Champagne Quilters update

Last week, even though the temperatures were high and the humidity uncomfortable, Ann and I were at Marg's to put a few more little stars together. Thankfully, Marg has central air and we were working in the basement.

We started with 33 stars and we need 56. They are sitting on a piece of plastic on the floor, hence the shine.

We had quite a production line going. I cut and trimmed and Ann sewed, while Marg ironed. We ended up with 46 in total so we had made 13 in the two hours we were there. Actually, the count was 14 but Marg was unhappy with one so we discarded it. This week we should be quite finished with star making and we can then concentrate on putting them together with the bigger stars. These little ones are 6.5"(unfinished) while the big stars are 12.5".
