Christmas in July - Week 2

I finished the five stars for my Christmas Stars, and decided that instead of the setting of the original quilt, I was going to set them with the second block from this quilt. So I sewed the strip-sets and four-patches for that...just need to pick a solid.

I still have a ton of charms leftover, including all the skaters. I can't bear to cut them. I'm thinking about cutting the remaining charms into strips and doing a piano key border. Or maybe piecing them together for the back.

The kaleidoscope is coming along nicely. I'm piecing the wedges together - by next week it'll be finished blocks.
My next project is a little table runner from Pieces From My Heart. Yeah, it's been in my stash for a while. I bought it when we lived in Washington, saw that it had (gasp!) embroidery and shoved it on a shelf for a while. I need to count charms to see if I can make it at least one ornament longer.
