Bloggers BOM & Birthday Blocks

Slowly adding to my pile for the Bloggers BOM using fabrics from Kaffe Fassett and a neutral spotty background.  I have doubled up on a couple plus left one out as it just didn’t work.

My quilt group surprised me a few weeks ago with some blocks made for my birthday and used an online tutorial for a block I’d indicated I really liked.  It was a total surprise and don’t they look fabulous together.

The block is called “Another Star” and Faith from Fresh Lemons Quilts has used the design as part of her Solstice Stars Series – a gorgeous star sampler quilt in fresh, modern colours.  I am thinking I might make some of the other Star blocks now to go with them. Decisions, decisions.

 

Block of the Month – Star Surprise

I need some more space in my teeny sewing room and have found some UFOs which really need to be finished.
This one has been hanging around for a while now – if I have been away from home for 2.5 years, then it must  be 3 years overdue …yikes.  This block of the month came from Amitie in Melbourne and is called Star Surprise
by Trish Harper.  I started sewing the blocks by hand, but realistically it will be another 3 years if I continue at this snail’s pace, so have done 3 blocks this week by machine.  They are all 12” blocks
