All caught up....for now

Has anyone else been following with the Star quilt along over at Crazy Mom Quilts with Amanda Jean? I have but I started a little late. I came into the quilt along when they were on week 7. They are now on week 9 . If you have not started, don't worry, you will have time to catch up. They are going to do 4 more blocks . It has been a great learning experience for me. I completed one quilt last month but it was very easy compared to these blocks.

This is one of my favorites so far. I forget what Amanda called this one. I think it might be the Ohio Star. If not , please let me know the proper name. I really enjopyed making this one.

This come is called "Optical Sawtooth." I am not so sure I like the results on this one. Not that Amanda gave bad directions or anything, I am just not sure where I made my boo boo at.

The next star that we are on now is "Martha Washington" star. It is very pretty and I hope that I can do it justice. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

My youngest dd and I went thrifting today. We hit a few in Antioch and then one in Oakley. We had some good luck but nothing to post pics about. I did manage to find 13 Martha Stewart, Victoria, Country Living, and Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion though for 50 cents each. They are a few years old but HEY, good ideas never grow old, right? Maybe the pickins will be better next week.

If you want to see someone that always scores in the Thrifting department check out Monkeybox. I am forever drooling when I go to her blog!!

Well, I must run, my youngest is coming home from Cheer Camp and sent me a text message that she is really sunburnt.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for dropping by my blog! Do try that stain remover stuff. I get the store brand, which is less expensive. (Hey, when you buy something for a quarter you don't want to spend dollars removing a stain!) For some stains I find you have to let the thing soak for several days (like the red ink). But it usually does the trick.
