It’s fun to spend time sewing with friends. On Monday I spent all day and evening as a day camper with friends on a quilting retreat. Late in the afternoon, I pulled out my Star for the Day and found a place to sit and do a bit of handwork. Kathleen took a break from her sewing machine and joined me. We chatted as we stitched, sharing Star-A-Day stories. Kathleen is making her tiny stars with the English Paper Piecing method, they are scrappy, happy and perfect.
Across the room, Christy finished sewing some of her stars together and Amy had her first three done, as did Kaye.
There were stars over here and stars over there.
Not everyone on the retreat is making tiny stars. Deanna was working on eight pointed stars too, but in a more reasonable 12″ size.
Although not on retreat with the rest of us, I snapped these photos of my Weds Sewing friends’ star blocks.
It was the first time so many of us who are making tiny stars had been together in a group, so it was fun to share the insanity. As we laughed and stitched it didn’t seem like such a crazy idea after all.
