All that got done yesterday was cutting.  Since these 3 blocks have repeats of the light colors I will have to rearrange blocks to space them apart.  My daughter and I were wrapping up all of the things related to my website for the rest of the day because she is leaving soon. 
Here is another mock-up created yesterday to place in my pop up shop (which closes late in the day on Oct. 25).  I had 3 more sales over the weekend so today is shipping day.

More blocks........

I added 7 more large squares and 5 more stars since yesterday.   I have to find fabrics for 3 more stars and then I will rearrange the blocks.  

Rain, rain, rain....after almost a month and a half of dry weather we got a lot of rain yesterday.  I would guess that it was over 5.5" and maybe way over that.  My rain gauge was running over yesterday morning and it holds 2".  I emptied it and we got another inch before it got dark.  Then it rained hard again and there was 2" more in the guage.  The trees and perennials are probably loving it as they prepare for winter.

Layout time......

After a social afternoon I got to the design wall to layout this quilt.  The star blocks are the Kite block that I cut with my die cutter.  If I made one more row on the side and one more on the end it would start and end with a star block on every row.  I have enough of the alternate block fabric to make this larger.

This is what you see when you get closer to the quilt.

For the cellphone readers of my blog: we realize the 2 links I have made, one below the header and one on the right sidebar don't show up for you so I'll give you the link to my new website and store here.

The next project........

I have had this project in a box for quite awhile.  I hadn't committed to cutting that beautiful batik into the alternating blocks.  I think I'm ready now though.  Here is the post where the blocks are laying on it.  I had 23 pieced blocks on that post, there are 24 now.  With 24 alternate squares it will make a 6 x 8 layout for a quilt approximately 48" x 64".  When I get that sewn I can decide if it needs a border to become a larger quilt.

I have added a link on the right sidebar for my new website.  When you get to the website, the link to the shop is in the top right corner of the banner.  Eventually we hope to have the blog integrated into that site.  Right now we're having some technical problems with it.  Anyone who has built a website knows there will always be a few quirky situations leading up to the final product.
