I really like the color combination of this block. I worked on this block during quilt retreat and it seems I had troubles with this one even though I tried to take extra steps to get the fabric in the right areas. My first boo-boo was a 'happy' mistake.... I switched the light and dark on the center star block. I liked the results and left it. It looks like a sweet little sunflower. Happy mistake, I'm gonna leave it. But not all mistakes are happy..... check out the outer border on my 'Soldiers Ladies Aid Society' block..... there's a triangle of red where it's supposed to be black. Arrrrrrg! I haven't corrected it yet.... I am not looking forward to taking out the teeny tiny stitches in the seams... I will fix it. Just not today... I'm going to go and cry in my coffee and get ready for a super busy weekend...

Have a wonderful week! Remember to post your progress on the Civil War Diary Quilt Group on Flickr.
I will be working on 'Bidding Goodbye' out of Rosemary's book next. Hope that you have a great weekend! Tonight is my 35th class reunion, geez where did the time go! It'll be fun to go since the last one I went to was my 10th. Then on Sunday I get to spend the day at the state fair. Love the fair! Hope you have a wonderful weekend too!
Happy quilting and perfect stitches to you!
