Friendship Stars Quilt

The Friendship Stars Quilt has gone together without a hitch ! It is as if you were all there cheering me on. Decisions on fabrics to use worked first time ! No fussing around trying all kinds of colours and prints etc. It just worked ! I am thrilled with the outcome and loved working on this quilt. I can't wait to make a start on the quilting, so I can snuggle under it this coming winter.

A few pictures, so you can see what I have done. I hope you can see your name on the stars. Sorry for the crooked quilt lol It's not easy taking photo's in my small sewing room.

I added the applique center, to work in with the blocks and increase the size of the quilt. You know I love applique ! So this block was such fun to do, I love the bird fabric. I have had it only for a short time, this was the perfect place to use it. The border fabric has been in my stash for years......... waiting waiting for that special project. Would you believe I only just had enough of the border fabric, it fitted like a glove. ( It was meant to be...)

I hope you like my Friendship Stars Quilt. I just love it, so glad I found these special blocks tucked away in that safe place. Lol..........

Do you see your star ?

Happy Stitching

Sharon

I have a copy of my book 'Autumn Bouquet' in my hands and I can't wait to share what's inside.

It's here !  It feels so different to actually have a printed copy to look through and see the final outcome of all my hard work.  The book has instructions and lots of pictures for the two main methods I use for applique in my quilts, I hope you will give them a try. Read more.....

The Humble Half Square Triangle unit is the basis for many great quilt blocks. Let me take you down memory lane, with some of pictures of my quilts, and tips on what I have learned so far. ( I am always learning, changing and trying out new things. )

The first method I learnt as a beginner quilter was the traditional method, sewing two triangles together to make a square unit. Read more....

The Cat's Cradle Quilt Pattern is now added to the website. I know there have been some of you asking about this pattern, I apologize for taking so long getting the pattern ready for release.
