Weekend Accomplishments

For the Saturday "Orange" Soscrappy day, I finished six interlocking stars and added six purple ones.  I have several pinks cut out and will work on them during the month.  The background is a Moda light gray -- I have been wanting to use this gray and I think I have the perfect vehicle from my magazine stash.

Designer:  Elizabeth Hartman
Pattern Name:  Sparkle Punch
Published by:  Fons and Porter
When:  July/August 2012

Finally -- my sampler quilt is bound and on the bed.  I finished the binding by MACHINE!  Oh happy day.  I have four quilts waiting in line.  This quilt was part of a monthly BOM project last year:

Hosted by:  Jackie, Canton Village Quilt Works
Name:  Bloggers Block of the Month

On the machine, a tiger print bound purple project -- I have set the machine to the slowest speed, added many pins and taking my time.  When I finish it, I will take an outside picture.

I was surprised when I clicked on the link for the sparkle punch quilt. I must be drawn to your colors. I didn't notice that quilt from the magazine as a quilt of interest. I may need to rethink that. I see some DS stash making a great quilt.

Love the star quilt!!! Your use of color is stunning and inspiring me to use some gray fabric I have been holding on to for such a design. Gorgeous!!! Hugs, Doreen
