Great Quilty Day

I had a great time today at a class organized by the past presidents of my quilt guild. They treated us to a relaxing day of sewing, eating, laughing, and being waited on.  
We were sewing variations of a wonky cross block. I sewed my cross blocks on the diagonal, but then decided I wanted to try an asterisk block. I made a lot of asterisk blocks last year when making my Letter Quilt, and forgot how fun they are to sew. 
And then I thought the block would look like a flower if I floated the strips. So cute!  As the day wore on, my blocks became the smaller and smaller, and that was even more fun! 
I wonder what these blocks will become? Will I make more crosses? More asterisks? More floaters? More mini blocks? 
What a great day!

And tomorrow will be a great day too! 

Here at Kathy's Quilts it is Slow Sunday Stitching, but also it is May 4th and you know what that means... it's International Star Wars Day!

"May the fourth be with you"!

Looks like a fun scrappy Sew day! Funny Star Wars reference. My SIL would appreciate that. Me - not so much. Enjoy your slow stitching Sunday. As usual mine is a NO Stitching Sunday. I like to see what you are doing though.
