Happy 2012!

Wishing you a very happy, healthy and creative new year!

This is one quilt I'll be working on.  The star blocks are 19".  The template is from Gwen Marston's String Quilts Book.  I'm planning to make nine stars.  Goodness knows, I have plenty of scraps!

I love these stars with the plaid. I don't know how I've missed your blog before - perhaps I wasn't ready for it:)
Just went through your slide show and it was amazing. Thankyou and Happy New Year.
