My lone star is growing with the third point being attached this week. I am finally happy with all the fabrics I am using.

Last month Moda ran a "Moda Love" blog tour.  I saw several of their designer's blogs with great quilts. Moda supplied a free pattern with instructions in 3 sizes.  I decided to use some of my Cotton and Steel fabrics to make the smallest size.

This is 12 1/2 inches unfinished.  I loved the version I saw with those little 4 patches on  Vanessa's blog. 

Look what I found!!!

The selvedge says "Tree of Life" by Di Ford with Petra Prins and Nel Kooiman for Dutch Heritage"  I found it at Somerset Patchwork and Quilting.

If you look  here you will see my photo of a Tree of Life Quilt from Quilts in the Barn last year. (fourth and fifth photos)  The centre panel of the quilt is all appliqued and is the same as the printed panel above.

Here are a couple of photos from my garden.

Banksia Rose

and Pink  Rock Orchid.

I am looking forward to this year's Quilts In The Barn, which is on this Friday Saturday and Sunday. Each year Linda very generously donates all proceeds to Breast Cancer Research. If you live close enough it is a great day out for a great cause.

Happy sewing

  2. Your Lone Star is beautiful Miriam. I'm so sorry I missed you in Melbourne -- I was only there for a few days (and went wherever Kellie and Jan so kindly took me), and then we went on "vacation". I'm looking forward to reading Quilts in the Barn posts -- I'm so sorry I missed it by just a few short weeks!

  3. Your lone star is so vibrant and fresh. Have fun at the barn.
