One of my favorite things to do is sew with my granddaughter, Jana. She was here this weekend. We worked on a project for her mom. We put a nice dent in the blocks and also decided on a layout. We want the quilt to look like leaves laying on the ground. In a reversal of roles, I ended up pressing the blocks and Jana pieced.

Obviously we need more blocks. Four Mountains-make one block. We need around 10 more. This will be lap size, with about a three inch border.
Earlier this week the Clermont Count Ohio Stars Guild had a picnic meeting. The group has been working on a charity quilt. At this stage they are picking thread and backing. They have been working on this project the past year (before I joined). It is going to be fabulous.
Of course what would a picnic be without good conversation and food.
After a relaxing evening, it's back to work. I am nearing another milestone on my Delightful Stars Quilt. The next lesson is August 26th. This will result in the center being assembled. Only one more block to do and I will be ready. These are two of the paper pieced blocks. Isn't the Starlight block on the bottom a pretty block?
