Second Day

I did a few more stars yesterday after I posted, bringing my total yesterday to 5.  That makes 9 done and 11 to go.  Today, I’ve done 2 stars already and hope to do 4 more before this evening’s hockey game between Montreal (Applause, applause) and Boston (Booooo!).  I would have had more done today, but I forgot about a midday game.  I’m not huge into hockey, but my DH is, so I am, too.  He’s into my quilting because I am, so it pays off whenever I want to stop at a quilt shop.   Anyway, here’s pics of some of the stars backs and a couple fronts (next to their backs).   IMG_2809IMG_2810IMG_2811IMG_2812IMG_2813IMG_2814IMG_2816

This next set is how I make my wholecloth designs.  Remember, I don’t like to mark, so I just make the 4 axis lines and punt from there.  This is a very small piece, measuring 6.5 inches across.  IMG_2817

I’ll switch to it as my warm up and show the progression over the next few days.

I love that "punt from there"! Getting football and hockey in the same quilting post!Well Done! That is a teeny tiny "wholecloth" quilt you've got there. I'm working on my first wholecloth design, which I hope to work on during the next two weeks, and I'm not real keen on marking either, so I may have to take up punting as well! Love how your friendship stars are looking!
