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.

Celestial Stars - Block 2!

Now that I have my July UFO projects out of the way I managed to find the time to put another of my Celestial Star blocks together.

I'm not sure whether I like this one as much but its not too bad.  Here it is laid out on the table waiting to be stitched together.  You can't see it in this photo but I managed to cut off the pointy end of one of the centre wedges when I was trimming them up. Who knows how I managed that but it didn't end up being a problem as it was just inside the seam allowance fortunately so I didn't need to redo it.

Here it is all put together:

Perhaps the reason I don't like this one as much is that there's not enough contrast in the outer ring with the blue and dark green.  Still when all the blocks go together it will probably work.
As a reminder this is the first star I made:

So two down and two to go!  If you'd like to join in the quiltalong too head over to this post at from Blank Pages.
