More of what I've been up to lately!

I tried to include this in my last post but either Google or I am having issues.
Here are some pictures of the ways that I've been putting some of the fabric from one of my previous posts to use.
I'm pretty sure that I won't be doing the large block in the center of this one. One of my friends suggested that I put my favorite block, Mariner's Compass in the center instead. I'm still thinking about that one.........Any suggestions or opinions welcome!

This is the only block that I have finished so far...........

This is the $5 quilt that I'm in once a month at a local shop........
I was trying to post a picture of the complete pattern but Google and I still seem to be having issues and I can't drag my pictures once I've uploaded them. (Is anyone else having that problem?) These are a few of the blocks in the quilt.

I used to have a horrible time with a square in a square but, thank goodness, I've overcome that and they go together quite well for me now.
Besides this I'm working on my Jo Morton quilt and really trying to get the Feathered Star finished for the show.
That's all I have to share for now. Thank you very much for visiting!

Happy Quilting!

What I've been up to lately

On my header is a picture of my unquilted Feathered Star. It's still not 100% finished but it's well on it's way. I entered it in our local quilt show with the goal of finishing it. It has been in the works for 13 years or more (I've lost track of the time).
Here's my progress so far...........

The quilt has to be finished by the 28th. I've been working on it every day this week. I procrastinated as usual and now I'm under the gun. WISH ME LUCK!!!!
Happy Quilting!
