Tuesday is “Eventide” update day, and I have been having a wonderful time working on this pattern. It’s a wonderful design (the Ohio Star is one of my favorite blocks), and the French General and 3 Sisters fabrics are so incredibly elegant. I’m still in the early stages…mostly chain piecing right now, but I had to stop and put together one block!
I’ll be making more of these today…and then hopefully I can finish the Ohio Star blocks soon. There’s still time to join in this sew along if you’d like. You can read all about it on Thelma’s blog!
Since I’m quite sure I have attention deficit disorder when it comes to quilting, I’ve also been making flying geese. These will be 2″ by 4″ finished, and I already have a plan for them!
I’ve also been doing a little “spring organizing.” I’ve been wanting to collect my 2 ½″ strips together since reading this post of Kim’s. This box is for Sandi Henderson and Amy Butler fabrics.
This box contains Fig Tree fabrics along with Lecien.
And don’t they look great all stacked up! I think I have enough strips to fill one more box–hopefully I can get that organized today! It’s going to be so nice to have the strips all organized and in one place ready for projects. I’ll be tackling my charm square scraps next!
Oh, and thank you, thank you, thank you! I just noticed that I have reached over 1500 followers–I think a giveaway is in order–soon! Have a wonderful day!
Sherri, those fabrics in that star block are gorgeous as well as the block!
I too, suffer from attention deficit disorder when it comes to quilting. About ten things in the works at the moment. Now it's making my head spin!!
Love your flying geese. Do you anything special to get your points right on track? Or are you just that good 🙂

The star is lovely – your choice of fabrics is just gorgeous! I so understand about quilters ADD – I have it too! It's hard not to with all the fabulous fabrics and patterns out there – so many quilts and so little time!!
I do love Ohio Stars. Perhaps it's because I live in Ohio. I love Kim's strip organization tips. Now if I can just make myself do it.
Quilter's ADD…. I have it and I'm not even looking for a treatment!!! That's one of the things that makes quilting so much fun!

Sherri the fabric ranges you are working with are just so beautiful…
The fabrics you chose are beautiful! I've always loved the Ohio Star.
1500 followers is amazing!

I bet you have lots more people that check your blog everyday. 1500 would be the tip of the iceburg. I can't imagine not see all the great things you are working on. I guess I get my quilting vicariously. I am very slow.
Congratulations Sherri! I would follow you twice if I could 😀
I love those boxes of strips, may have to steal them somehow!
And your blocks and sewing are all so perfect, they are always a real treat to gawk at, thanks for sharing.
Your Eventide block is fantastic! I always love red and I love stars…perfect combo you hit upon!
Ohhhh Sherri… it's beautiful!!
Congratulations! I love this fabrics!
Hugs from Spain,

You are so fast, and all your piecing is so perfect! I saw Kim's post on that, too, and thought it was a great idea!

Love from Texas! ~bonnie
Love your start on Eventide, rich & elegant, again a wonderful project.
I'm crazy about your Ohio Star…great fabrics! Oh those flying geese are wonderful!
I like your 2 1/2 strip organization. I am going to do some strip swaps in the next few months so I need to get organized.
The strips look great in the boxes. Thank you for the links. Those were good ideas!

Great idea for jelly rolls & honey buns! It's much more user friendly to have them unrolled & ready to go.
Your Eventide blocks look great! You know I'm particularly interested in your project since we are using the same families of fabric, but I kept the blue! I can hardly wait to see more, thanks so much for participating in the sew along!
