Baby Vintage Star

My WIP - Pattern from the Giant Vintage Star pattern by Jeni Baker.
(Sorry for the crappy picture - it was late last night)
I LOVE the 2wenty Thr3e fabric line. It is SO fun.
I wanted to keep the prints large scale so I knew this pattern was perfect.
I made my squares smaller tho - for the Baby version.
It's about 45 x45.
 I just need to grab some gray thread today for quilting and it will be done!  I can't wait.

I also purchased this book.  I LOVE it.... if not just for the pretty pictures, there are several quilts in here I want to make.  Funny story - have you ever gone to the store and wanted something and it was the last one left?  However - you wanted to wait, say - to have your JoAnn's coupon to get it?  ;)  So you maybe put the item way on the bottom shelf and behind some other items, in hopes it will be there when you return.  Well, I went to JoAnn's and saw this book, but I, too, wanted to wait.  When I went back, I couldn't find it.  I knew where it was the last time, front and center on the top shelf, and there were a few copies.  I hunted high and low.  Finally I found it...tucked on the very bottom shelf, hidden in the back row behind some knitting books.  So - if this was your book that you wanted to save for later when you had your coupon - I am sorry.  I bought it.... with my coupon. :)
 I truly am sorry - I really wanted it and I'm glad to have it in my hot greedy hands. 

I will have pictures soon of my Baby Vintage Star quilt!
