Description

A foundation pieced stars QAL - heaven. It's hosted by Don't Call me Betsy and the patterns/tutorials are fantastic. There is an option of 12" or 6" and I've gone for 6" blocks to make a baby quilt.

The fabrics are all from my stash and from all over the place! I was so excited I've already made the practice block and block 1 and now I have to wait until February for the next block!

Just finished the March block and I love it - possibly my favourite (in terms of the colours I picked) so far!

April block completed - getting behind and desperately trying to catch up. I wasn't sure about this block, but now it's done I really love it!

03.09.2013: The plan now is that this will be a baby quilt for my baby - so I need a finished quilt for February. I also need 18 blocks (so I'll be substituting a few extras). But I am now up to date on the blocks so far!

09.01.2014: I'm carrying on into 2014 but today I finished the December 2013 block. And because there is a second year, this quilt isn't for baby any more - you can see Baby's quilts in my other projects - this one will be for Mammy!

22.05.2014: January 2014 block done, but quite far behind now!

The downside of foundation piecing - scraps - I'm thinking tiny hexies to allay my guilt!
