Making Progress… And Placemats!

Last weekend I whipped up a couple of reversible placemats for our little kitchen table. Here you can see one of each fabric on the glass top.


I’ve also made progress on the quilt I’m working on. I’m now starting on the alternating feathered star pattern which is similar to these, but includes an 8 pointed star in the center like the one you see here.

I’m really loving how this is turning out, and I have changed my thoughts on layout from my initial plans.  Very rarely do I stick to my plans, so I guess this shouldn’t surprise me.  I know lots of quilters plan their quilts right down to each quarter inch.  Not me!  I let my quilts talk to me while they are in progress.  So… what do you think I will do with the little 8 pointed star block(s)? Yes, there will be more than one of them!  Actually, they will be in 2 different sizes.  
Ponder that for awhile!
