A new bed quilt

It was decided I aught to take some time to work on something just for me. I don't often get the chance now. I seem to have been a bit obsessed with broken stars recently so that is what I have started on. The middle 8 diamonds are done, and the strips prepared for 3 more. The whole quilt will need 32, who knows when I will have time to make those. It does seem to have quitened that obsession though and I am really looking forward to quilting it. I am thinking of making it a very wide but not verry long, maybe 120" wide and about 80" long. I have noticed the cats taking up an increasing amount of quilt and the 100" wide one simply isn't big enough. To extend the quilt like that I think I will need to add extra borders to two sides. This seems an ideal oportunity to add more stars. I can't help it, I love stars.

OK have you been reading my mind?

That star looks really cheerful.

PS can you do lunch at some point?

Ah is that where this annoying little obsession came from. I know who to blame now :)

Yes I would think so, a Thursday would work for me. I think my ferfab email should be working.

I like it very much.

Beautiful ginger cat seems to be sulking because you've not finished it yet though.

Heimdal is probably sulking because I was in his bedroom when he was trying to sleep. I also insisted he not sit on the new quilt. Obviously unreasonable of me.
