After Sewing Sunday

For a long time I have dreamed of making a Star Quilt.
Last year there was Oh, My Stars quilt-along on Thought&Found blog. The great tutorials for the star blocks are still found there.
Now Grit from Germany is calling for everyone to join sew-along stars with her. I think this is my moment to start MY Star quilt.
Then I just had to decide the colour...
oh... that was a very tough part of this 'game'...
On last Saturday I felt greeny and I found some fascinating green fabrics. 
Could green be the answer? Maybe I add a bit purple and turquoise along My Star journey... 

In any case here are my first ones...

Basic Sawtooth Stars: the biggest star is 12", the other 8" and the smallest are 4". 
Sheila has written a good tutorials for the stars. Although you are not interested in star quilt, it's still worth of reading those tutorials. There you'll find many useful sewing hints.

Fenix insisted to introduce to you our next project.

It's a fabric basket & Thread Catcher. The pattern is from Natalie Bird's book called Red Home.

Chookyblue and the other SAL girls are starting a new stitch-along in January and this basket is the first SAL project. I think I'm not allowed to take part in, because I haven't yet finish the previous SAL project, Some Kind of Wonderful. 
The size of the basket is about 3" x 5". The rose applique is also from Natalie's book, I 'borrowed' it from the other project. And as you see I didn't make careful measurements... the applique is a bit too down... under... ;o)

Wow, the second OPAM in this month...

I - finally - finished the first block of Pumpkinville and I started the second...


Happy Moments of Sewing for Next Time!!!

It looks like you and Fenix are right on track with your finishes. I guess your Some Kind of Wonderful is waiting to be finished?

Hi Satu!
How nice, you are making the star quilt along with me and the others, I think that is great!
Your first stars look good, and the colour choice is perfect.

Tähdet tähdet... lauloi jo Rauli Badding Somerjoki. Mun suosikki blokki. Tuntuu että kaikki mun blokit ovat tähtien eri versioita. Odotan innolla valmistumista.
