Pink Stars...update.

Jacobs border is on...sorry for the fuzzy photo...

I'm loving this a bit more now...
Jacobs Ladder is so easy and fun to piece.....now to see what I'll add next. First another narrow pink border, there's just no getting away from using more pink...
I've had comments that the pink doesn't look pink, I'll try and take a close up of the fabric.
I think I'll call this quilt "Raspberry Medley "....suits the shade of pink...

Have a great weekend, whatever you have planned...

Auditioning stars and sashing....

Need to tone down all that pink...but can't make up my mind which way to go..

I'm thinking of adding a Jacobs Ladder border.....without  another row of sashing or....


.....With . All this pink is not working for me....

Yesterday I had a lovely afternoon in a quilt  shop called Patchwork at Homespun. (Sorry I don't know how to add the link on my iPad.)..
Just being there with great friends, all that lovely fabric, quilts, lots of inspiration really sparked those creative thoughts again....mojo coming back!

Back to making stars till I decide on which way to go with this...

Have a lovely weekend..

New project...


I caved in and started a new project.....because this Holly Hobbie project is going to take way too long to even get it to a nice bed topper size. So far it's only about a quarter of the size I'd like it to be..
I really should be working on a UFO, but it's more fun to start something new....😊
I've been struggling to find my mojo again,....when it goes, it takes a lot to get going again,  I'm hoping this will kick start it again....
Looking very pink, a bit too pink for me, but  this might be a nice table topper or bed topper if I have enough of the pink fabric......to gift someone.
 I had the 2" scrappy squares in my stash , I could also use them for a scrappy outer border. I think that would help tone down the pink.

Until next time....take care.

Insanity.....



Is this insane or what!
Dear patchwork friends have been working on these quilts.
Above is Anne's "Insanity ".....1/2 inch hexies....how amazing is this. Anne machine quilted it herself on her domestic machine. Anne decided to finish with a black border.......a beautiful finish!..

Desa's beautiful "Insanity" is done in gorgeous brights with the main focus on purple.
Desa, stuck to the original layout bringing the tiny1/2 inch hexies right out to the edge. It's now ready to be quilted 
Ok....that's all of....10,640 hexies....could you have done this?

Beautiful work girls....all credit to you both, and stayed sane....πŸ˜‰πŸ’•

We are having a heatwave, seven days so far with over 40 degrees Celsius.....and there's more to come 

Take care and stay safe

Need to get back to this....


Really need to get back to this, you may be able to see the creases where it's been folded and put away in a tub....5/8th hexies, great take out sewing project, just need to work on it more....
There's really no rush as this will go into my great grandkids ( great grand-daughter) hope chest...
.
...and below is another work in process, that I need to get back to .......

.....using up my CW scraps.....love them so much and such fun going through them, finding old favourites that would be hard to find now...
Do you find the longer they sit, put away for awhile, the harder it is to get back to ......

Have a lovely day whatever you have planned....

Hugs Julia.....
