A Little Change Of Plans

My momentum on the Barbara Brackman sew along for her "Stars In A Time Warp" is kept up by the thrill of the hunt through my stash for the right fabrics.

Today I have a  large scale Indigo for last week and my best efforts at a Lapis for this week.

If you haven't yet discovered her delightfully educational and fun blog, here is the link.

The above center panel was from an Indigo Crossing bundle that has sat idly by just screaming to be used!
Below is my feeble attempt to find any blue at all that isn't indigo. It is a vintage Old Green Cupboard selection worked with some random scraps that are mostly anonymous.

Please do notice that my cornerstones are from that marvelous hunk of Jo Morton cheddar that my dear friend Grace had sent to me.

Thanks, Grace!

I've been cutting a bit for some upcoming swaps of 5" charms to use as Tumblers in Bonnie K. Hunter's Tumbler Challenge. If you go to this link, there's lot of fun ideas for this quilt! Link.

When I can, I'll cut down my scraps from that tumbler cutting to a 4½" square to use for these 8½" Sawtooth Stars in their centers.

On Tuesday, at The Sunshine Club, Sue was very proud to show off her newly completed Leprechaun Quilt!! Nice finish, Sue!

Sue is also making great progress on her scrappy machine appliqued Dresden Plates blocks.

I left The Alton, New Hampshire Senior Center quilt meeting early to go to the Farmer's Wife sewing group down in Milton, New Hampshire at The Evergreen Quilt Shop.

Alas! Our hostess, Camille had to cancel the meeting at the last minute due to a sick cat that needed a trip to the veterinarian. I'm happy to report that her Miss Emily is doing much better now.

Milton is close to Rochester, New Hampshire, so I popped in to visit Kelly at The Footprints Quilt Shoppe. Grabbed up a fistful of pretty new neutrals and headed back home for the AC!

I hope that you can stay cool wherever you are and quilt on!

Happy sewing!

Each of these stars makes me smile. Love them!
Sorry your trip to Evergreen CP was canceled.
I've not heard of The Footprints shop.
Hope you can escape the heat and humidity in your AC!
(Cute little pinwheel block.) : )

At least there was a nearby quilt shop to ease your disappointment!
Love your stars, as always - they're always so very pretty!
