|pattern found in "the Best of Scrap Quilting Made Easy"|
I got one today. A lady asked where to find the pattern for this "Exploding Star" and asked what fabrics were used. I clicked "reply" and there was the dreaded email@example.com
I'm always disappointed when I see that. I want to reply, and I can't. Her comment was connected to a blog that's not active. There's no e-mail given anywhere that I can find, so I'm trying this method to contact Starrlite59 of Karen's Corner of the World.
This energetic, dramatic quilt was made by Aaron, a friend's son. I wrote about him and his quilting last year in the post "Another Guy Who Quilts." If you haven't read or don't remember the post, check it out. You'll be rewarded with a wonderful trunk show from a very talented young man--a husband, father, teacher, and all-around talented guy. His mom (my friend Chris) showed him the basics, gave him some starting supplies, and away he went. The quality of his work is stupendous. He's fearless. You should see his FMQing!
|found in my button boxes--7/8" and larger|
In my last post, I complained that I didn't have enough large black buttons for my 5 snowmen, and they're expensive. Barb commented that she made a long snowman with a variety of buttons (not all black). So, I sorted through my old buttons again. Tah Dah!! I have plenty. Thanks for the encouragement to mix my buttons, Barb.
Back to my rotary cutter. This is a week for firsts. First, projects with wool, and now I'm cutting my first all-flannel quilt. I think a set of 18 flannels from the same line have aged long enough on a shelf.
