Monday Morning Star Count

A Monday Morning Star Count on a Tuesday, a day late but better late then 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! Christine

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!
