Happy and Scrappy on Sunday

It is a Sunday, but also a Saturday as I get to stay home tomorrow in my pajamas and sew some more.  Ah happy day!
So in celebration of an extra day at home, I sewed these blocks together.  They were all done as part of RSC15, but needed to be sewn together.  Maybe a nice wide border and a soft snugly flannel backing?
The extra blue pinwheels got a narrow white border before the extra blue spikes.  I found a big piece of dark blue in the scrap bin, but it might be too dark.  Maybe something lighter or brighter?  
These are the rest of the geese from crumbs.  I'd better do some math and figure out how long they should be.  Perhaps a narrow white strip between each row of geese.  I am thinking of an up down  arrangement, maybe with a transition to look like the geese are flying around the corners?  I'd better get out the graph paper and start some planning.

I was thinking of doing star blocks for RSC16, I already picked it for our quilt guild's BOM I think we're doing these in April.

I like the star quilts so very much...I need to try this block. Other day I saw similar blocks that also called my attention, maybe I just need to give it a try.

I love how those stars move around. That seems like just the thing to tickle a little person as they lay snuggled with that great quilt.

Well, they're both fabulous, but I especially love that top one. Very, very cute. What a great scrapbuster too!

I like the crumb geese as border for the pinwheel quilt. Both projects are coming together beautifully.
