I did finish week 5 of the Star Quilt Along. I think these are turning out pretty well. It is nice to work on them week by week (never mind that I am about 7 weeks behind) and really concentrate on those points and triangles.And I made this cute dress from a pattern I bought on YCMT. I think it is called the Faith dress. Easy and quick. It's for my husband's niece and it should fit her for quite a while.
Oh, and here is something great that I received in the mail from the June mini quilt swap. Ulla made it and it is so beautiful. It's hard to tell from my picture (skill I must improve), but she hand stitched stars on the yellow star and all over the inner blue. Each time I look at it, I think of the summer sky at night. The two mini quilts I have received have been so creative. Such a joy to share quilts with these great group members.We've got some qt (quality time) family time coming up for a little over a week. Just realized I should have brought my machine in to be serviced since I won't be using it! Oh well. My mother in law told me she once went for about 10 years without getting hers serviced, so mine should be okay. I keep thinking I should give my machine a name, but I'm still trying to figure out her personality. Yep, definitely a she.
Happy 4th to everyone here in the US of A . Enjoy your many freedoms and remember what a tumultuous, exciting, fearful, yet hopeful time it must have been during the Declaration of Independence. Do ya think there's really a watermark map on the back of that thing (National Treasure reference)???? hahahaha.
