Official Snow Day #3

It's Monday and our holiday time at home has been extended by snow.  DH and I agreed that Jan. 2nd was awfully early for the kids to go back to school. Two rounds of snow has given them 3 days off and school is cancelled tomorrow, too.  DH also got a snow day today, which was supposed to be his first day back.  Although, he's doing a bit of work while I try to quilt in the basement with 4 boys between the ages of 7 and 9 basking in their 3rd day off school.

Yesterday I cut out some background muslin to make 16 of these star blocks. This is block one - just had to see one made up.  I think it might make a nice graduation gift for our babysitter.

See those eight 2" bonus HSTs that come with every block? Maybe they can find a place in a border.

This is a Moda Bake Shop pattern called Charming Stars.  The red & white charms I'm using are from the first blogger swap I ever participated in about 3 years ago now.  One of the participants made this quilt with her charms and it's been on my list ever since.

I've been cutting for Clue 2 of Celtic Soltice as well.  I need a break before cutting another 100+ neutral squares.  Maybe a bit of reading is in order.



  1. I am making similar stars but starting with 2-1/2" squares. They are really fun and yours looks great!

  2. Loving the red/white block and a good idea to save those little squares :)
