Monday Morning Star Count

A Monday Morning Star Count on a Tuesday, a day late but better late then never....now there are 16 stars for my 60 degree diamond quilt slow and steady. I did not get as many stars done this past week as I would of liked. I needed to cut more of the jelly roll strips into diamonds to be basted which caused the slow down. I can get 2 stars from each strip with a little piece left which makes 2 1 inch hexies. What about adding some solids to the mix? And what should the back ground color be? Until next time, keep stitching. Thank you for visiting.

Monday Morning Star Count

Monday! Monday! Monday!
Where did the weekend go?
It was a beautiful autumn weekend here on Long Island.

I have 5 new stars to share which bring my total of  60 degree stars
for my Slow and Steady quilt to 14. 

I am using a jelly roll by Tula Pink for Free Spirit called Slow and Steady.
Aren't my 1 inch hexies cutes?
I am using the end of the leftover jelly roll strips to make hexies for my 1 inch hexi scrappy quilt.
I will share a picture in a future post.

Let's keep stitching our stars and showing our progress with hashtags #60degreediamondSAL or #mondaymorningstarcount or both!

Have a great stitching week!

Monday Morning Star Count

Happy, Happy, Happy Monday!

I am here to share my star count for this week.

I have 5 stars to add to EEP Quilt #5 .

I am just loving the fabric. The stars are just so pretty.

I am using Slow and Steady (which is a good name for a EPP quilt) by Tula Pink for Free Spirit.

This means that EPPQuilt #5 now has a name, "Slow and Steady" quilt.

Here are all my stars for "Slow and Steady" so far.....

I would love to see your progress on your EPP Quilts.

Please stitch along and use the hash tags #MondayMorningStarCount and/or #60degreediamondQAL.

Happy stitching!

Welcome to the Planes, Trains and Automobiles Blog Hop by the Island Batik Ambassadors! I am honored to be an Island Batik Ambassador. The hop started on February 15 and goes until March 4.

Today is my day to show you the absolutely lovely French Roasted collection by Kathy Engle, so grab your passports and come with me to Paris where we can have coffee at a French café. Please bring your coat for it is a chilly 42 degrees F.

To enjoy our stay at a Paris Café fully, you must understand the rules of the café culture.

Sitting and sipping is the point.
Smoking is prohibited
To call the waiter, say Monsieur!

Sit, sip and enjoy! 

The pattern for the coffee cup blocks can be found at Connecting Threads. I added 2 1/2" sashing and  cornerstones. 

The French Roasted collection is available now, check with your favorite quilt shop.

I also made a table runner for a blog hop back in October which I also used the French Roasted collection. You can find the post about this table runner here .
