Finished Friday

Well not really - I think it is finishing Friday and starting a new project Friday ..... 

So I am finishing up all the things that were on my cutting table - I hope that ALL of them get done, but I won't worry if they don't, its always nice to have a project in process....and an escape ;-)

Wanna see what I am going to start???? Because - honestly - what is one more project, right?

This is very similar to Judy L's ( Carpenter Star quilt - except it is missing a small border.... only cuz I am not smart enough to figure out how to do that in EQ7!!

So far - I have the yardage chosen and the creams cut.... 

If you are interested in this layout:  EQ7 says that you need
1 3/8 yards of Cream
1/2 yard of Royal Blue
1 5/8 yards of Navy Blue
3/4 yards Dark Red
1/2 yd Light Red

I decided that I would cut 7 inch squares for the half square triangles, and mark the center - then sew 1/4 inch off of that - so the half squares should measure up to 6 1/2 inches.... sound right?

So - what is everyone else up to? Link up and let me check them out!!

The Carpenter's Star quilts are such fun to make, they go together easily and quick, plus they look terrific!

Enjoy your weekend.

I found a Carpenters Star quilt at a thrift store on my birthday. It was done in fun, garish colors. I may have to make one now.

Nice Carpenter's Star. Are you doing the feather class with Judy? I still have to make mine.

Now I have to look at my EQ7 to see if I can figure it out! Too funny.

Beautiful! I love it and have a carpenter star pattern. I need to put it on my list of quilts to make this fall/winter.
