Wednesday WIP: A new year... A fresh start.

My first WIP update this year. First week I was burried in work and seriously stretched for time.  I have so much great fabric waiting to be cut into... just need more time  :) While I can't master much inspiration this week be sure to head over to Lee's to see some really great projects AND a seriously cute elephant.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

A new year means a fresh start. are so many new project and tempting quilt alongs so I think 2012 will be a VERY busy and interesting year.

The Made-in-Cherry QAL will start soon. Very soon :) I have some lovely Ruby Heirloom waiting for this beatiful star:
pins & bobbins

Another to-die-for star quilt -a-long that really calls for bright colors. I might have to go shopping :)

I did finish one thing this week though -another Sparke Plenty quilt from Stephanies great pattern. This was a gift for my oldest who turns 11 today. He really liked the first star I made (the pattern only, not the colors so much) so I decided to make him his own. It ended up bein 160x160cm. Other than the giant star itself I love that it so easy to make in different sizes. My sweet son is (besides being super sweet) a very tactile child - he is always touching and feeling things - so I decided to make a super soft fleece backing. Funny thing is he went with me to the quilt store not knowing I was buying backing for his quilt and once he touched the fleece he couldn't stop feeling it. Needles to say he loved the quilt and he instantely wrapped it around him this morning. It is various grey and light blue scraps and with a black/white dotted border.


  1. Your star is amazing and stunning. I love the soft colors! It's amazing!

  2. The star is great. I might have to put that on my to-do list.

  3. I like the star quilt a lot. I think you've inspired me.

  4. What a perfect quilt for a boy!

  5. What a beautiful quilt. It's wonderful that your son loves it so much.
