Star Cushion

What a afternoon of sewing. I am very happy to get some sewing time in. It is a precious thing to be able to sit down at the machine for a few hours with so much else happening.
Progress has been made on the new Block of the Month, which will start around the middle of the year. I can't tell you much yet but I can tell you the pattern is from a well known Australian designer, it will be a machine piecing quilt this time and it will feature Riley Blake Design fabrics in it. Is that another clue I let slip?
You may have seen me working on this star panel over the last couple of weeks and if you have seen my post for the One Monthly Goal you would know I was aim to get the star pieced and appliqued on to the back ground fabric. I managed that.


Yippie!! I was able to take it to completion on Saturday afternoon.

To this finished project. I can tick another project off my Project Uninterrupted list with this finish too. Plus it is now a workshop sample.


Until Next Time

February's One Monthly Goal Finish

It is time for February's One Monthly Goal report. The month is coming to the end and it is time to report in.
I can say I did meet this month goal to get this star sewn  together.
The before shot.

Plus I managed to stitch it on to the background fabric. Now to decide on the border so I can finish this off as a cushion I think.



That will probably be my March goal to complete it as time in March will be limited for sewing but there will be plenty of other exciting stuff happening.
 Pop over to Elm Street Quilts to see how other did with their goals this month.

Until Next Time
Keep Stitching

En Provence # 8

 I am going to show you where I am up to on the En Provence quilt.I am a little disappointed that I am not further along but there hasn't been a lot of sewing time lately.

So here we go, after stitching the first couple of blocks together I decide 6 blocks would be enough for this quilt. Knowing sewing time has been and will be short until April I think a smaller quilt will hopefully help me get closer to a finish than a large version. I counted out the blocks I had already made and set about making the balance needed.

The sashing strips will look a bit like this once I sew them together.

The plan is to finish the last two blocks then start on the sashing.
Until Next Time
Keep Stitching
