Stars

Stargazing blocks

These are all 6 of my Stargazing blocks for my hive in the 4 x 5 Modern Quilt Bee. This block is called Stargazing from the Modern Blocks book (page 178) and was designed by Angela Pinagel from Cut to Pieces. I just love making these stars, each one is my new favourite, until I make another.

Stargazing block for Debbie

I have to show you each of the ones I did not show you in my last post because I think this block is just so cute! This one is for Debbie from A Quilter's Table. Debbie asked for grey, white and orange.

Stargazing block for Nichole

This one is for Nichole, from Eleven Quilts, who asked for grey with bits of red and black highlights on an off-white background.

Stargazing block for Tiffany

And this one is for Tiffany from This Crafty Fox, who asked for aqua, orange, and grey on a medium or dark grey background.

I have news. First, if you have not yet been to Fairy Face Designs where Sarah is featuring {Sew} Getting Started Beginner Sewing Tutorials every Thursday, you should check it out.  The opening give away is open until Monday January 9. Sarah is running a great series of tutorials from a group of very talented people that will allow beginners, and the rest of us too, to master a number of skills. I get to do the tutorial for a tote bag which is scheduled for March 1, 2012 and I am very excited that I get to be part of this feature with so many talented women.

And, like me, you may have been enjoying the 100 Days of Modern Quilting feature at the Modern Quilt Guild blog. To my great surprise and pleasure, my video tutorial on how to sew drunkard's path curves is featured on today's post: 100 Days - Week of Shapes - Tutorial Roundup

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I hope to have some time to do more sewing tomorrow.

Best, 

Leanne
