Mini-Group Day

Today is my wonderful mini-group. This is a group of 8 ladies who get together in each other's homes to sew and eat and chat. Love this group to pieces!!! We usually bring some kind of handwork and today I decided to try to get some cutting done. These 8 stars are from the Jo Morton book, Hearthside Stars. I am doing them as a 3-blocks-a-month through my local quilt shop. I have 5 more to make to get caught up before the June stars are ready. I will take my rotary cutter and cut away while we "solve the world's problems"!!! This quilt will eventually go to my younger son. His condo is browns, golds, beiges, and--did I say--browns??? My older son would like a blackish, grayish, maroonish quilt. So am looking for something that could pump up those colors. Any ideas??

I love these warm colors!
Maybe teal with the black/gray/maroon? Or something quirky and vivid, like lime or orange?

I love browns and golds - the stars look great! Have fun at your mini-group today!

Aren't small groups the best? So much fun and fellowship.

Your blocks are going to make a nice quilt for your son's home-- perfect color combo for his request.

The other requests sound so dreary---any chance of sneaking in some blue or gold there?

I am a big fan of Jo and her fabrics and quilts. This is going to be a beauty!
