These are the first set of the Oh My Stars! quilt along and I can't wait to get started on the next set. They all look so beautiful.
I've also managed to finish two TwitterB blocks... my last ones, sadly. I can't believe we've gone through the entire year! Linda sent a beautiful butterfly fabric, so I played up the aquas and yellows. She asked for Scrappy Hedgerow Blocks, using Elizabeth Hartman's tutorial.
Charlene sent some Amy Butler Soul Blossoms and asked for a block using Elizabeth's Mod Mosaic tutorial.
I was last in the group, so my fabric went out last week. I asked the girls to make... wait for it... yes, an Elizabeth Hartman block. Are you seeing a pattern here? Hmmmm.
The block I chose was the Paintbox Quilt Blocks. I sent out some solids based on the "Fresh Tints" palate by designseeds.
I also asked them to make siggy blocks to add to the back. Can't wait to see what the girls do with it.
School is going well. I actually had a stats-free weekend and it was wonderful. I cleaned out my sewing room closet so my father-in-law could start on making some shelves...and he finished them yesterday! I'll have before and after photos to show soon.
On the yarn front, I still haven't finished my beginner's scarf, but I've started another set of gloves and a Honey Cowl. I'm using Berroco Boboli.... oh, so soft!!! I can't wait to get this one finished. Looks like I'll be keeping my pattern of starting a bazillion projects and finishing none. Just like my quilting. :)
A local shop is having a yarn sale through Friday, so I'm heading out today to see what I can find. I've never been there before, so it should be fun!
Happy Wednesday... don't forget to link up with Lee!
