Whoop, Whoop or Little Whoop?
The feathered star is one I hand-pieced about 20 years ago, drawing around each little plastic template. I showed this in a previous post with a lot of violets that I'd pieced around it. Today I finished piecing the Lincoln's Platform blocks and put the rest of the top together. I think the top is done now, but could change my mind. If I had more of the black on white clock and gauges print, I'd probably add a white and violet border on the right and bottom, but I've used all but a few tiny scraps of that fabric, so I can't do that.
It was a good day for sewing since we had loud, roaring winds all day. I turned on the stereo, but even it didn't drown out the howling winds. We know we are surrounded by mountains, but they were obscured by the dust today. Some of our good friends headed out for a week in Alabama a couple of days ago, and I really wish we could have gone along with them!
I'm linking to Sara's blog. If you visit her post, you can also visit some other people who accomplished lovely things this week.
