Seeing Stars...


I am constantly seeing stars right now, I am hooked on making them & I take my little shoebox full of supplies everywhere I go.

Shoebox

I am making slow but steady progress on my hand piecing & it's nice to finally work with some fabrics that I have been saving for a while. So far I have 5 finished blocks & four more that are halfway there.

I think the blue poppies are my favourite block so far, but there is some stiff competition.

Are these hand pieced like hexagons? The stitching looks too neat for hand piecing but maybe your stitching is neater than mine!

You're amazing! I love sewing but I am so useless at it! I think I love that sea green one the best! Stunning! *s*

They look lovely! I'm so addicted to hand sewing at the moment...

Sorry to be a dumbo but how do you know where the seam goes if you don't paper piece? Do you mark it with a pencil or pins? I really love these triangles and would like to make them my summer holiday project but I need to know what to do!

It's going to be beautiful! I couldn't think of more stunning fabrics to use.

Ohh you are almost tempting me to give it a go .... soooo not patient enough for hand piecing! Might just need to keep admiring from afar.

I love the blues you've got in there already so keep up the good work as I can't wait to see the finished quilt!

Beautiful. Blue is my favourite colour and I love your fabric choices.
Happy stitching!

It's a close call and I would absolutely agree on the poppies but for the bit of Liberty(?) I keep squinting at tucked in on the right of that top pic. Exquisite. Everything. As always!

Just found your blog. What an inspiration treasure trove! I especially love this quilt.
