Starburst Top and To-Do List

Can you believe it is March 3rd already?  We will be bringing out the Christmas decorations again before long.   Anyhow.....tomorrow is the parade of Starbust Quilts.  I really wanted to finish mine up, but I just could not get the quilting done on it.  I'd rather wait and do it right than to just rush through it to call it finished.  The top is, however, finished.



Now for my lofty goals for March.  There is a wonderful To-Do List linky party at Pigtales and Quilts as well as at A Lovely Year of Finishes.  Although I have many projects that I would love to finish this month, my main goals are to play with this fabric.....



.....and to do some Easter sewing with these fabrics. 



Be sure to check out both links and sign up to join in the fun.




Baseball season has started with opening day yesterday.  The day was perfect to spend at the different ball parks.  We went from beginning stages of the sport all the way up and ending with a good high school game.




 
Our spectator chairs will remain in our car now until the season is over.  I love this time of the year - especially with Daylight Savings Time stating next week.

Just love your Starburst. Our ball season doesn't start until May - love to watch a good game of kid's ball.

I love your starburst quilt! I can't wait to see it once you've quilted it.

How I hope that at least one of my grands plays baseball this summer, but I'm guessing probably not. :-(

We had sunshine for a while today ... gone now. :-(

I don't know why we don't just leave the Christmas decs up all year round, it would save time for more quilting!

I love you star quilt and especially the border. Looking forward to getting outside for baseball season here too! My oldest has had one or two clinics/training weekly since December so anxious for tryouts to be over and on with the season.

Bite your tongue! No No No to Christmas. hehehe

Your Starburst quilt is very pretty, I really like the border.

I added Starburst to my to do list! Love that border too.

Nat Palaskas said...

I bet you take hand stitching with you when you watch the games! To do list is always as long as arm length with me. And in no reason there seemed to be unplanned projects lurking along the way!

Your starburst quilt is gorgeous! I like the borders you put on it...having them on the corners and not all the way around looks really cool.

I didn't start quilting mine yet. It was nice to see all the finished quilts this morning so I can get an idea of how I want to do mine.
