Look what the postal person brought to my mail box today! Betty (Mom) is second to turn in her HSTs for the swap that I've been coordinating. A great variety of darks and neutrals. All ironed nice and crisp. I even got two FQs as a token for my efforts. I'll be making in the not too distant future another design from the book by Pat Wys called Spotlight on Neutrals. The gray will be a perfect addition.
While watching all the great dancing on Dancing With The Stars last night...I kept my sewing machine humming on the border sections. I was able to finish two As and two Bs as well as start on a third A. I'm liking what's going on so far. This Judy Niemeyer design Mariner's Star is one of her earlier patterns that was introduced in 2001. The fabrics are all from my stash so far. Looks like I'll have enough easily to finish the border.
Take time today to blog hop through the Quiltmaker links as they roll out Volume 7 of their wonderful 100 Blocks series.
The Noble Wife is just one on the Blog Tour for Monday...
