Some of the blocks I made to participate in the Just One Star Challenge that I found out about through Deb's blog. They only ask for one block, but it was just as easy to make four. Then I pulled out enough different fabrics, trying to decide what to use and I have two more weeks before I positively have to mail them, that I am planning on making more. The instructions are great and they are easy to put together. Now, the red quilt is another story. I put another row around it and I wasn't happy with the points and so I ripped the row out and made new strips and now have to attach them.

I have also been hand quilting a fence rail quilt I started years ago. I hope to finish it by the end of summer. Busy hands are happy hands! I am working on crocheting a blanket when I get tired of quilting and when I am waiting at soccer practice. I don't know why I gravitating to quilts lately in my sewing, but it's very satisfying and I am enjoying it. Sew Long for Now!

Cindi ~ your blocks are SO creative with the extra added patriotic touch! I'm so glad you're participating. I thought it was fun just knowing a soldier would be getting a quilt with MY block in it! You sound like you have some fun busy work going on! :)
