In the meanwhile, I joined the "From Marti and Me" club to expand my use of Marti Michell's incredible templates. Nuts 'n Bolts Needleworks in Woodland Park sponsors the FMM club each month. The first project I started is one I've had on my "quilter's dream sheet" for a long time: Seven Sisters Simplified.

Marsha did a great job teaching this technique. Using MM's templates really makes this complicated-looking block easy! Here is my first "Seven Sisters" block:
I'm thinking I'll use my overgrown stash of Civil War reproductions to make the rest of the blocks for this stunner.
I'm behind on the Quilt Block a Day project, so excuse me while I go whip up some more Bethlehem Star blocks!
