Progress report

I decided to make four of these fun little 9" blocks for the guild presentation block for the month.  The presenter is expecting her first great grandson.  These were fun to make.  This is one of my favorite easy stars.

This is what I have on the design wall now.  I finished all the blocks for the wedding quilt.  It is very visually stimulating with nowhere to rest your eye.  I think I will put black sashing to help break up all the excitement in the squares.  The really light squares have a line drawing floral motif.  It is not so strikingly different as it looks in this photo.  Black and white and green.  Who knew?
Tomorrow, I have a play date with a quilting friend.  I am going to work on doing inset circles. 
Have a wonderful evening.
Joyful quilting, everyone.

Oh, oh, oh... just found out a coworker is expecting a baby in December... love those stars with the animal prints in the middle! I have AN IDEA!

Love the green, black and white quilt... it's gorgeous!

Love the star block.

I think a black inner border is just what your quilt needs. It is going to be a wonderful quilt.
