Slow stitching Sunday

I must apologize for not keeping up with the old blog.  This time of year seems to get very busy.  I have finished my peony quilt and I am agonizing over the binding fabric, so it is waiting for a decision.  Once I get the binding on after the New year I will add a post about it.
Today, I am working on block seven of nine blocks that will make up a string star quilt.  It sure was fun creating these stars from scraps of fabric that the quilting world has name strings.  I need to think about how I will also incorporate the strings into the border.  Will it be a postage stamp border or maybe a piano key string border, time will tell. As for today I am enjoying a watching a Christmas movie and sipping some hot tea as a I stitch along. You can enjoy what others are stitching if you visit Kathy's Quilts.
