I have had this fabric tucked away for a couple years just waiting for the perfect project. I decided I wanted to make something special for the kindergarten teacher at the school the kiddos go to. We have had the benefit of her teaching our children for a total of four years and I felt a quilt was just the thing. I have admired the pinwheel sampler that Rachel of PS I Quilt did a couple years ago and think that is what I will do with this fabric.
I have been working on these star blocks from AmandaJean of Crazy Mom Quilts, "Star Quilt Along" over the last couple weeks when time allows. Today I was able to get the last two completed and am ready to move on to the setting blocks. I am not totally loving it but hopefully once the setting blocks are done and ready to attach it will come together the way I had envisioned.
My cousin John and his wife just welcomed their first baby, a boy. I started this afghan for them back in January and worked on it when I had a free moment. Well, two weeks ago I finished all other "hand work" projects and was able to focus solely on it and finished it up last night.
