I had the unprecedented opportunity to take a Friday off, so I did, and a Monday too. I got more reading done than quilting, but I did make some good headway.
I put together the backing for the star quilt and got it pinned together:
I only had a yard of the black star fabric, which wasn't enough, so I had to improvise to finish it without buying any more fabric. It could definitely look better, but I'm content.
I also decided on a layout for my first Quilt Block Project quilt:
This is quite an achievement, since there are so many fabulous blocks to choose from, which was causing extreme indecision.
Of course, I originally intended to work on my crazy nine patch layouts. That'll be next on the list.
