Quilty Stars

 I started on a new quilt.  
My friend Mel, spurred me on.  
She and I like to choose a quilt and then both make one.
  She is in Colorado and I am in Michigan, but it is fun to "work together" from a distance.  
Since this is one I was planning on making for a wedding gift
 it seemed like a great plan to get a jump on it. 
 I have a few others I "need" to do but this is the only wedding one I have for 2021 (so far) 
and no new baby quilts. 
I have one more family quilt to make and am still deciding on a pattern.
 I feel like once this one is done I may have a little breathing room to finish up some WIPs and maybe even begin something I actually want to do just because!

Have you seen the Quilty Stars pattern? 
 It is so cute.  
Of course you ^know^ the colors I have to use right?? 
 Gray and white.  
This is the center and then there are HST to make the star points.
I have those all sewn and trimmed.

This one was "helping" me trim my HST
I had to keep moving his back legs to turn the mat.

He was SOOOOOOO tired after all his helping!

I am excited to get time to work on this soon. 
 My other friend Traci has a shop and sent me a baby quilt to make for her shop. 
 I have all of the blocks finished.
I cut something incorrectly so am waiting for a bit more fabric.

We are very lucky that they work for treats or we would be in the poor house, lol
