Nantucket stars

It was a bumpy road in the beginning but I finally started my Nantucket quilt !

I ordered a Nantucket quilt kit a couple of weeks ago & when it arrived it was missing 1- 3/4 yard piece of  background fabric . Also I did not like some of the fabrics in the kit so I had to order a few more fabrics .  Once I had all of my fabric I started making my stars Sunday.  These are big ... 15 1/2" and so easy to make . Did I tell you how much I love this Midwinter Reds fabrics !

Now onto making the 180  9 patches .

My hubby &  2 daughters  had  a birthday party for me Saturday .   So much fun with all my family & friends .  My actual b-day is not till Friday the 15th so I am not 60 yet.

A group of them went in together and surprised me with a gift of riding in a Hot Air  Balloon in Napa  !  How Exciting !
