Finished Ohio Stars and Rails

Now, on to the rows!!!

I just don't seem to have enough time to do all the steps! Life just gets in the way!

If you see anything that I should change about the placement of the blocks, be sure to tell me. I've looked and looked to be sure the rails are going in the right direction and that all the Ohio Stars really are stars!

Check out my makeshift design wall. It's two pieces of flannel sewn together and draped over two four-foot wide closed closet doors secured with plastic over-the-door hooks. Trouble is it's in the bonus room where the huge TV is located and two huge reclining couches. The couch is in the way, so all my design wall photos are going to slightly skewed.

Yikes, just went to look at Bonnie's Ohio Stars and Rails and it looks like I have to shift some blocks so there are stars at all four corners, what do you think? They are just pinned for now. Ugh, does this mean I might need to make more????? Comments welcomed.


  1. To get stars in all four corner,I think you would need an uneven number of rows. I think it looks great like this.

It's Been Awhile

I will just say, "Sorry," and move on. Life really gets in the way A LOT for me. It's been a hot summer and the pool has been very inviting. Too hot to sew outside, so "swimming" it is!!! The tree over our pool has shed its leaves directly into the pool. They are still falling, it's a bunch of work to keep them gathered up and off the bottom. Since my husband is unable to tend to the outside work (or inside), I've taken on this task. I've only sucked up so many leaves one time and had to call the pool company to blow the lines. Got one of those leaf catchers, pronto!!! 
Enough said, here's what I've been up to:
I decided that I couldn't pass up the Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fat Quarter Shop. This was the pattern called Moonshine and they included the fabrics so I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.  I'm really happy with my points on this one. I've added the outer borders and will update the pic soon. I'm act…

2017 is Here

Okay, so truth be told, I didn't do very well at finishing projects or blogging about them in 2017. If I blog every day about my 15 minutes of sewing, will that drive readers away?

I did finish this quilt, so I can cross that off of my UFOs, right? I have gifted it, but I really wish I had a pic of the flying geese going up/down. Sigh. Now to made some 2017!!

I did add a page for 2017 so I could list them, but I have so many years with so many unfinished quilts, it's embarrassing. BLUSH
I did start Bonnie Hunter's En Provence and here's a sample of a somewhat finished block. 

I also played around with Cheryl's Meadow Mist Mystery 2017 and I'm almost finished in time for tomorrow's next clue.  I think the piece on the bottom row in the middle might be the inside of the fabric or not??? I'll check.  All the other steps are finished, I hope. 

I'm also going to try free motion quilting for the first time, so I am ready with my panel and will…

A New Project

Here are my fabrics for a new project that is a mystery quilt on a Facebook group to which I belong. If you are interested, you can join the group called "Just Us Quilters" and join in the fun.
