Sun Stars & Sarah

Winding down another weekend...and boy was it a frigid one! I know everyone seems to be dealing with colder than usual temps! Perfect weekend to stay put inside, which is exactly what I did!

I finished up what I'm calling my Sun Star blocks!

I just love that Indigo Pewter & Honey line! I decided on a 12 block straight set...3 x 4...with a sashing in between. I plan to use a pewter from the line for the sashing...and then will bring out one of the darker prints for a border. But for now, I admire the blocks.

I got a little more in on Sarah Brignell.

I am telling you----these motifs are HUGE! And unfortunately the chart is all hand-charted and in black and white, so it's a little difficult to follow. I'm going to carry on and get that giant bloom on the right done...and then perhaps I will get the even MORE humongous central bloom stitched. I hope I don't grow sick of HUGE motifs! LOL

I got about 10 more rows done on my Mossy Mossy looks like it did before, only a little no need for a pic today! ;o)

I hope you're having a warm & cozy Sunday!! Until next time...thanks for all your wonderful comments!

Yep, the cold weather (and a fractured knee) were a great excuse to stay indoors and be crafty!

You made great progress on all those blocks - the colors are wonderful!

I just love those blocks Kim. I can't wait to see the quilt all put together. I'm really drooling on the keyboard over this one! Your Sarah Bignell sounds like AAWFAA. Huge motifs. Lots of fill in!

Heard that you weather was pretty frigid. Hope your staying warm and that it warms up soon. Spring can't come fast enough if you ask me!

I love these blocks - the indigo is great and the star is sparkly. Sorry it's still so cold - 43.7 C here yesterday, didn't go below 30 overnight - brutal.
