Almost There

Slow and steady has been the pace for this one but it's paying off. I've got the centre panel done and just need to finish off a few more stars before I sew it all together.

There's lots of different fabrics in the centre panel - some holiday prints and some not - and it's just fun to look at. I really love how it has come together - the combination of the reds, greens and yellows are a happy centrepiece for all those wonderful little 4" stars. And the little bit of white & cream thrown in makes it feel 'snowy' too (is that a word?).

It's finally starting to look like its name, Stars All Around.

I'm trying to get as many different reds into the stars as possible for a really patchwork/scrappy feel and have made a few of the stars using a couple of reds too, just to mix it up.

And it's been fun adding in a few interesting background fabrics too. I think this red and green dot might have been from Fig Tree (surprise, surprise!). I'd love to have more of it but these are the remnants from my red & green Flying Geese quilt. I'll enjoy them that much more knowing that there's no more to be had....M

I just love this, Marie! Sawtooth Stars continue to be my favourite, and the pieced centre is perfect too. It's going to be fantastic!

Hey I think I see some of my fabrics in there! Kleptoquilting? It looks lovely Marie. I may have to make one too!

It's lovely. Makes it special to have the last pieces of some favourite fabrics too.
