I'm not capable of coherent thought tonight, I've been slaving away at business stuff and will have to work over the weekend to get things finished. But there has been sewing; while I'm printing packs I sew leader and ender pieces, and the blocks are building up. I also managed to get the Maverick Stars in one piece, and now it can hang on my lounge-room wall for a while until I decide what sort of border to use as a finish. I like looking at it at night, all the crazy angles and little scraps. I'm very fond of it now. I don't know whether to make it 12 blocks, I don't think I'm finished with those stars yet....

I have done my run on the treadmill, watching my football team get beaten, and now I'm going to have a late supper. Does this look even remotely edible? It's positively glowing! But with a glass of red wine it will be divine.....

But what IS IT? Cheese? lol

I love your quilt, the setting stones positively "glow". Great job.

I love the stringy stars and the cheese looks good too! Some red wine is going to be consumed here in Minneapolis tonight also.

OOH, I love those stars!
But...the cheese... I just couldnt thankyou.
Just the glass of wine will be ok.

Are you Kidding? I can smell that from here!!!
I love the stars, those red and yellow nine-patch setting squares are the perfect touch in the sashings. Even at nine blocks it will make a gorgeous quilt.

I wouldn't eat that cheese, but wouldn't it make lovely marbled fabric?? Even without contrast, that sure looks like a tumbling blocks unit to me!

Hope this isn't received as nagging, but when you get some time, would you consider a post about how you kit-up a project? Would love to watch over your shoulder when you do this, and learn maybe some tips on this especially for a scrappy project. The hot weather coming up here in North America cries out for small and portable projects.

Many regards, love your quilts and blog.

I love the setting patches that twinkle! It's a very dynamic quilt. Beautiful! As for the cheese.......... was it tasty? Not my cup of tea, I'm afraid.

I love how the checkerboard sashings look like leaves at the bottom of a forest floor, the way the light filters through the trees.

This quilt really glows! It is stunning. I am curious to see how you are going to quilt it. And about the cheese, well I am french, I would eat anything! Especially smelly cheese! Take care.

This quilt top is awesome! Have you considered going without a border and just quilt and bind as is?

So enjoyed reading your post about everything that's going on. You can camp at my place if you bring wine... :)
