Let's start with something that I actually checked off of my list this month. To start, I put another border on my medallion quilt. Yippee! I started this quilt a little over two years ago, when I took Winnie Fleming's Ultimate Borders class with Mom. Since then, it's basically been sitting in a box, waiting for me to pick it up again. I can officially say that I've picked it up again, and I'm still loving the colors and the way it's shaping up! There's only one more border left to do (plus another floater border) before it's finished. The last border will be half Lonestars, using the same colors as the center Lonestar. It'll be gorgeous, although I'm not looking forward to all of those y-seams!

Now, on to what I've started this month. I know I have enough already started to keep me busy for years, but sometimes I just can't help myself! A couple of quilter friends and I have started doing an exchange of teeny tiny, 2-inch (finished) stars, to make the quilt Stardust from the book Every Last Piece by Lynn Harris. It's such a beautiful quilt! We're going for a smaller version, more twin size than queen size, only because we want to finish in our lifetimes. It takes me about an hour per star, and we're making 15 stars each month so we'll finish toward the end of next year. Whew! It will be gorgeous!!!
