Constellation Side One...

I pieced the Brit Bee Constellation yesterday. 

The first side, between playing Snap at school, and going back to retrieve the small folk, and the other after they had hit the sack, all tired out from Ballet and Beavers.

So today I give you the sunshine pictures of Side One...




Doesn't it look awesome - I really cannot thank the Brit Bee ladies and Katy Jones enough for making this one what it is!

This baby is also huge, well it is for me, c. 72" square.  I was contemplating making my Made In Cherry quilt the full 90", but having seen the size of this, I am seriously going to scale back from the 5" charms to 3.5".  Do you think I need to Swoonalong too?  How many huge star quilts does one person need?

I tried to get some decent pictures of Side Two today, but the weather wasn't quite so nice, but I'll show you those tomorrow.

Once again, a massive shout out, thank you and complete all-round gob-smack-ed-ness to the Mouthy Stitches sign ups - we are now provisionally full.  We just need to tally up the pure observers and those who have not completed the sign up form or posted their mosaics, there may be some additional places - if you have joined the group already, or are still undecided, please check out the message on our flickr group page, thank you.  I cannot wait to get matching partners and making!

  3. Oh my, it's beautiful! I may have to hunt you down and steal it! Joke, kind of! :-)

    Jealous of your sunshine too, cloudy and dull in my part of the UK today.

    I contemplated the swap, but I'm a pouch virgin, so more experience for me first. I am tempted also by the swoonalong :-)

  5. It does look incredible fluttering and creating shadows in the light. I am guessing you might be swayed to Swoon
