seeing stars

Hello, happy Monday.

I got my Juki back from the "machine doctor" on Saturday so my weekend was finally filled with sewing. Tons of it, I might add.

I was going to make progress on some of my wips, and suddenly (totally completely out of nowhere) I started working on a new quilt.


At first there were just these two pretty stars (I'm following Allison's tutorial) and by the time I was going to bed on Sunday night I had 16/ 36 made.


As you can see, I'm still very much on low volume and brights combination. I wonder how many quilts it will take before I get tired of this combo.

I also made a few Dumplings . This was the first one, two more are half way done so I'll share pictures once they are finished.

How was your weekend? Did you get any sewing done?

Wishing you all a very lovely day. Svetlana

  7. It looks like you're having so much fun! I love those stars -- that low volume/brights combo really works for me -- and those pouches are adorable!

  8. This quilt and the one you just posted about are both so beautiful! I really like how you've used the low volume background in these blocks. How do you come up with such pretty quilts over and over but they are all so different? I've never seen a quilt of yours I didn't love.

  11. Ha ha! You just can't resist the urge to start new things! Your stars are lovely, and your dumpling is uber cute! I had a go at one once which didn't go so well - you've inspired me to have another go!

  16. Well, I actually DID get some sewing done--but not nearly as much as you did! Beautiful things you have going on here.

  17. Love the chevrons in the star! It really twinkles!

    Just had the same problem - only started 5 new projects I shouldn't have! Sometimes you just have to give way gracefully!
