Stars and Sprigs

These are the new additions to my Stars and Sprigs quilt. I made a few more appliqué blocks and made 3 stars to see how it goes. I did cut fabric for more stars; but have not finished the sewing. I will not trim the blocks until it is time to sew them together. The 2 blocks below are blocks 11 and 12. Block 11 was done over the Atlantic Ocean going east and 12 coming back west bound. They were in my carry on baggage; but the airline asked me to check my bag. So I did. The bag was lost; but I got it delivered 24 hours later in the middle of the night. I was so worried that I would not see them again. Never mind the new shoes and hat in the same bag. ;-)

  5. You're off to a great start on your quilt! I love your fussy cuts.
    It had to be scary to lose your luggage? I'm so glad it showed up. This is a great story of the making of this quilt. Be sure to write it down and keep it with the quilt? :)

  11. I bought the pattern last month but have so many projects in the mix I decided it had to wait until after the new year...I do have a box where I keep tossing fabric to use in it though!

  14. What gorgeous blocks! They certainly look very cheerful. Lovely colours, love it! Glad you got your luggage back. I 've been through that a couple of times and one actually never came back. This was in the pre - scan days. Cheers, Kim McL
