New Year Stars!

Well as is customary, pinch punch, first of the month and time to link up with Lynne and all the Fresh Sewing ladies (and gents?).

So after the manic end to 2011, I spent the best part of January 2012 working on big quilts, and it has been wonderful.

My Brit Bee Constellation quilt has got to be my favourite finish ever, I have gushed thanks and posted many many pictures here, but never one to miss the chance of posting another picture, or two...



Then there was my Cherry Star; made using rainbow swap charms and buoyed on by Chelsea's QAL, this is already a chilly-day/night favourite!


There were also some Brit Bee and Bee Blessed blocks for Judith...



And of course the start of the Mouthy Stitches zippy pouch swap...



I also made it to the final 8 of the completely brilliant Quokka Quilt's Blogger's Choice, which I am really proud of...


I think that can be counted as a pretty good start to the New Year, and February is already looking like it is going to be a bit of a Leap Year bonanza!

I hope 2012 has started how you mean it to go on too x

  8. You are going like a train girl! Love your Constellation quilt - it's an example of how great Bee quilts can be! And your Cherry is fantastic. And I've actually bookmarked your fat quarter selection 'cause I love it so much - I'm on the hunt for all the fabrics in it! I adore orange but grey frightens me a bit, so I want to go outside my own comfort zone (although I wonder if this really counts if I use your colours!). Gush over now - just wanted to have a drink to you, so to speak!

  10. Much busier than I on the creative end.
    Ride the roller coaster while you can.

    Your constellation quilt almost makes me want to plan out a quilt and sew it.
