Star and Crown pattern
52Quilts selected #9 to be worked on this month from our 2016 UFO list.  For me it is Star and Crown.  I will be making the small size 38" x 38".  This design is by Pat Speth of Nickel Quilts.  It uses charm squares cut up to give the maker correct pieces for construction.  Pat is known for her use of the charm squares.  I have taken a workshop from her in the past and made some very successful projects.  I'm looking forward to this one that I will be calling Konstellation and Krown.
Kanton Kull

I also have three BOMs to keep up with in February.  Another month of HSTs for Konstitution, a border round for Kanton Kull, and more star blocks for Kalvery.

Sunshine Quilt Guild's BOM for February needs to be stitched up before the next meeting; a week from today.  We are also having a member led School Is In Session meeting.  I'll be showing how to make Flying Geese units in several different ways.
Kaffe Kisses
I hope to get more blocks together for Kaffe Kisses, but this will come after the projects with timelines finish.  

Hand sewing the binding and snowflakes of Komatose and Krystals is also on my "to do" list along with finishing the machine applique on Kastaway.  

Winning Combination

And if all of that isn't enough...with my collection of bonus triangles from various past projects...lunchtime will have me trimming with my Bloc-Loc ruler 2" HSTs for another project that I recently found in American Patchwork and Quilting April Issue called Winning Combination by Tammy Vonderschmitt.  I am so excited to have the nearly 1,000 bonus triangles now with a home.  Please do help me with a "K" name for this one!

I think you should call it "Killer" as in, "all these HSTs are killin' me!"

Don't know where to start. Your list of goals is mind boggling!
Love the fabric you have selected for Konstellation and Krown. Blue and brown is a favorite combo.
Wow--your new project is ambitious--no surprise there.
The names I thought of were Kareening or "Kutarug" (as in cut a rug). Just seemed like the blocks are whirling out of control to me. : )

Still have a lot going on, Konstellaton and Krown are going to be another nice one. good colors and pattern. Good friends have given you a good selection on the name that you will need.
