Amy's Carpenter's Star - Amy is working on a Carpenter's Star quilt this month with her local bee and happened to make an extra package of fabric, so I told her to send it my way. She sent a gorgeous blue print from Khristian A. Howell's Morroccan Mirage collection (still in stock at Hawthorne Threads!) as well as a gorgeous salmon from Art Gallery's Pure Elements collection and some background Kona. I love this Carpenter's Star block, so glad Cherie wrote a simple tute for it!
Star Crossed Stitch Quilt - Almost done! Thanks for all of the feedback on how to sash and border this one; in the end, I went with my gut, which said to finish the top simply, to let the blocks shine. The top's all done, though it was super difficult to photograph yesterday, thanks to lots of gale force gusts of wind. Now if only I could decide how to quilt it... ;)
Getting started on:
Cosmic Burst project - Mark Cesarik was kind enough to send some of his gorgeous upcoming Cosmic Burst (coming to a fabric store near you in April!) collection my way and I'm trying to decide how to best use it. I've got a bunch of ideas, just need to decide on one! I really love the bright jewel toned colors in this collection, especially the bright blue.
Oakshott Shot Cottons project - I received a gorgeous package of Oakshott shot cotton fabrics from Mr. Oakshott himself this week and I'm totally in awe of how amazing they are. Super smooth and soft and lovely dimensions, too! I think I might do some paper piecing with these beauties. Perhaps some NY Beauty blocks?
What are you stitching up this week? Write it up and share it over at Lee's for WiP Wednesday!
