I started my fall classes yesterday at Cut Up and Quilt with the Log Cabin Star Tabletopper by Marci Baker and Sara Nephew. I was excited to see the fabric choices each quilter had chosen and I wasn't disappointed. Elsie chose batiks in warm and cool colors for her star. We worked on getting all of the logs cut precisely and a diamond and one of each of the two triangles pieced so that they could take it home and have models of what needs to be done to finish the quilt.

Denise decided to strip piece hers once she got her fall themed pieces cut, so she had all of her diamonds to this stage. We laid out the dark that will be next to the diamonds once the triangles are completed to get an idea of how it will look.

I have thoughts spinning in my head for a new project I'm dying to start, as well as a mystery project I need to get back to, but I need to focus on painting today. I got a little painting done last night after class and am going to head out soon to paint some more. I have a new Sampler Club beginning Tuesday night making the Circle and Spin quilt plus a Sampler 23 Club tomorrow night. I don't have time to get in trouble this week!
