Welcome to my blog about my quilting journey! I started quilting in 2006 with a quilt of my own design which started as a cushion cover and ended up as a single bed sized quilt! Now I'm totally hooked....maybe obsessed is a better word for it.

Seeing Stars!

I've been working on the Solstice Stars and stars from the Summer Sampler Series posted on Fresh Lemons Quilts blog. Today I finished this Rocky Road to Kansas block from the Summer Sampler Series. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I could have been a little more accurate on the centre seams I guess!

These are all the blocks I've done so far:

They are (clockwise from top left) Rocky Road to Kansas, Another Star, Ribbon Star and Whirling Star. I'm pretty happy with the way these are going together. That has been my plan from the start as I've been using some of my favourite fabrics so this one is a keeper!

Today I was also cutting up fabrics for an upcoming weekend away sewing with some other like minded ladies next weekend at Wallaroo here in South Australia. Its an opportunity for a weekend by the seaside, sewing all day and I'm guessing drinking too many cups of coffee! I have loose plans for several more star blocks, a bag or two and if I can't get onto my machine for whatever reason I'm taking my handpiecing project as well. That should keep me out of mischief for the weekend!

I'll make sure I post some photos when I get back!

Thanks for dropping by!
