I have been enjoying this year's Let's Get Acquainted Blog Hop by Plum & June! There are so many talented people participating. I have added all them to my Bloglovin' feed and each new week I have been rewarded with great posts filled with gorgeous quilts! I am in the lineup for a post introducing myself and my work during the last week of the blog hop. You don't want to miss out on the fun! For the full schedule click on the first link.

Between doing dishes and cutting the lawn, and running my kids to their friends' homes, to baseball games and practices and swim team practices and meets.... I have found some time to work on the quilting for my Oh My, Scrappy Stars! quilt.
I tied and hid the last knot for the quilting of the neutral background this morning! Whoop, whoop!
After quilting the background from edge to edge, I trimmed and bound the quilt last week.
Up next... I quilted around each of the nine star blocks.
I then quilted the space between the points of the stars to complete the background quilting. That was extremely time consuming. Lots of knots to tie and bury in the batting!
Before I begin to quilt the stars, I must finish up the instructions for assembling the rows and post those instructions on the quilt along page. So that is my next task!
If you are interested in making this quilt, the free pattern and instructions can be found here.
