I hope it doesn't turn out to be a big one. Just one more day until my program for the quilt guild.
For the local people, here is the information:
the Fair City Quilters meeting will be at 7 p.m. on Monday February 15th at
the Federated Church, 403
N. Main St. in Sandwich. Guest fee is $5. The last time I gave a
program for them was 4 years ago so this trunk show will be the quilts I
have made since 2012. I plan on taking at least 75 finished quilts and
