Are you noticing that selvages have the most interesting sayings? I found this one over the weekend while working on more stars for my Sprigs and Stars quilt.
I've been agonizing over the alternate star blocks and I think I've finally decided to use a variety of soft neutrals. I found some unusual ones at a quilt store in Bend. I'm going to eliminate the one with the dark purple background; the one in the top right corner is BLAH so it's going onto the back as well. If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!~
My favorite flying geese ruler is now the Creative Grids one. What do you use?
We went to Whole Foods on Saturday and I was hoping to purchase new sourdough starter since mine was tossed last month. The store doesn't sell it but a woman overheard me asking someone and she offered to give me some of hers! Really! For a moment, I hesitated in light of Covid and our complete change of habits. But I decided that I'd wear a mask and maybe meet her at Starbucks.
We met and she gave me the best smelling starter! She even named it "Randy's Little Monster" since I guess hers grows like crazy! I thought that was so kind of her. My daughter thought I was INSANE to accept it, suspecting it might be poisoned or full of virus particles! What kind of a world have we become?
My first loaves are rising as we speak. And hopefully the oven will kill the virus! ;-)
Hope everyone has a great week. It's very chilly this morning in Central Oregon (down to about 19*) but it should warm up mid-week for a bit anyway.
Back to the stars!
