Scrappy Star Beginning

Mr. Q.O. was quite taken with the little quilt seen here, and dropped some hints, so I’ve started a lap quilt for him. This is the beginning of one of the blocks. It’s a fun and easy stitch, which is exactly what I want right now. At this stage, it’s approximately 10.75″. I plan on adding more rounds of squares and diamonds to this block. Then I’ll decide on the rest of the design.

I’m pressing with the iron after adding each round of squares and diamonds. I finger press as I go, so it takes only a few seconds with the iron and the pressing is done.

Baxter was 4 months old yesterday. It seems like yesterday that we brought him home. Now that he has discovered Cappy, he likes to keep it close. So close, in fact, that he sleeps on it.

  1. Takes the Carpenters Wheel concept up a few notches I’d have to say. Naturally.

  5. Dear Cathi,

    Mr. QO’s taste is GREAT! I must say, again, you work is a joy to look at.

    I think I will have to make this. What program did you use, the FREE one?

    As I finish each block, I will mail it up to you to press…LOL! The back of your work is as beautiful as the front.

    Hug Sweetie,
