Test-a-little-lating Stars

What does test-a-little-lating stars mean?
 It means I was late getting the testing/sewing done on my friend Amy's quilt pattern....
I did the test-a-little-late !
Amy @ Sew Incredibly Crazy wrote her first quilt pattern, 
and I was one of the lucky ones she chose to be a pattern tester.

 This is the first quilt I made, YES, I made two !  And...I don't like to make 2 of the same anything ! 
But, Amy's Watkins Star goes together so fast....I cut this out and sewed it up in ONE evening. 
So, my question to myself is, "why did I wait so long before I made it" ?
The instructions are clear and precise and the pictures by themselves almost tell you how to sew it together.   
 I think this will be my go-to pattern....you know I love stars anyhow ! 
My quilt guild makes quilts and receiving blankets for a community service project called, Wee Care.  
The quilts are sent to the hospital and distributed to children in need...... 
this would be a great quilt pattern to make for that and for gift giving.

Here is a little peek of the second one I made.
 I think I will wait to reveal it in September during the "See You in September" blog hop. 
I want to add some borders to it and I have to buy more of the background fabric to complete that part.
Thank you for letting me make your pattern Amy...you are an incredible STAR !

Have a great day and God bless you.
