Houston Quilt show

I wait every year for the quilt show and it goes by so very fast! It was exciting this year because all my sewing buddies decided to make a star using a piece of the same fabric so they all coordinated and enter them into the NASA star quilt. One of the astronauts made a star block in space and they were looking for more stars to make a quilt and display it at the show. We all entered one and it was exciting to see my star put into a quilt and displayed at the show.  It is the black and white, center top. So Fun!
 The quilt show was amazing. I bought some more scraps(EEK!) a few patterns, thread, needles and a new ruler. My class was the best one ever. I learned to quilt feathers and I will have to get busy and quilt something up.
I have struggled for weeks about how to quilt this latest patriotic star but I just jumped in and started. I went with quilting it the color of the fabric. So, red, white and blue it was. I tried to be different with each color but the thread  blended so well, the quilting does not show much. It's OK. Scraps are used up so it's a win-win.
Halloween came again and my little sweetie was Pebbles from the Flinstones.  She looked very cute but was sick and did not get to go out. It was fun anyway!
My daughter bought a pattern for a little Zebra at quilt show and I am proud to say, the first little zippy Zebra is done and she did a mighty fine job, don't ya think?
