WIP Wednesday #3

This week I did not finish a lot.  I was on nights, but only two.  What's my excuse?  Well, not children--don't have those just yet, not cleaning my house--total disaster, not anything legit really.  I've been feeding my other addiction: reading!  Reading The Hunger Games trilogy, by Suzanne Collins to be precise.  I can't get enough of those books.  I bought them for my kindle, and let's just say I'm not afraid to read a book several times (cough, Harry Potter)!

Anywho!  I continued to work on my Starry Eyed quilt this week.  I finished all of the 'non-star' blocks (henceforth block B).

I've finished 7/10 stars thus far.

After whining talking about my little faux pas, some kind bloggers assured me that it was okay to have cream points on some stars (it's all in the previous post).  And I just wanted them to know I feel much better about the whole schmozzle and will be hand quilting around the stars in red.  Although I went to get cotton perle and my LQS didn't have any so I just got hand quilting thread.  Will this be thick enough?  I can always order some online, or try another store.

So, head only over to WIP Wednesday with Lee at Freshly Pieced and see what everyone else has rocking.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Hey! We're making the same quilt. The only difference is that You're Making It, and mine is still up in the box in my closet. (I'm inspired--I need to get going on it.) Now I'm going to go and read some more of your blog so I can get some tips from you. I decided to start from the back of Lee's WIP crowd tonight for my 10 comments (I try to do ten every week) and soooo glad I did!

  3. It's looking great! Keep up your momentum, you're nearly there!

  4. I love that fabric, I think your quilt is going to be wonderful! I am also glad you are making it your way!
