I'm seeing stars.....

Christmas stars that is.....

I'm using Bonnie Hunters pattern found on her Quiltville site. All reds and greens and so festive. It's making me smile and goes together so quickly. Yep, just me and my Ethel all day today. Life just don't get any better that this...... I'm heading back to it. I'll post a pic when the top is all together.....

Check out my CURVES!

Over a year ago I bought a foot just for piecing curves. I can't remember the name, but I got it at the Novi Fabric Expo in Sept of '07. I also bought some curved templates. I ran across them in the disaster I call my sewing room the other day. I found a set of fq's I don't remember buying from Connecting Threads and decided to go for it.





I did try doing this with my regular 1/4" foot and it didn't go so well, but with this foot made for curved pieces it's a lot easier and looks much better. The foot came with a pair of tweezers so you can hold the fabric through the foot. It might be a curve master, or something like that. So far, these are fun. Not my favorite colors in the fabrics, but I'll just give it to someone who's as Jen says "quilt worthy". Well, back to it! I'm going to have Garry check out my curves when he gets home. Get your minds out of the gutters!
