Remember I am making a 1000 Pyramids quilt? Well, I have been cutting the triangles out of nickels. It seemed such a waste of those other triangle pieces, surely I could find something to do with them? So I sewed them together and trimmed to half rectangles and put this pointy star together with some four inch squares and two inch sashing. I will add another outer border, scrappy somehow.
My dh and dd said in unison "Look, more stars!"
There was a post on this ring awhile back about finding your "thing" in quilting. Mine has always been stars. Four, six, eight points, doesn't matter. Remember the blue and white star sampler (in a previous post), the Mexican crosses (Stars) (in a previous post with the polka dot border) , the Christmas mystery quilt(see below)? All stars. No one is surprised anymore by my quilts, they are stars. Maybe I should get a new thing? Anyway, I love stars, they way they can be so different and stand out from the background. And the points, oh the points. Sometimes, I chop them off just for fun.
This is a wallhanging I made for my mom. Just a big star with little stars...
A star variation "Chiclets" that I saw on QNN. Dh said, "Oh look, more stars!"
A Feathered Star from a small paperpieced pattern. Not sure if I really like the yellow border but it is quilted and hanging on the wall so I guess it is too late.
It is very windy here today, the temp is 5 %. Our screen door is just blowing back and forth. The wind is so strong, I can't keep it closed. But the light is coming back and for that I am soooo thankful!
