Of course there is no such thing as the BIG half. Half means equal. Most of us always want to be MORE equal, like those animals in Animal Farm.
How on earth does this relate to quilts? In the photo above, I'm getting ready to quilt the BIG half of my quilt.
The star blocks were made from leftovers from Bonnie Hunter's Celtic Solstice Mystery Quilt. I changed the size of the quilt, and didn't end up making the pieced border.

How am I doing this without using free-motion quilting? I'm TURNING THE QUILT. Yes, really.
The process is a little tedious, but it gets the job done. And I like outline quilting on a reproduction quilt like this.

In other news, it is starting to feel like spring here. I'm not counting winter out yet, but the robins and cardinals are back and my tulips are coming up.

I hope you're enjoying the weather, wherever you live.
P.S. I'm linking up with Myra at Busy Hands Quilts and Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts. Check out all the great stuff!
