IIIIII don't want to work

Did you get that tune?
You know, the one by Todd Rundgren.
I don't want to work. I just want to bang on the drum all day. That's what I have been singing for the past four days as I was sewing. After working six days in three weeks over the holidays, I had a full week of work last week. Now I do love my job but I sure did have a great time staying home and doing all that sewing. So I kept singing, "I don't want to work, I just want to sew in my room all day!"

This is what I've been working on. I want to get the blocks done so I can start quilting a special quilt to enter in our guild quilt show in March.

I took this Hunter's Star class back in October from Deb Tucker.
This is how big the top turned out...which isn't big at all (Another row of dark blocks goes on the bottom but I left it off because I knew I was going to make it larger). The blocks are only 6", so.....I am making it twice this size. I got out more beiges and browns and started again over the weekend. Her ruler really is amazing and I highly recommend it if you want to make this block. Check out her web site in the link on her name above.

Until next time...

Gosh that's a nice quilt. I have always liked the Hunter's Star block - but this quilt just sings.

Wow, this will be a show stopper when it is hanging in your show. So pretty!
