The week leading up to Easter and Easter itself were busy but lots of fun and great times with the family and friends.

Early last week I finished sewing "Scrappy Stars" - it's a reasonably big quilt at ~87" square and there was a lot of cutting and sewing to make the scrappy stars.

The backing and scrappy navy binding.

I dropped the quilt off with Karen on Good Friday when we had our sewing day with Paula and Rhonda, making Cake Mix Recipe 4 quilts - the recipe papers help make very accurate half-square triangles using Layer Cakes (I'm using FigTree & Co "Mirabelle" with Minnick & Simpson's "Miss Scarlet" for the background).

The girls working hard:

Karen is making a quilt with flying geese blocks:

Friday night ChaCha came to stay and after she went to bed I removed the papers while watching "Harrow" and "Silent Witness".

On Saturday ChaCha and I met up with Elizabeth and Matt at the Easter Fair in Towradgi - such a great event for little ones:  loads of rides.  Gosh it was hot.

Did a fair bit of cutting out over the weekend as well.

Susan Ache's "Seaglass" using loads of different FigTree & Co fabrics with the same "Miss Scarlet"

and an Ohio Star quilt for a customer from her children's baby clothes:

Easter Sunday was mostly preparing for the family lunch on Easter Monday and I also visited Karen to pick up the "Medley" quilt.  Easter Monday was so great - the little ones just love seeing each other and play so well together.  The Easter Bunny visited Primbee and left footprints all over the back yard.  It was The Best Day.

You always make such lovely blocks into quilts....
It's so nice watching the little ones have fun together.
