Stand clear please.....

That's right!  After being sick for the last couple of weeks you now need to stand clear as I am catching up again!

Had a very productive day today - did lots of around the house jobs and also managed to sew all the four patch blocks for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt.  No idea what comes next - a few thoughts but I will sleep on it over the next week!
Here they are on my design wall.
I am loving all the bright colours with the white.  Not sure where this quilt will end up  - guess some of that decision depends on where I go with it next......stay tuned!

Also, finally, managed to sew all the 5 inch star blocks for my Retreat Christmas Wall Hanging. 
Here they are when they had their turn on the design wall.

Tomorrow I hope to get them sewn to the rest of the quilt -  remember these are the border!
I can't wait to get to it!

Hope you have all had a great sewing weekend!

Till next time........happy stitching!


  1. Your Rainbow Scrap quilt is looking very pretty! Looking forward to seeing your Christmas quilt top all together.

  2. love the bright colors in the rainbow quilt!
    And wow, all those stars....that border will be stunning! I am always impressed by someone who can sew all those pointy triangles...they scare me!!

  3. Those star blocks look fabulous. I'm a fan of bright bold colour so I love how your rainbow quilt is turning out.

  4. Both pieces are great but I especially love those stars. Glad you are feeling better too.

  5. Agree with Julie above.....love both but wow! those stars.

    Good that you're feeling better, just don't overdo!

  6. So glad you are feeling. Your rainbow quilt is great with all the bright colors. I am so looking forward to seeing the stars sewn to your Christmas quilt. Don't over do it so it does not come back to get you.

  7. Beautiful! Just Beautiful!!
    I especially love the rainbow scrap quilt layout so far - it will be absolutely Gorgeous once complete! Have a fantastic week ahead ... God-willing with no more health set-backs!
