This week I have been getting heaps ticked of my to-do list. Most of it extremely boring and not blog worthy - such as piecing backings for quilts. But after I got a few flimsies ready for quilting I gave myself permission to do something fun.
Last year after seeing this quilt in Sew Scrappy Vol. One, I fell in love and I made it for my Mum out of Pom Pom de Paris.
No photo of my quilt, but I was so happy with it - it was absolutely gorgeous. After making Mum's quilt I was totally in love and decided that I needed one for myself so I made one in blue using Deb Tucker's Rapid Fire Hunter's Star ruler. Again, no photo of the blue quilt yet - it is with Mum waiting to be quilted next month. But, the love affair with the Hunter's Star continues because I decided that two just weren't enough and now I am making one for Ethan in French General's La Petite Ecole (the fabric that made me cry like a big loser as I confessed here). Hunter's Star Quilts for everyone!!
I really like the Rapid Fire Hunter's Star Ruler. With it you make the blocks slightly over-sized and then trim them down afterwards. There is something satisfying about slicing off all your crooked unsightly edges and having a nice little pile of trimmings to show for your efforts.
And here are all the blocks nicely squared up and laying in rows ready to become a quilt.
So, that's WIP Wednesday. With any luck it will become a Friday finish before too long. I am linking up with Quilt Story's Fabric Tuesday and Freshly Pieced WIP Wedesday. Head on over to check out more crafty goodness.
