I started making Barbara Brackman's 'Stars in a Time Warp'. Each week on her Blog there is the history of a different fabric and pictures of star blocks. You can make one or as many Stars as you wish using that particular colour or type of fabric. At the moment I have only made one in each but I hope to make more later on, as I have several fabrics in each variation except for the Overdyed Green.
 So far we have had Turkey Reds - Prussian Blues - Shirting Prints - Chrome Orange or Cheddar - Overdyed Greens - Double Pinks - Madder Prints -Indigo Blue - Chrome Yellow - Green Calicoes and Purples.
Here is a picture of my Stars so far.

My other project - Mrs Millar's Journey -  is progressing slowly. This is one of four baskets on the side blocks of the quilt and I have two of them stitched down.  

Time to sit and sew and watch the World Cup Cricket final.

I have started off with a photo of the next block that I have finished for the Under the Cherry Tree quilt. I'm glad to have the berries sewn on as there was quite a few.

Then I started a new quilt and this is the centre block for Mrs Millar's Journey quilt designed by Liz Willing. The large leaves and flowers overlap onto the surrounding blocks and will be sewn down when the blocks are attached.

A couple of visitors to the garden. They were quite happy to sit there and devour our tomatoes straight off the plants.

Last Friday I went to Ballan with a couple of friends and saw this quilt show. It had been put on by Millrose . Patchwork shop, cafe and accommodation.

one of my favourite.

just a section on a quilt.



Needless to say we also did a bit of shopping while we were there.
I did finish my Grandson's cot quilt and forgot to take a photo before I gave it to him.I'll take one when it gets hung up.
