Solstice Stars Series

I found this wonderful series of quilt blocks and can't wait to start it!  I love stars!  The series is called the Solstice Stars Series.  I'm going to try and post the button on the right side of my page.

Finished a few more blocks in my civil war quilt block collection.  Only a LOT more to go.  I need to side track myself every once in a while to get a few completed.  I now have 14 of them, but I think I have to rethink the basket block. It's a little to bright compared to the others.  Maybe I'll use it as a quilt label for the back.

I hope I win this contest.  I've always wanted to try this thread.  If I don't win, I guess I'll have to break down and spend some money!  I'm not greedy though, so go ahead and give it a try yourself :)

It's looks like I took this one upside down.  Two swoon blocks down.  I have a whole week off to work on the others.  I can't wait!  These blocks are huge so there can't be many unless I want to make a King Size quilt!

I was finally able to finish my Mill's Girls Quilt.  About a month ago, I finally got my long arm and I've been able to finish up the tops to the quilts that I've been putting off.  As you can see, I've been able to get a few done.  The Mill's Girls quitl was time consuming and obviously a little hard on the eyes after a while.  I screwed up on the left side and didn't notice until it was that far down on the long arm.  Oh well. I don't think I would have gone back to rip it out since I had already been down that road with this one many times.  Even though it has those blocks turned wrong, I really enjoy this quilt.  A lot of effort paid off.
 I was also able to get a duckie quilt ready for a baby gift this past week.  I put the design of the quilt together myself after constructing four 12 1/2" blocks.  It turned out pretty cute.
 Before I started all of the quilting above, my husband and son got busy putting cupboards into my quilt room.  I'll have to repost later with the updates to the room that I've done since then.  I REALLY love my quilt room now.  It still needs a few more decorations, but I'm getting there little by little.
