Seeing Gray Stars...some pressing and sewing tips

What you cannot see is the tiny thread between each of these three units. I keep them together during the pressing and piecing process.
This works so well for me.
Before I knew it I had 49 stars made!
 I have all my birthday quilts made and they are at the longarmers getting quilted. So I am free to sew on the Orca Bay quilt #2 that I want to make in pinks and grays.
My only issue is that I love each of those colors separate too. My containers are already overflowing with enough units to make two more quilts.
I also have received the last of my washed neutral 2 1/2" strips for the swap at Quiltvilleswap on Yahoo. I cannot wait to begin swapping these out. Light neutrals are my favorite! Next month we are swapping dark neutrals. That should really be a very interesting swap!

It will be interesting to see Orca Bay in such a soft palette. Most of them have been so bold.

This is a great color combination.
The tip of the thread is great, thank you for the show.
Many greetings Gitta
