See what I have been doing

This is the first of many blocks to do. This is the hand work I have prepped. I wanted to make one to see how long it took and the overall look of the block. I made it a whole 2 inches wider all around. I like the design, but felt it was to crammed onto the 12.5 inch square block. This block is 14.5 inches square. This way we can do more quilting designs in the background areas.   

Here is the scrappy stars that I have been working on off and on. The total is 31 blocks so far. I think a sashing that is pieced with a secondary star could be interesting. 

We have another storm coming today so we will be doing snow removal again. They are predicting 3-5 inches before 6pm tonight. Hasn't started yet so it must be going to come down fairly heavy. Take it easy today. Chris

I like the idea of a sashing with the secondary star.
