I seem to be doing a little bit of everything right now, a little bit of wrapping, a little bit of addressing, we even got a little bit of snow. Just a couple of inches that when added to 40 mile an hour winds caused a little bit of a mess. Luckily for me, I just stayed in and watched it from my window.
I've also been able to squeeze in a little sewing!
I'm still undecided on what to do about the red stars in this quilt, but I have decided on something else.
I'm going with this fabric for the sashing and cornerstones for my floating star blocks! My original plan was to use a tone on tone cream, but that was too plain. This fabric was made to surround those stars, don't you think? Just in case you've forgotten, the fabric is Olde World Style by Monique Dillard for Maywood Studio. Thanks Monique, that fabric is just the perfect style and width for this project!
So, like I said, I'm having no trouble with the green star blocks, but I'm still trying to decide what to do about the red stars, but I have made progress! If you consider narrowing my choices down to 3 progress!
Red center star, green background, red and black outer star points. (top row center)

Thelma, give it up, not every quilt needs red!

Anytime I'm in the general neighborhood of my sewing room, I take a peek at my design wall, sooner or later it will come to me, I just know it, in the meantime I'm making more green blocks!
A couple of folks wondered how I got Oh Christmas Tree hung, it only required three things;
