Whirling Star for Wintermint

I'm so happy I got to spend time in my sewing room yesterday. 
Sometimes, life is like a whirlwind and I get so caught up
in taking care of business, I just can't squeeze in time for fun.
BUT yesterday I just decided to put away my cares and dig into...
my Bliss fabric and work on my Wintermint.

I SO wanted to just cut enough to make one block.  
Do you get that way too, anxious to see the finished product?
Let's face it, these photos show the WORK part of quilting.
But I have to say, cutting and organizing 
make the fun go faster in the long run!

And this block came together quickly.
I admit, I'm cutting the white one block at a time...no patience for that.
This block is a cross between a star and pinwheel, I think.
Finally a finish...Whirling Star!

Now add that to my circle of geese,
and the first two blocks of WINTERMINT are done!


Makin' time for more sewing fun this week!
