Shenandoah Valley January block Star in the East. I believe it’s the 4th block in the
sew along. There have been so many beautiful versions of this block posted here.
I have also been trying to catch up stitching my 1718 Coverlet quilt blocks. This is such a weird quilt most of the backgrounds for the 4 1/2” blocks are made up of lots of little pieces .
When I first started I tried to make every block just as the original. I soon gave up on that idea and have now chosen to make the backgrounds a little simpler.
I don’t think it has changed the overall look of the quilt and it has sure has made life simpler for me.
On another note. It’s been freezing here and yesterday we had a light dusting of snow. Now it’s pretty sad when your Grandchildren get this excited about this much snow.
We really need to take them somewhere so they can experience the real thing.
Until the next time,
