Seeing Stars...

Not the best picture in the world, but here is the Nellie's Star quilt top finished! I *LOVE* this quilt! It is about 60" square. I got the backing last night, so just need to get it laid out and pinned, so I can hand-quilt it! :o)
And more stars.... I was the hostess for a Christmas Star Block Swap, and these are the wonderful blocks that were sent in! The first two blocks were made by me, all the others were made by other gals in our Friendship Group... I can't wait to put this together! I may make a couple more blocks, so that I have 30, to make it 5 x 6.
And here is the Secret Santa gift I sent to a gal, from that same Friendship Group. We were just supposed to send "an ornament" but I went a little overboard... :o)
I will be back soon for a Christmas give-away... :o) It will include some of those Christmas hot pads, and I'm not sure what else... :o) Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for visiting!

Your projects are all lovely. The star is quite an undertaking, and it looks great! It'll be a special project to hand quilt.
