There is nothing like a clean white snowy background for a few blocks. I took my sewing machine in to be cleaned and had to figure out how to use my old machine again. It took me a while, but I finally figured it out.
Once again these are all fabrics that I never would have chosen to put together, but they work. There are not many stars left to do so the decision is going to have to be made soon on what type of applique I am going to use. I am steering towards machine applique, but I think that may be a bit slow going until I've done a few blocks as I am not fond of unsewing.

I went to this crazy quilt store super bowl sale yesterday. They had 25% off all yard cuts of fabric and evidently everyone needed yards and yards of fabric because the store was so packed you could hardly get in. I bought 2-1/4 yards for backing for two quilts. As I left my sewing machine there for cleaning, I will not be able to do any quilting until I get it back, but the quilts should be pinned and all ready to quilt before then. I also received good news from the doctor late Friday night that all the skin cancer was removed and the margins are clear, now to just get everything healed. Happy Stitching!! --Kristen
