So I’m very excited about my next quilt project. Of course I have a pile of UFO’s but they can wait a little longer!
Two years ago I took my sister to the Sydney Craft and Quilt Fair. I’d been promising to make her a quilt, but I was lost as to which style would interest her. As we wandered around the exhibition hall admiring the amazing quilts on display, I mistakenly said, ‘Pick any quilt and I’ll see what I can do’.
Silly me, guess which beauty my sister picked…
A Lone Star!
So two years later I’m finally beginning Sarah’s ‘Sunday’ quilt from Material Obsession 2. This gorgeous pile of solids from Just Wing It by MoMo will form the Lone Star against a chocolate brown background. I’m beginning to think I may need to make two of these!
Tomorrow, being Sunday is also a SPECIAL day. Yep, I’m blowing out some candles. I love how the Craft and Quilt Fair always falls during my birthday week, so much easier to justify my purchases! Here are my birthday pressies I picked up earlier in the week…
If you go to the Fair this weekend, don’t forget to drop by Sarah’s blog at The Last Piece to get the secret info on the awesome daily prizes. I also had the pleasure of helping Nicole Mallalieu at her show stand full of great bag patterns…do stop by and take a look! Have a great weekend, I know I will!
