You just might get what you wish for if you wait long enough! And waiting might be a good thing. Remember that ole saying that "good things come to those who wait!!! WEll, good things came my way!!!!!
When you get what you waited for it might include A LOT of this!!! Sewing on papers and THEN removing all those papers!!!
Because you waited there may be a TON of ironing and ironing AND ironing!!!!!! Lots of little tiny pieces to this project!
But look what you got for all that waiting!!! In January '2010' , I really really wanted to do this Susan Garman block of the month when EVERYONE else was doing it, after all, I am sooooo crazy for STARS!!! In fact, it was so popular Nedra over at the Cactus Needle set up a blog dedicated to just this STAR CRAZY block of the month that was featured on the Quilt Show! I think I had other things going at the time and I just didn't bring myself to buy the $225.oo+ kit at the time!! I was soooooo crazy over the fabrics in this project that I really wanted the kit. Could you hear my whining way over there in St. George Nedra?????
Well LO and BEHOLD Quilters Special had a 'special' on this monthly kit back in January of THIS year for 1/2 off!!! Yep....'cause I WAITED, I got this kit.....fabric (which was 23 yards and averaged around $5.oo-ish per yard.....printed pattern and all for
around $12o.oo-ish. KAPOW!!! What a deal!!!!!!
One of my favorite blocks so far! Isn't this amazing what I got for just waiting!!!! I have 6 months of this quilt done! Only 6 more monthly units left to do!!! YIPPEEEEE!!!!
DANG....I LOVE THIS QUILT.....'cause after all, I'm allllll about STARS!
