Las Vegas Here I Come

I’m getting ready to head to Las Vegas for my annual retreat with 34 friends from around the country.  My sister Melinda is here from Marietta, GA and will be going with me.  We leave bright and early tomorrow morning driving from Seal Beach, CA to Palace Station in Las Vegas.  The local quilt shop hop is going on, so we may make a stop or two along the way.

This year as a thank you to the organizer Barb, we are each making a 12” batik star block for her.  I think she’ll not only be surprised be very excited to receive a quilt from all of us.

Here’s mine……

Double Aster

I’ve been wanting to make this block for a long time so this was the perfect opportunity.  I found the instructions at Quilterscache.  If you haven’t visited the website, you’re really missing something, what a blessing it is.  This block is called Double Aster.  The cutting is a little tedious but the result is worth it. 

Stay tuned!



Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love knowing that I'm not alone, blogging into thin air.
