More stars

After making my previous post I couldn't resist digging into the goodie bag I brought home from Lapp-Elisa. The roll of yummy greys on top of the bag called out to me along with the lovely 0.5 meter cuts of Rosie's Love Letter fabrics.


Since I don't have a proper plan for the repro stars (other than making more of them in a few more sizes) and I knew more or less what I wanted to do with these fabrics the minute I spoted them in the shop I decided to start cutting and piecing. The roll of greys were cut at 2.5" which is perfect for the 9" star. Over the weekend I only got a couple of stars together:


But being home from work today enabled me and Bernie to play and I guess the picture speaks for itself regarding my plans ahead:



It's a classic setting, and it's turning out exactliy how I want it. Of course my little four legged friend had to come out and "help" me with the blocks:


He is such a cutie, but he has a bit of a morbid curiosity towards the rotary cutter, and I get really worried when he is moving around out of my contoll.

Hugs and stitches from Anne Ida and Anton
