B's plane quilt is FINISHED FINISHED FINISHED
and she LOVES it...says it's puffy enuf ...

And then, I'm still working on SIL's Star Afghan (crochet) and hope to have
it 'sewn together' with yarn by her HB in Oct or by Christmas, but I thought
I'd let you have a peek at it anyway.

This URL  will be up a short time only...they will be on our web-site when
that's done.

Butterfly (enjoy)

Fantastic, Butterfly.  What a wonderful achievement! (both of them).
Thanks for letting us see them.  They will mean so very much to your DD
and SIL.

Absolutely gorgeous quilt, Butterfly!  And I just love that afghan.  Are all
the shapes made identically?  How nice it is turning out!

Dancing in the moonlight for ya, Butterfly!

Finished is indeed good and well done I will add. The crocheted star is so
warm and cozy looking. Lucky recipients!

Got it from a Crochet pattern Book in 1979: McCall's Super-Book of Afghans.
Named: Star Quilt Afghan. SIL asked NOT to buy all the diff yarns at once
but as I made other afghans to use some of each skein in her afghan...thus
it taking soooooo long to complete. She helped me lay out the design when
she was here over the holidays.
Not much help.but I wonder if the Copyright has expired? I did find it in
Old Time Crochet Patterns and designs 1984 so it has to be an OLD Pattern.

Butterfly (Thanks for the compliments)

They're all diamonds and then sewn (or crocheted--I Like sewing
better--looks nicer) into the star and then the 3 white ones are sewn to
complete each block.

Butterfly (DD was very pleased with the quilt)

It's gonna be hard to part with the afghan cause I've worked on it forever

I thought you might.
DO you crochet at all?

Butterfly (Wondering if she CAN share the pattern..would it be like a quilt
pattern that has been around forever)

I got a chair with wheels on it this time.   I sold my Sweet16HQ.  I did not
have as much room in my new sewing room for her and I wanted someone to
enjoy her. I sold it on Ebay, made a great sale ($$$$) and the buyer paid
the shipping ($450) to Washington State.  So now my quilting will be the
part I like best, piecing and I will leave the quilting for someone else to
do.  I figure all the money I got for the HQ will keep me in quilting for a
long time.

Good to see you are still fluttering around,

Linda in Tx
