T'other side...

I just had to haul the second side of the Constellation quilt out into the sunshine again today.  I took photos yesterday, and they all came out looking a little flat, so here you have the side with all the little stars...




I love it; I completely forgot to look at the real pattern for this side, I got a bit carried away after making the siggy stars.

So now comes the grovelling about on the floor stage, spray in hand, and a few pins for matching the centre blocks.  I bought my thread for the quilting during the week, so this weekend I hope to make headway on that.

Can't go without mentioning Mouthy Stitches - if you have signed up but not completed the form for this round, please could you pop over now and complete it, or let us know you are a voyeur only, and as soon as all the mosaics are uploaded, we will be able to fill any spaces and commence the matching process.  Remember it is not a straight swap - ie. 2 people making for each other, we will be matching one person for you to make for, and also one mystery person to make for you!  Fun, fun, fun!

  14. Clearly this quilt has no front/back. I love each side as much as the other.

  20. Hi! Is there any way I can get a copy of the directions for this quilt? The fat quarter publication is no longer and I've contacted the maker but no go on that direction either. Any suggestions?
