One of my goals this year was to complete six Quilts of Valor. I'm still hoping to reach that goal, but I may not, and that's fine. I plan to continue making them, so I'll keep going. The third one should have been completed by the end of June, and I'm still working on it. It's a pattern called Steve's Star from one of Judy Martin's books, Piece 'n Play Quilts. I think I used every star fabric I own in the quilt, lol, so I'm calling it Stars Over America. I drafted a paper piecing pattern for the stars in EQ, and it does take time to put these together, more time than I realized. The top half is all sewn together now, but I still have most of the star units for the bottom half to put together.
She is two months old now and just beginning to smile at faces. Her mom and dad let her come up this weekend for a slumber party, and she was all tuckered out by the time we took her home on Sunday. Can't wait to see her again!
