The Stars Align #1
After a summer of white charmeuse and virtually no quilting, the timing was excellent when I ran into a friend at an almost LQS and she mentioned, "Oh by the way, there's this Civil War block exchange and we signed you up for it." I had only a few weeks to get cracking on 16 three inch blocks but was highly motivated to make antique-looking stars, and to make them small. No question, I was IN.
Our first exchange was this past Saturday, at Liz's house. Did I mention this is a book club too? We talked about a book (Pillars of the Earth),
we enjoyed breakfast scones and fresh fruit,
Liz demo'd a handy-dandy ruler that looks to simplify these tiny star blocks,
we had show and tell,
and we exchanged blocks.
Can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning.
