|When I decided to do this pattern (Star Struck by Bonnie Hunter) I discussed it with my DH. I said I think I'll make all the light stars one fabric, and he thought it would be better if they were scrappy. Then I said I think I'll make all the dark stars scrappy, but each star a different color, and he thought it would be better if they were all different colors. more scrappy that way. I agreed, and I asked him when it was laying out on the table in process of being basted what he thought. He looked with a thoughtful look on his face and then he apologized, lol. His ideas were sound, but as I realized before some of my darks are too light and some of my lights are too dark, those were my choices not his, so if it isn't a favorite I take responsibility. Actually, it is growing on me and it may not be a favorite, but I think I'll like it ok, at lease the light stars are there to be seen. It was a bear to baste, I don't know of any creases on the back, so I think it will be ok. It was so heavy with the flannel back that I just laid it on the table (a 3 foot by 6 foot rectangle) and smoothed. I didn't use any clips just basted what was on the table and then rearranged it 8 times and basted away. It was an all day job, but it's done and now on to the wrestling and the quilting. If this wasn't 'fun' it would be 'work'.|
Update on Iphone: So far, I'm loving it. I have my texting and email set up, I've added emoticons, which are considered an international language in the settings. I've added my favorite sites, Google Reader, Flickr , etc. to my desktop, plus a few more free apps. I even semi-watched two movies yesterday on Netflix while I basted my quilt. I think we are bonding just fine so far.
PS I even talked on it a few times and it sounded just fine. Another biggie for me is the speaker and so far no complaints. I think it is going to be a winner with me.
PPS Speed dialing was something I missed even though it has the Siri (voice) and yesterday I found a $00.99 icon that gives me speed dialing. Now, I'm really a happy camper.
