DOUBLE STAR QUILT BLOCK

I seem to be on a bit of a roll at the moment with tackling unfinished projects.  Perhaps it's because the weather is so awful that staying inside is the more comfortable option.  I made this double star quilt block some time last year and now I have decided to make it into a wall hanging.  There is so much white space in it that I'm really looking forward to the quilting.  It's a 20" square.

Last week I went to the Quaker Tapestry Exhibition in Ironbridge and then I completely forgot to tell you about it.  Unfortunately I wasn't allowed to take photos inside, but it was really interesting.  They had made tapestry panels of people and events important to the Quakers through the centuries.  The exhibition is normally based in Kendal but was appearing in Ironbridge for two weeks.  They also offered embroidery and tapestry workshops and kits, which is a great idea.

One more project that I want to finish this week is this charm pack batik lap quilt.  I think that I'm just going to stitch in the ditch because all the fabrics are so busy that I don't think they need much.  It's another small project, so I have high hopes of finishing it later this week.







In my last post I showed you the sailboat quilt blocks that I had made.  I layered and quilted them separately so that they can be used as coasters - probably for a child.  This will definitely be a good one for charity stalls because it was so quick to make.
