  1. I like the direction your evening star quilt is going in. I’m particularly fond of the blue burlap fabric. The color seems so rich with its earthy texture. 😊

  2. Love the star block and your great nephew!

      Hi Chris,
      Sending you good vibes to get that hand quilting finished. You still have 11 more days . . . plenty of time! Right?!! HAHA ~smile~ Roseanne

    It is going to be adorable whichever way. I’d say go for the top finish. I don’t always say for my omg that I am going to finish a quilt. For example this month it is just get the applique done on the blocks. I haven’t been doing the omg that long but I do like it because it makes me focus on one thing even though I am doing other bits and pieces. Very impressed with all those hst’s they take awhile measuring to size once sewn!

      Hi Kathryn,
      At least I was smart enough to be ambiguous with the goal. So it’s a matter of interpretation as to whether the goal is met or not, and I get to call it. HAHA Thanks for the encouragement. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Good luck, I hope you accomplish your goal. However, I would put the goal aside anytime to spend time with the beautiful baby.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Cherie,
      Yes, people definitely come first . . . especially that special guy. He doesn’t even know the power he yields yet. ~smile~ Roseanne

    You’ve picked a fun project for OMG. I love the OMG because it helps me prioritize my sewing room time, which this year has meant more finishes. But some months I don’t quite get the goal done, but I always make progress. That’s my goal is the progress. So you’ve made progress even if you don’t get all the way there. Happy stitching this weekend.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Kate,
      Progress! We all like progress and there has been lots of that. I guess I miscalculated how much fabric the stars would need, darn it. But at some point we will have the additional fabric we need, and it will get finished. I just love all the support! Thanks so much for your kind words and visit. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Ok girls, I’m gonna give you a simple way to knock out those HST’s in no time. Its called the magic 8 method. You cut a square of each of the 2 fabrics you are using. Using the finished size you want, in your case it’s 2.25 finished. You double that and add 1.25 inches. So that is 5.75″ That is the size you will cut your fabric squares. Then you mark a line on the lighter fabric going corner to corner in both directions. Stitch your 1/4 ” on each side of both lines. Then you cut straight up & down and side to side then in between the stitched lines and presto you have 8 HST’s.
    Knock ’em out girls YOU CAN DO IT!

      Hi Ellen,
      Thanks! We can feel your motivation behind us – pushing us along. Hey – not that hard – we ran out of fabric. HAHA But as soon as it gets here, we will be putting the needle to the fabric like a pedal-to-the-metal kind of thing. EEK ~smile~ Roseanne

    Sure you can do it-just drink lots of coffee or use toothpicks to keep those eyes open for late night sewing!!!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Vicki,
      Thanks for the encouragement! Coffee is my friend and it will help but right now we need the blue fabric to just get here already. We ran out and cannot keep going without it. But I’m gonna get ‘er done somehow! ~smile~ Roseanne
