I See Stars

Welcome 🙂

In my last post I was really close to finishing my EPP quilt and in this post I can happily announce that it is indeed done!

After writing a while back (here) that when I look at this quilt it is the stars that leap out at me, others said that they see either the hexagons or the tumbling blocks first so I decided to change the quilt’s name from ‘Starry Night’ to ‘I see Stars’.

However, I decided not to go overboard with emphasising the stars in the quilt but I have sewn on a few mother of pearl star buttons around the outer edge of stars.

I’m so pleased it is finished. Now I can think about another hand project to do – any ideas?

Tonight I’m going to my monthly quilting group and the programme says we will be starting on making an hexagonal table mat and that we need to take 19 5 1/2 inch squares of fabric with us.

This is what I’ve selected but I have no idea what this table mat looks like so this may or may not be suitable.

Stars or Blocks

Welcome 🙂

The weather has been cooler this week and I find that I’m able to sit down and do things again. I’m so pleased that I don’t live in a hot climate as I’d never get anything done – just flake out in the shade!

I’m still doing a few wedding things but everything has quietened down a bit for now and I’m enjoying getting on with my EPP quilt although it’s still slow going!

I took it to my Thursday quilt group for the first time last week and was intrigued by people’s comments on it, it seems that we all definitely fall into two categories, those who see the tumbling blocks first and those (like me) who see the stars first.

I call it my Starry Night quilt and I’m thinking of what I can do to make it more star than tumbling block, any ideas out there? I’m quilting around the stars and I have some lovely star buttons to embellish it with when it’s all quilted and bound but any other ideas would be welcome.

I did a mini Christmas make last week,

Sweet 🙂

Just need to make sure I don’t lose it before I can use it on the tree!
