Catching up

I guess I can't be too hard on April for not blogging regularly since I've been a bit remiss in my blog-iblations, too! lol I've not been so busy that I can't post, I just haven't taken the time. I've been cutting more scraps for the Star Light project. This has reduced my stash somewhat, but in looking for more pieces to cut, I found more yardage. I've really got to get more organized. Now I need to go buy the cream-colored fabric for the stars.
This is another leftover bag made with strips left from the placemats. This was my first attempt at putting in a zipper. Not too bad, but I want to try another technique on the next bag.
Last, but not least, is the round robin vest for this month. The owner did the medallion (isn't it absolutely gorgeous!) and I applied the bottom part. That part is called "Reflections". My blocks were made using "rectangles or squares".

Judy and I just got back from attending a graduation luau for one of her friend's daughter. Very nicely done with all the decorations and great food.

I think the bag is great.

That vest is incredible.

I just finished all the square corners on my rectangles for the Starlights quilt. Wow that's a lot of corners. I sewed together all the triangles trimmed from the corners. Not sure what I'm going to do with them, but they were just sitting there, already matched up. Who could ignore that and throw them away? Anxious to see how yours is going to come out. Are you doing one each, or collaborating on the project?
