Quilting Fun

While I love the satisfaction of finishing a quilt, it isn't the only way to have fun with quilting. Fun also comes from the great outings with girlfriends, shopping expeditions with Grandma, or just sitting in my "thoughtful spot" chair perusing magazines and books. The thrill of the next project waiting just there on the horizon...

Shout Out!

This goes out to all those participants and faithful followers of the Lone Star Quilt Along. Saturday is our next check-in day, and I hope you all have been busy making great progress on your Lone Star Quilts.

My cyber friend Sue over at Quilt Times will be checking in on our progress too, as she and I trade off hostessing duties each month. Sue, can you believe we are almost into June already??

The pattern I am using is from a 1989 book from Better Homes and Gardens. I started mine in the early 1990s; it's been hiding in a bin for 20 years, until a post from Sue last fall prompted me to dig it out!

Yesterday afternoon, I did a bit of work on my Bursting Star - a variation of the Lone Star - and it was so exciting to see it coming together. I will definitely be ready to 'show off' a bit on Saturday!

So, participants, prepare for some show and tell!! Cheering squad, do your best to encourage us!! We'll see you all on Saturday!

Happy Quilting, Friends!
