A Wonky Star

Hi! The fire is still burning on the Hualapai reservation and closing in on their airstrip. Read about it here with pictures on my post yesterday. It was 3 miles from the airstrip a few hours ago. We are having gusty winds and it is hot and dry. Close to 103 with 5% humidity. That`s bad news.

I mentioned in yesterday`s post the Red, White and Blue Blog Hop starts July 1st and I will post my blocks July 10. This is going to be lots of fun, visiting over 100 participants to look at their blocks in patriotic colors. Click the Blog Hop link in my sidebar to admire the beautiful blocks created.

This is one of my blocks. I am very fond of Wonky Stars! They are so much fun to make. I used fabric from my stash. I would have preferred to use 1950`s vintage gingham. The quality is much better than the new stuff. But when neighbors pass their fabric on to me I`ll take it!

I hope you all have a safe, happy weekend. Be careful with the fireworks next week.

  1. Hi Cathy-
    Thank you for the fire info. We wondered where up there the smoke was coming from.
    Love your block- so pretty!
    When will the winter craft show be there? I'd love to try to make it.
    Have a happy and safe holiday.

    1. Hello!

      The fire should be contained tomorrow, Friday. Tuesday 18,300 acres had burned. It started on the Buck and Doe Road between here and Truxton. This fire was nowhere on the local or Phoenix news until 2 days ago. We got our information from the Indians stopping in a local store shortly after it started. Thank you for the nice comment on my block. I getting back to quilting after a lot of years.
