Star blocks

You have any 9 1/2, 12 1/2, or 14" star blocks that you don't know what to do with?   Or, if you have a star block pattern you would like to make up a few for us, please do. We have a UFO project where we could use some star blocks.  Would like them to be patriotic with WOW background.

Other than that, we've been cutting and kitting.  If you're interested in helping on cutting strips and squares and making up some kits, sure could use your help!  I thank those who always come to the aid of kitting--without you (ok, getting caught up in acceptance speeches!)  But  truthfully, I hate taking any credit for what we do.  Those of you who step up and just "do it", bring out the fun of quilting!  Yes, we get a pretty good crowd at our sew-ins, but it's cozy and we are getting it done!!  Do know, there is always room for more.  Some come for a few hours and have to leave for one reason or another -- so come in midday, we have the place till closing.

Speaking of more help, giving a speech tonight in Itasca to recruit more of it.  Gone are the days when I was told we don't have enough Illinois piecers!!
