38 Ohio Stars on the Board

38 Ohio Stars on the Board ....
38 Ohio Stars ....
 
These Orca Bay, Step 6 blocks (from Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville.com ) sew up faster than expected.  The final pressing (seams pressed in or out) will be completed when we are given more instructions.  My star centers also include several purpley blues.  I thought the pink might add some spark - I'm loving them all!  The small units of strings are in the pinks and purpley ranges, and my larger string units are in the blues/purpley/turquoise range. 
I don't want to eat anything ever again ...8-(

These blocks by themselves would make a lovely quilt! Exciting times ahead from Bonnie!

I pressed all my seams open except for the hourglass units. I have 18 of each light/dark all done and pressed. They are soooo cute. I have to finish them tomorrow.
XOXOXO Subee

You take one down, pass it around, 37 Ohio stars on the board...no, wait, that doesn't fit here. : )
I am interested to see how your fun combination of colors looks in the finished product.

Looks like you've been busy, busy, busy. Great progress! Did you eat too much for the holiday? I did pretty good by not being around a lot of goodies this time.

Wow... lookee you sew 'em up so fast! Your blocks are great! Like your idea of mixing up the center square. Can't wait to see them all together. This is such a great project.
Happy New Year!
hugs,

You have certainly been busy! I love the notebooks that you've been making. I wonder if I could figure out how to change the measurements for Japanese notebooks.
And great job on Bonnie's Mystery quilt! I could have sent you black fabric too....
