I also made a purchase at my LQS of some more Luna Notte yardage to use in a jelly roll quilt I have planned and another fat quarter of a brown fabric for a Jo Morton basket quilt/wall hanging.
I've made a little more progress on the centre block applique and the star blocks for the quilt I've begun to work on recently. I've been using the needleturn method for this applique and I find it fairly slow compared to the freezer paper method I described a few posts ago (orange peel quilt). I would have had to reverse the pattern for some of the pieces, I now wish I'd taken the time to do so.
Here are some of the pretty blue fabrics I've cut for more star blocks which will join the red ones.
Whenever I make these stars I use the little pieces that I cut off the flying geese sections to make small HST. I am collecting a growing pile of them from various projects but haven't decided what to do with them yet. I feel quite noble, waste not, want not and all that!
Sorry about the flash reflection but you get the idea of how many of these little suckers I now have! Any ideas?
I have a customer's quilt on my frame ready to get quilted so I'd better bestir myself and get on with it!
Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend and just about ready for Christmas.
Bye for now,
