The latest feathered star block (#3) is completed.
For reference, the name and piece count of the center blocks are:
1) Light and Dark star – 24 pieces
2) No Name  – 18 pieces
3) Rolling Stone – 29 pieces
After hand piecing 1, hybrid piecing 1, and machine piecing 1, I have decided that I am going to machine piece the remaining blocks.  Many factors have gone into this decision but the main one is that Inklingo makes it so easy to machine piece and everything goes together so systematically.  I can say that the only downfall to machine piecing is not having a portable project but as you will learn later, I think I have that base covered.
These projects are in the making:
Christmas BOM
Finish smocking and constructing 2 Easter dresses (better get on this one)
Feathered Star (3 of 16 blocks finished) need to cut sashing strip sets and make 24  3-3/4″ variable stars, construct 13 more feathered star blocks
Applique Album quilt – Can do as BOM
Baby quilt – not started or designed (baby due in July)
Wedding quilt – not started but designed and fabric purchased (wedding in 2012)
Several quilts need binding (me procrastinator)
Window treatment for my sewing room (partially designed not  started because I keep changing my mind)
I think this is the reason I don’t have more than one large project going at a time.  I tend to get overwhelmed  when I have too many unfinished projects.  It is a little better for me if I don’t have deadlines on each project but sometimes deadlines help me finish. Do you know what I mean?
Obviously, I better quit talking and get to stitching.
Hope you day has time for a little needle and thread.
