I saw a picture similar to my quilt on Pinterest but couldn't find the pattern. Using the picture as my inspiration, I made up my own wonky stars and set them randomly. I used pure linen for the first time as the background fabric and love the end result. It is backed with a piece of Alison Glass fabric that was just too pretty to cut. It is quite a small quilt and will likely end up being a wall hanging.
Each month we got another set of directions. I behaved for the first few rounds, but then I went rouge! Did finish with their last directions. My card trick was hard as of course it didn’t include the weird size I needed. Again did some outline to make the piecing stand out and filled in all the background with a small meander.
This was a panel from a friend who like me just moved to a retirement community. However, she is not adjusting well and has started give away some of her sewing supplies. She said her little place has no room for all her supplies. So, I finished this panel and as she is part of our quilting group that has a bazaar. It will be offered for sale. The back is angel print. I added the gold and teal and brown to the panel and quilted around each framed photo in panel.
My sisters and I have been working on a birthday present for our Mom. I saw this as a table runner, not sure where, and thought it would make a neat hanging for Mom. My older sister does beautiful felt work so I asked her if she would like to work on this. My younger sister was the postage and other money person. From the last of the Mom and Grandma’s stash fabrics I put together the wall hanging and then mailed it to my sister to design flowers. We then on an in person visit picked out the fabrics and I took it all back home to complete just in time to give for Mom’s birthday.
