Sewing Progress over Thanksgiving Week

At first I didn't think I had gotten much sewing done this past week and a half.  I felt like I spent more time cleaning the house and getting ready to host Thanksgiving instead of sitting at the sewing machine. But once I sat down and looked at everything I had made, I realized I got quite a bit done during my little bursts of sewing.

First, I finished the star blocks for this Citizen Sam quilt.  Then I basted, quilted, and bound it.
It is ready to be turned in.

For the back I pieced together all the star fabrics I had left.

 The second project I worked on was my Starry Eyed Quilt.  I got all 10 star blocks pieced.
 I even sewed left overs together into quarter triangle blocks. They are a little wonky, but they look wonderful to me.  I am already thinking of a small quilt to turn them into.

Last I got my Diamond Star quilt quilted.  It still needs a binding put on. When I get that done I will show the whole thing.  It would be on already, but I can't find the blue fabric I want for the binding.  I must have used it in another project. I suppose that is what happens when quilt tops sit 10 years before you quilt them. Now I have to go shopping for something that matches, but I am ok with that.  :)
