I've been working

I've been working, but unfortunately I haven't posted in a while. I've been working like crazy on the Spa Day top for the shop. It's on April 15th so I must get done. It started out to be lap size but I had plenty of fabric so I decided since I liked it I'd make it bigger, queen size for the guest room...I'll post a picture on the 15th of April.
I've also been working on some little 3-3/4" finished star blocks. They are so much fun...like eating potato chips...can't just do one. I'm doing these for a sample for the shop. I think we'll kit it up also for a show that we do in North Florida in September...gotta get moving on that because September will be here before we blink.
Off and running for the day...have a wonderful day...do something FUN!

Cute stars - why is it they are so darned cute when they are small? Love 'em.

Are you stitching by machine? And are they paper-pieced? I dislike paper piecing so I avoid that, but I like small blocks. My friends tell me that when working with quite small pieces, paper piecing makes it easier. Hmmmmm....

Oh adorable stars! Why are quilts with lots of little blocks just so darn cute!

Your little blocks are just to die for- I love star blocks! Such a surprise to find out I actually visited your shop last summer, and then stumbeled upon your blog from conni lu's blog :) Have a great weekend!

Got your email reply to my question. Thanks. I may give it a try. But first I'm determined to work on a UFO/WIP (I can't decide which on it is but it's annoying me that I'm taking SOOOO long to make it.)

It seems I can´t make small quilts either especially when the blocks are small then it is the more the merrier! Your little stars are very cute, show us some more!

Oh you tease you - we can't see it until April 15th - are you sure? Love the tiny blocks - I adore making tiny blocks. Just like eating chocolates - no way can you make just one - or two - or three. Just like string and mile-a-minute blocks! Are we addicted or what?
