If you have spent any time with me, you will know that blue is my favorite color. Therefore, while I am working at figuring out what is next in my life, I decided that I would start to use some of the blues to make a string quilt with a white center star. I am just playing at the moment, but this does feel like what I want to make. This is a foundation pieced approach similar to some seen on Mary's website and on several others. The squares are 9" finished. I am intending to make this be large enough for a queen size bed and use little weight, "fluffy" batting that we are now carrying in the quilt shop. I have lats of other quilt projects underway, so this is not something you will see finished for some time to come, but I am planning to make 144 blocks so that I will have 6 stars across and down. I am not planning on a border, but will probably have a little wider binding and a backing of what else but blue. Therefore, whenever I just need to touch fabric but don't want to have all the stress of being "perfect, I will work on this.
After being away for 31 years, we are finally home again. We are South Dakotans through and through, so this is were we want to spend our "retirement" years. My husband and I are getting ready to open a custom woodworking business with me being the paper pusher and the woodworker's apprentice. Along with that I am going to continue quilting and also work as a substitute teacher. Life is good!
