Sewing Sunday

I love productive days and today has been one of them.  Now that I have this pieced I'm trying to decide if I should start quilting it, or since the piecing is going well do I continue to piece something else?  I thought I'd take a little break and show you my progress for today.


I was not so sure about my fabric choices once I started working on the rail fence blocks, but I'm very happy with them now (Simply Style from Moda).  I loved working on the stars, they went together easily with perfect points (I'm certain that is because of the pattern and cutting instructions).


I always love a pattern that doesn't have a ton of  fabric scraps left over and this Schnibbles called Lincoln by Carrie Nelson leaves only 12 charms unused, which in my book is perfect.  I'm thinking that basting will be in order in another couple of hours.  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen
