Resistance Is Futile

It's back to stars this week - seems hard to stay away from them lately. The Official Cookie Tester really liked the table toppers that I made for the bazaar and has requested one for our table, so I'm striking while the iron is hot.

Maybe it wasn't hot enough. I was obviously on another planet when I started trimming the pieces with the points...really, what was I thinking?

This is what it should look like.

This time around I laid all of the blocks out before I started sewing so that I could get a sense of fabric placement. The first two that I made I had just made it up as I went. This was faster and more organized, at least until I started trimming :).

Seemingly in spite of myself I have managed to get everything together and ready to quilt.

I'm happy that I've found a project to use that mitten fabric in. I've had it for a couple of years now but never seemed to be working on the right project to use it....M

Marie: looking swell, a great combo of reds and greens, gets you in the Christmas spirit doesn't it. Working on a stocking for Logan right now and enjoying the Christmas-y feeling. xo
