Design Wall Monday

I'm joining up with Patchwork Times  on her Design Wall Monday Post. Accuquilt came out with some new dies fall of 2013 and the Hunter Star was one of them. I've never made a Hunter Star quilt before so decided to try out the die. It took me about 40 minutes to cut out the pieces for 12 blocks. It works really well and goes together easily.
Just when you think spring may be here you get something like this:
We woke up yesterday morning snow. It was a heavy wet snow and by afternoon it was all gone and we had rain. Today is overcast with more rain tomorrow and Wednesday. I knew I shouldn't have washed windows last month it was just asking for trouble.
I'm off to find something for borders for the Hunter Star Quilt. Soon as taxes are done I should be around more often.

A Quick Visit

Just wanted to stop in and let you know I'm still here. Have once again gotten over a sinus infection and bronchitis and have been playing in the sewing room. Accuquilt came out with some new dies last year and I tried out the Hunter Star die this last week. Having never made this quilt, but having quilted many for other people, it was a nice surprise to see how easy it is to put together. If you have an Accuquilt product I would recommend this die. Next I am trying scraps and I'll let you know how I like that look.
