Midnight Stars Quiltalong
I just couldn't wait for step 5 of Lori's Midnight Stars Quiltalong. After putting together the Ohio Star blocks, I just kept going. I love how it turned out. The flying geese units were not your typical dimensions. Thanks, Lori, for drafting this block and making it, what - 3 times to get it just right? Any smaller and I would have been cursing - any larger and they wouldn't be so cute. Great job!
I took a basic binding class with Kathy at The Quilt Patch yesterday. Recently, I haven't been happy with how my corners look. She showed us a way I think I've seen before but haven't tried and they turned out beautifully. Glad to have a new trick. I also gave Kathy my snowball/9-patch for quilting (she works magic) and will get it back within the next month so I can get it photographed for submission into the Quilters Unlimited Quilt Show in June. Yay!
