AT LONG LAST!!!

Good Morning!!!
So first off I guess I should explain the post below this one, it is actually a continuation of a conversation on Facebook, so if you jumped here from facebook well then you know what the heck is going one, if not.. Miss Megan needed a baby quilt quick like and I pointed her to the quilt at the top of my blog, wrote up some quick and simple (I hope) directions and then pointed the way here to show her a rough picture of what I drew up... I can't wait to see her finished quilt. It actually made for a fun morning, yes my life is that lame.  I was thrilled to be of a little help to her, she is one of my favorite blog writer, and just in general a great person.

So, here is my bestest news... My longarm is at LONG LAST on it's way back home! According to the tracking number it is it has just left Charlotte NC. and should arrive here on the 14th. Just in time for a double class weekend. I think this was the longest 2 1/2 months of my life. Thankfully I have had the machine at the shop to use when I needed, but still it will be nice to have mine back and be able to quilt when ever I want to!

My other good news for the day, ALL medical results are in.. everything came back OK, no cancer!!! They even are going to have me wait till next year for my next Mammogram. Originally they were thinking I would have to come back and do it all over again in 6 months.

Well, I guess that's all of my good news for the day, I am off to shower as I get to spend the day with my friend Wendi, time to clean up the sewing room before Baby gets here!
Hope you all have a wonderful day,
Happy quilting.
Ginny

Cheers to continued good health! I had a breast cancer scare about a year ago (like you, all is well. Just a benign cyst), but that waiting in limbo for results is worse than purgatory.
I came here after reading Megan's plaintive cry for help on FB, and your reply. I'm looking forward to being a longtime follower!

About making the Magic Star pattern in your software: Did you try creating the "block" with the pointy rectangle, then placing that in your quilt as a vertical or horizontal block, depending on where you want it? and then you can add the "cornerstones" between the blocks. Or, add the cornerstones to the pointy rectangle blocks, as a third block. Then you would have 3 blocks total: the four-patch, the vertical pointy rectangle, and the horizontal pointy rectangle with the cornerstones. Hope that helps!
