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.
