Whew this has been a busy and productive time. Besides hosting a small camping rally over the weekend I have managed to get some quilt tops sewn and to finish a table topper. All different patterns. Love it.
During a Quilters for Comfort Table Runner swap, a picture posted of a topper that was mailed out caught my eye. Further information noted that the topper was from Sew Easy Strata Star 3 patter by Ruthann Eckersley. She sells the pattern on-line. It was so much fun, I am looking forward to my next Strata Star.
This is what happened when I found this cute butterfly fabric to use for the charity quilt this month. However, what happened was not what I started out to construct. I put the fabrics in a stack and started cutting out strips with the rotary cutter. Well, cut one was fine, but cute two should have been a different size......so I ended up with bordered squares. Even then I had to raid the stash to get enough borders and blocks to make the size needed.
I think it turned out great, even though it is not at all what I planned on creating. It is one of those that I had a hard time letting loose of. But it should be in Oregon at a Children's Hospital with many prayers attached as it was made.
Here is a bright summer weight quilt. I used no batting in my windows. Just fabric and thread on this one. I used the Circle Magic template and instructions which I purchased from Missouri Quilt Company. You can find a tutorial there too.
I used fabric from my stash many years ago when I cut the circles and sewed them. Many were not even tur Ned yet when I came back to the this project.
