Star flower blocks, my first for do. Good Stitches
Some time last year I came across the blog Stitched in Color. I was fascinated with the charity quilting groups that Rachel ran and thought I might like to join one when I heard that there may be an Australian group being formed. I was too late to join that group, but my name was placed on a list and I am now part of an International group. You can read about do. Good Stitches here on flickr. We are in the midst of making our first blocks. I am pretty excited about this endeavour and have just finished stitching these beauties. They have yet to be pressed and have a decent photo taken of them, but I figured you would want to see them anyway! They were fun to make. I really love making half square triangles and this is an interesting block I wouldn't mind making a quilt from. I will put it in my book of quilts to make (it's getting quite full!) and see how I go. I also spent more time sewing my Good Fortune quilt today. I had no plan for that at all and today I worked out that it is big, and possibly too narrow for it's length. (How I know this I don't know. Miss 25 thinks I am crazy, but I feel I need to do something to the quilt top to widen it a little. Right now the top is folded up on a shelf. I will have to think about it a little more.
