Star Quilt-Along, week 5

So, it's clear that I need to iron this. Again. I did iron it once, but my iron is having issues. If it has water in it, it just steams. The function to turn it off doesn't work, so I can either have a shoddy ironing job or burned fingers. You can see which one I chose.
The pink and white leaves are Max & Nobie for Moda. I think the line is just called Pink and Brown. Very apt name. The darker pink is just some scrap I found in the bag I'm pulling stuff from for my pink and brown Ohio Star quilt. I thought it matched well enough.
I'm sure you're sick of these block of the month blocks. I'll try to put something more interesting on here next. If I can find it.
As an aside, I have five boys and only two girls, so why on earth are most of quilts pink? My poor boys have to choose which girly quilt to snuggle under. They have their own boyish quilts, but those mostly stay upstairs. The ones that are in my quilt basket are pretty much all girly. Poor guys. I'll have to do something about that. Jill sent me all those great boy prints. Hmmm . . . (strokes chin) Have a fun day!

I also have more girly stuff than boy stuff. Have you seen the new rocket fabric? I think it is by free spirit. I really love it and wish Jack were a little younger. Though I may be able to convince him of some jammie pants out of it.

Hi, my name is Julia and I just happened upon your blog and saved it. I have no idea where I came across it but I'm glad I did! Glad to know there are other people who have lots of kids and love to craft! I can't quilt yet but I'm trying desperately to learn how. Too bad you're not my neighbor, I'd stop by and watch! LOL
Anyway, I have 10 children myself, so I wonder how you find the time and energy to do all you do! It's awesome though so keep it up!
You can check out my blog if you want: I'm going to be starting (trying to start) a quilt with one of the patterns from Anka's Treasures "Livin Large" book. Wish me luck! I'm so excited to see someone who has as many kids as you, craft as much as you do! Inspiration...

I am amazed at all you get done also and I am your mother. I certainly did not get all that quilting done with my 7 kids but I did do some. I love the block of the month because I am so curious to see how each turns out. This pink one is so feminine. Keep up the good work, sweetie.
