Good Morning Quilters! April is almost over, and we have had our last snow storm. I think we have. The house finches have nested on the ledge over the front porch, in their usual spot. In 2016 I wrote on my blog about them, and there has been a nest in the same spot almost every year since then. The nest building activity has almost finished, and soon there will be eggs. I get a good view from the computer desk in the office which looks out onto the front porch.
The LeMoyne Star quilt UFO that I started working on again in early February is now a quilt top! Yeah! Here is a picture of the completed top on the design wall:
After I finished, I decided to stitch around the outside edge very close to the edge, because some of the outside edges may be on the bias. I tried to cut all of the edge triangles so that the outside edge side would be straight of grain, but I wasn't sure that all of them were. I really enjoyed finishing this quilt, as I learned a lot about LeMoyne Star blocks. I relied on a Youtube video by Edyta Sitar (video here) The quilt kit is from Moda's Collection for a Cause series - Warmth and part of the sales of each kit go to support Habitat for Humanity. The quilt kit was issued in 2012.
