Star for Australia

I had a request today to get involved in a group Bush Fire Quilt Project that is making blocks for quilts for the survivors of the horrible fire in Australia. My son and I quickly made 2 blocks and will put them in the mail tomorrow.

Bush Fire Quilt Project

Miniature for me

My studio

I am slowly doing some organizing. On Sunday I started with the bookshelves and sorted them by color. I have the books to the left and then accessories in that color to the right. It is my way of having organized chaos!

orange shelf green shelf

yellow shelf red shelf

purple shelf blue shelf

Having the bookshelves coordinated by color is just fun. It makes it more enjoyable to be in the studio. I even have a pink shelf started. It’s below

the yellow one but ends up behind the table.

The sunflower quilt is slowly coming along. I finished a 4th 49 patch this morning. I haven’t sewn it in yet. Everything is a process you know!

I am setting the fabrics aside for the 5th 49 patch. I may have to start asking the ladies in my quilt group for donations…I want each 49 patch to

have a different white/cream tone on tone and a different yellow/golden tone. So far I haven’t had a duplicate.

I did purchase some sunflower fabric last week. I added it to the group Stash Sunday.

Seasons

Seasons

I have to use every bit of space I have. The sunflower quilt project hangs on the front of the door. This is what has been behind the door for years.

It is called “Seasons” I wanted to call it “Seasons in the Sun” but every time I say the title I think of the song.  I then get the song stuck in my brain………….

….we had joy we had fun we had seasons in the sun….

This quilt has quite a story. It was a group project with my Tuesday quilt group. One year we could ask the other ladies to make us a block. I asked that they each choose whatever block they wanted but to make it 4″ . They could make from 2 up to 16 blocks. I gave them inspiration fabric.  My intention is to have these 16 sets around the perimeter of the quilt and then to have a garden of wildflowers in the center.  We’ll see!
