I said I needed to make four stars to have another row complete – I was wrong I needed 5 so I needed to trim some ends off and sew another – but now I have enough for 5 rows of the 6 needed for Murrieta Stars. Five more stars to make and then I need to cut a bunch of the yellow flannel for the plain in between blocks. This quilt does finish at about 88 x 92 or something like that so it will be much larger than it looks right now.
All that is left to work with from that big stack of star pieces that I started with — that always feels good doesn’t it! Linking to Confessions of a Fabric Addict — Sew Fresh Quilts — Quilt Fabrication: Midweek Makers — Jo’s Country Junction.
I didn’t work real hard on the hand quilting Monday night – I was just worn out and had that tired out feeling I get from the Reclast IV but yesterday I was back to normal – tired in the morning but by afternoon I was back to normal.
I am reading a good book right now – it is hard to find a good novel sometimes but in this book I found a good read and I guess I was surprised – I have read this author before, sometimes I like her books and sometimes I don’t – the book is Rainwater by Sandra Brown. This one takes place in the depression era in Texas – it centers on a young mother with an autistic son – back then they didn’t call it that of course and didn’t really know what his problem was – the mother runs a boarding house and her story interweaves with her borders and other people in the town.
