This week's Grandmother's Choice BOW was just a little too much work for me: Seven Pointed Star. So I considered skipping this week altogether, because I am one block ahead...
But, instead I went back to the Civil War Quilts blog and picked out North Star as a substitute. There is nothing I don't like about this block. The sharp contrast between the fabrics is perfect, and I'm pleased that I took the time to get the red pattern all going in the right direction.
And besides...it kinda looks like THIS:
I hope you are celebrating today!
I finished piecing Shirt Stripes Boxes together last night! I've been working away at the backing all week, along with the crumb blocks. I have a sneaking suspicion I don't have enough fabric for the back.
This is really annoying because I had enough shirt backs from all the shirts I used in the top to make the first quilt. This is going to take some math to figure out. I'm going to be really quite annoyed if I have to go and buy more blue and white striped shirts!
