Completed Stars

Stars quilt complete

I never typed this up (or got the photos off of my actual, lovely, non-telephone camera) - I finished the Stars quilt!  Not quite in time for Christmas - I pulled out the pins and trimmed the batting on the way to my parents' house for Christmas morning, and put it in the box with the binding half-attached - but I did finally finish it.

The stars were each echo quilted, and then I stitched in the ditch around all the squares.

Backed with an entertaining Victorian-style flag print from the holidays section at JoAnn's.

I think my mother likes it - and she's put it on the baby whenever she's been napping over there.

Something new

Too much crochet lately for my poor wrists - time to try something new for non-sewing tv time!
