August Goal

My 4" x 5" Anthology blocks weren't part of any goals, aside from a personal challenge to get them finished. These are the final seventeen. I'm thinking I will wait until my next quilt retreat where there is plenty of room to lay all 182 blocks out and do some rearranging before sewing them all together. 

So this is my design wall today. I have revisited my Rapid Fire Lemoyne stars from the Moosebay Muses stash archives--lol! I had a stack of unfinished stars in various states of completion left over from when I taught classes using the Rapid Fire ruler. 

My favorites are the variations like this framed star. 

My One Monthly Goal for August is to come up with a quilt top suitable for a QOV using some of the LeMoyne Stars I've started putting together. I have a couple ideas from the free downloads of Block magazine courtesy of Missouri Star HERE  

If I can finish my goal, I hope to get more of these 3 inch stars made--I'd love to at least double the size that I have so far!

    I love the little 3 inchers, too.
