I worry that someone may for example throw beer on the quilt at the local county fair. Quilts are not held in high regard out here in the country.
    Well jeez that would be terrible if someone threw beer at your quilt! I didn't know you live out in the middle of nowhere, so I guess if the safety of your quilt is in jeopardy I will not come and get you! But I still think your quilt deserves a big fat blue ribbon!

    I have been continuing to struggle with Angela Walter's braided star. The cutting instructions are wrong if you expect to keep any points.
    I am planning on doing two in different colorways and am very glad I didn't cut them both out at once.
    I also am continuing FMQ on a curved log cabin, it continues to get bigger and bigger while the quilted area seems to shrink.
    I am feeling a bit frustrated. LOL
    I managed to get this top together, it is a bit poofy in the center but most of my points matched. When I get a backing for it I will get it quilted and post a picture.
    It is constructed a bit like the braided star Jenny did up to a point. I will use Jenny's method to the other one I am doing.
