Post-Birmingham Monday Morning Star Count #4

Seems like I've still got soooo much to tell you about the NEC exhibition at Birmingham, but vacation's caught me up and I don't think that there will be more than some pieces whenever I've got a finish or something pops up in my mind.
First of all, the quilt I entered, you remember?  This one:

First of all: we did get judged, yeah!!! And won three "Excellent", quite encouraging, don't you think?

During our stay, I wrote something about our workshop with Paula Doyle. I managed to turn the little sample into a mug rug, using the binding-less backing technique she described to us. Here it is.
 I just quilted a little in the ditch... Too glad we got a pattern for a handbag and Paulas book... I will have to do that again :)

And now, last but not least, the Monday Morning Star Count to be liked with Life under Quilts - which to be honest is to be a "monday evening star count" since I'm only now done...

 A little teaser first... this is my "workbook" with a lot of pre-cut pieces showing the "true colours" of my little project.
 And here's what I managed to sew during the last two weeks. Yes. I know. I wanted to be done. But reality caught up with me and I needed the time during the holidays to just plain relax.
114 pieces done, which brings me up to 230 pieces done, with 117 still to go. I'm convinced to be finished with the top by next week's monday.


  1. Ooh, I love the ring of pointy stars! Good luck meeting your deadline, we'll be around for the next 2 weeks cheering you on!

  2. Congratulations on the three "excellent". Your work looks awesome. And I love your red stars.

  3. Your finished quilt is amazing! I'd give it at least five "excellent"s. Can't wait to see the mystery revealed.

  4. That quilt is amazing¡¡¡ I love your blues.

  5. Thanks for your encouraging words. The project is going good so far, managed to piece some 30 pieces already.
    I also love the blues, I'm sooo lucky I found this fat quarter package...


Thanks for dropping by. Even more thanks for sharing your thoughts and feelings. Have a nice day!
