Seeing stars & Sunday Sewing

 I mostly did what i set out to do. Working on the Xmas top took a bit longer than i'd hoped. A little problem of seams going the same way so therefore not butting up nicely when attached to another block. Also it's not quite finished as i do my borders different to Gail so i didn't have enough fabric. Maybe i should've done it her way. :)
Just the bottom border to go. After working on the Xmas bom it was then onto my stars. A bit of cutting out required before i could begin. That was time consuming but i did get my 4 stars done.
I chose to use Miss Kate charm packs & Moda 97. I usually throw out the little triangles that are cut off  but i'm following Terry's lead & making mini pinwheels with them.
I can use them as filler blocks in a Bonnie & Camille sampler bee swap i'm in or just make a table runner with them.  Only thing i didn't get to was the blocks for the B & C sampler swap. They are first on the list for next sewing day.

Happy Stitching,
