More maverick stars

Yay! After about three hours I finished nine more stars. Only 182 more to make! Yikes, that sounds bad, but I have to think long term, right? I really would like a bed sized quilt out of these, without a border. For a 84x90 quilt, I figured it would take 210 of these six inch blocks.

Piecing a quilt like this definitely teaches me patience. Slow and steady wins the race. Like the tortoise.

...speaking of the Tortoise and the Hare, I cleaned out a shelf for baby Emma's library at Mamaw's house. I just can't wait to get her in my lap and read some of those wonderful Little Golden books.

Katie the Kitten was my favorite from my son's childhood, along with When Dog was Little, Over in the Meadow, and many more. Such fun memories. Any other grandparents out there have a favorite book you read to your grandchildren?

Oh, I remember how beautiful the illustrations were that were done by Eloise Wilkins, I think. That named just popped into my head when I saw your collection. Enjoy that little one !

I may start a block per day today. Hmmmmm....

I'll have to look up that illustrator. I bet I will recognize some of her drawings.
