A lovely surprise

When I returned home yesterday, waiting for me in my mailbox was a package from the Kansas City Star.
To my delight,  I received a copy of the "MY STARS II" book.  Several months ago they put out a notice, to everyone interested,  to submit a quilt that was made from a list of blocks that the KC STAR published over the years in their newspaper.  Back in April of this year they published the first book and because of it's popularity, they decided to do a volume II.  Well, it's out and ready for anyone that would like to order one.  I submitted my Snow Trails quilt made from the snails trail block.  It was chosen to be in the book, which was a delight in itself.

What was fun is that when I was looking through the book I felt it would make a wonderful sampler quilt using all the blocks.  The snails trail quilt I made was from the block they published back in November 1935.   I was born in November - just not 1935!  Isn't it funny how things sometimes work out?

If you would like a copy of the book, you can order it through
