Maybe next Christmas?

Some time ago, our local quilt shop asked me to help one of the staff with CorelDraw so she could improve their newsletters. What fun! She was an eager learner, a delight to work with. 

The shop paid me in gift certificates. I bought a new book, but then pondered what to do with the rest of it. Then, a couple weeks ago I was looking for a pattern for someone else and found one called "Splendid Stars" that I liked myself. 

The LQS had a Christmas quilt on display with a lovely wintery border by Jayson Yenter (In the Beginning, no link. I may have bought the last yards left on the planet)... so putting the two together, I have a king-size in mind... and used the remaining certificates for the fabrics below. Maybe it will be done for next year?

What a lovely bunch of fabrics, that include YENTER!!! Great choice of fabrics! Can't wait to see what you do with it all. Splendid Stars looks like a fabulous pattern to use these fabrics with.

Oh googness, it's a pretty pattern and all that luscious fabric will make it stunning!! Good luck and don't start too many other projects -- we all want to see this one done! 8-))
