More flimsys for the quilting que

I did manage to get Buffalo Troubles into a flimsy stage! Yippee! I also have enough blocks to piece a lazy star top for one of the love quilts and almost enough for a different pattern for one of the other ones. All of the small triangles in Buffalo Troubles are bonus hsts from the lazy star blocks! Can you imagine? And I have to make another 100 small bocks for the third quilt. What will I do with all those bonus triangles this time? The key is to trim about every 10 blocks or 20 bonus triangles or I get discouraged - overwhelmed with all the trimming. But the top is in que for some warmer quilting weather.

And well Moose was in a playful mood this morning. I love the crossed paws- such good manners-lol!

After I piece 2 more rows for the lazy star quilts I need to seriously clean up the sewing area. DD and my best friend's son are cooking dinner for 6 of us tomorrow - how cool is that? So the table needs to be totally cleared. That hasn't happened since New Years Eve-lol

Oh and I need to make the qst for an ohio star quilt for a bday present

I like your thinking with trimming as you go. I get so overwhelmed when there are a ton of trimming to be done at the end. Love the quilt!!

I love your Buffalo quilt! The red is perfect in it. I usually break down projects like that, too, maybe in groups of ten at a time. Moose is adorable.
