Stars in My Eyes

Any quilting or sewing this weekend? The answer for me is a resounding "Yes!"

I made two star blocks from a fat quarter of Echo - Lotta Jansdotter received at the Charlotte Modern Quilt Guild for a swap. The top block is "Shooting Star" and the bottom block is "Martha Washington Star".

Isn't Martha Washington a cool block with the windmill in the center?

Hmmm I wonder which blocks made with one of the companion fabrics I will receive in the swap?

Do these companion fabrics talk to you?


















Finishing up the latter part of my time at the Sew-In I sewed the Jungle Jungle charms together for another tote. The center of each block is a lined pocket for a cell phone. I can't wait until this bag is finished. The fabric is just too cute!



Things to be grateful for today: 
  • My husband who had a Sunday off so we could go to church together.
  • Fun day with quilting friends from the guild yesterday.
  • Wonderful friends that gather together last evening for dinner and games.
  • Warm house as the temperature continues to drop with rain that is pouring and possibly turning to flurries this evening.

  1. I really like the Martha Washington block too. The Jungle Jungle fabric is cutie. It will make a wonderful bag. Sounds like you have had a full and fun week-end. We are to receive "wintery mix" tonight and tomorrow--brrrrr.
