Stars and more stars!!

Houston - we have star quilts!

In May, I blogged about NASA Astronaut Karen Nyberg and the star quilt block she created while on the International Space Station.    (See a video of Nyberg--with her block--on board the ISS!

You were invited to create a star block of your own and send it in to be joined with hers to make a quilt.   I read that 2,200 people sent in blocks so they got a whole series of quilts which displayed at the Houston Quilt Festival in October.  You can see this amazing series of these quilts on Facebook.

This was the block I submitted using my precious TARDIS fabric.

And here it is in one of those quilts!  So, so cool!!

I think this is so cool!

Happy Stitching!

Downton Abbey zip bag

Downton Abbey fans?

This comic was published back in February around the Superbowl.  Been saving it!


My mom requested a small zip bag for a friend.   Still have some of my fabric left.

Happy Stitching!

From the Farm - blocks 54-56

I've crossed the half way point!

With 111 blocks in total, the lowly maple leaf puts me over the half way point!

#54 - Kitchen Woodbox

#55 - Linoleum

#56 - Maple Leaf -  No, I am not Canadian but how could I not make this red!

I do my group photos after I hit each group of 20 - gives me some incentive.  So another group photo coming up soon.

Happy Stitching!
