Yesterday, as I was coming downstairs, I took a peek into the guest room, which doubles as the place where extra blankets and pillows are kept, and (tripled?) as the staging area for the daughter's moving. The star on the Macy's bag fits right in with the star pillows and quilt. The pillows makes the stars with diamonds, and the quilt uses Jan Mullens starz technique.
Then I came down the stars. The swap quilt is at the landing. This star is made with log cabins. It is curled because I had temporarily placed it there using pins, and just haven't gotten around to properly mount it.
Then I turn and walk into the living room. I like to have cool quilts to offset the heat of the summer and bright warm quilts to offset the dreariness of winter. If I remember correctly, I was sick of flying geese stars when I made this quilt.
Finally, this is on my sewing table. I am finished with the 28 white stars needed for my queen size quilt. I think I am mostly sick of these because I am having trouble with them. I am not sure whether the cutting directions are wrong, or if I am piecing them wrong, or if I haven't read the directions properly, or if it is a matter of switching rulers and using so many different fabrics, but I had to trim a lot of the flying geese. I figured that out after I had already sewed on the sides, and tried to make them fit into the center square. That's all done now, thank goodness. I have to take 8 of these and add a star around them.
Then I have to make 28 blue stars. By the time I get to them though I will be an expert at making stars, and they will go much more smoothly. Right? Right?
