Scrappy Stars

"Scrappy Stars" is another quilt designed by Camille Roskelley (ThimbleBlossoms) and is made using fabrics designed by Camille and her mother Bonnie.  I raided the scrap drawer for the stars and was able to use the scraps to make a large percentage of the stars.

 The quilt is pretty big at 86-1/2" square.

Karen quilted this one with Rainbow Hearts, my current favourite quilting design.

Orange orange-peel designed fabric for the backing and scrappy navy Bonnie and Camille fabrics for the binding.

When I was picking up "Scrappy Stars" from Karen, I mentioned I was heading home to cut out a cot quilt for a new baby boy.  Karen gave me these beautiful "Darling Little Dickens" fabrics she had left over from her own grandson's quilt. 

I added three Hatched and Patched soft blue fabrics to the mix and there was enough to make a version of "Bradley Street".  We had stitching at my place last night and Karen took the quilt top home to quilt - amazing when serendipity takes over.

Have been waking up very early lately so all the trimming is finished by my Bonnie and Camille version of "Snippets"

and one block has been made.  Karen and I have both made this quilt before using FigTree fabrics.

Sad day at home today - one of my huge gum trees is coming down.  Turns out it's over 40% dead and Council has given permission for it to be removed.  The remaining trees will be having all the dead wood removed.  It never stops at my place.

Finally, a photo Michael sent through of the cutest ever jumper model wearing a beanie GG made and a jumper Nanna made last year.  We had such a great day on Saturday.  I took ChaCha and Mum to Sydney and we met up with Michael and Gulli at an inflatable play area and Jenni and Kurt also came along.  The little ones played/ran for 3 hours.  We all then went to meet Peta when she finished work and we had dinner together in Redfern.  Top day.

Time to make some progress on the Ohio Star cot quilt.
