How many different stars in a constellation?

That is what I have been working on this week.
Counting the stars.

Lots of stars by Sewfrench

I pulled out a dozen, or so, quilting books and after flipping through them all, I picked out a variety, of different stars, and started making them. It’s been very relaxing. Perfect for the cold, snowy, lazy weather of this winter.

No pressure, no deadline and only a slight plan. I feel like a kid playing creatively.

Steven King

I finally got around to starting Steven King’s, time travel book, 11/22/63. I am really enjoying it, he is such a great writer. Reading free Kindle books, is all fine and dandy, but reading a well written book is a whole ‘nuther game.

Life is good.

    What a great idea. They’re looking great so far!

    Great colour choices, they’ll look really twinkly when put together.

    Give me a hard book any day. Hubby has a Kobo and he loves it. It weighs less – ha, ha.
    I LOVE your stars. Especially the blue background. I look forward to seeing the end result.

      Thanks, Delores! I had to Google, Kobo, I wasn’t familiar with that ereader! Don’t you just love the smell of paper?! Though the heft can get to me.
      I am loving this blue background, too. I bought it a year ago and now I am afraid it will dictate the size, based on how much I bought!

    Love that… I’m a block maker myself. With 2 little ones at home, I’ve been having fun practicing techniques and such instead of bigger projects. It’s easier to turn 4 X 12 inch blocks into a table runner than finding time to piece and quilt a bedspread! :-) Good job!

      I’ve never thought of myself as a blockmaker, but I suppose I am. I am thinking one day I will combine lots of random color, and design, blocks into something big. Thanks, Yanuk!

        I feel the same way. I have been working in the Farmer’s Wife Sampler quilt, but with all my colorful, modern scraps. So far, I’m a little under 20 blocks in and it is the most random collection of blocks I’ve ever seen. When I’m done, I want to put it together for fun. A double bed size comforter without a lick of sense. I think it will be amazing because it will be so random, just like me! LOL!

  5. I can’t wait to see what you’re going to do with those delightful stars!

    I like your stars. I’m working on something similar this year, but I’m a little behind where you are… I’ve only just picked my stars. :) Good luck on your endeavor!
