A New Quilt for Richard

One of the goals I had this year was to make a quilt for Mr. B. Earlier this year I picked out some fabric and a quilt I wanted to do.  He approved the fabric. 

Well time slipped away and then I was sick while I was on vacation for Christmas, that was a bummer.  We still had a nice Christmas I just didn't do some of the little extra stuff I do.  No one noticed. 

First Block
So on Monday the 26th I started Mr. B's quilt, it is called Orion's Star by Eleanor Burns.   My husband likes red, white & blue, so that is what he is getting. 

I made one block and there are a total of 15.  I like to make one so I see the fabrics the way they are suppose to go.  I really like the red and the blues, I am not happy about the lights, especially the middle one.  He won't notice he will just like it any way. 
7 more centers
First lights
I was able to make almost 7 of the centers. 

Tonight I did some more sewing and I have the second light on all the 7 centers I have made.  The stars take the most time. 

Happy Stitching!

What a great quilt that is going to be. And it incorporates my two favorite blocks -- variable star and log cabin (and of course, one of my favorite color schemes). It will be a real keeper!
