10,000 and counting

Thanks to everyone for coming by, and especially those of you who leave comments and say hello. It really does mean a lot to me! Esther was the closest I can estimate to being number 10,000, so send me your address for a little surprise when you least expect it!
I've been working on this pink, white and green quilt for James' favourite carer, but with 240 HSTs it has been slow. Tonight I completed the 30 star blocks (8.5in finished size) but I think I'll go back to my orginal idea of a 4x5 layout instead of the revised 5x6, which is getting rather large once sashing and borders are added. That will leave me with a spare 16 to do something with. The block centres are Farmers' Market again; I'd better be careful to leave enough for my own quilt!

Gorgeous stars Emma - the fabrics look beautiful together. I was thinking of doing the same style thing for my sister's baby quilt (instead of the fiddly noah quilt)but have bought primaries and whites to go with the car and truck fabric I have stashed for the centres. I have been putting it off though because the last time I did this block it was for Austy's santa sack and I remember having to ask you for help (again!) Where would I be without you ;)

Green and pink together look so fantastic. Another amazing quilt.

I don't know how you do it.
