Feathered Star

Carole is making Feathered Stars too, and her version has a lacy (with a c, not a z !), elegant feel to it that I don't think I have seen before. I look forward to seeing more of this project !

More of Kathy's Owls

Another batch of Kathy's wonderful Owls.
This time, I recognize some of the non-owly fabrics, and remember them as being pretty ugly when I tried to use them. Amazing how the right person can make fabrics sing ! because after seeing them being used here, I'm (almost) sad that I didn't get more than a charm-pack of them. Cute blocks with gorgeous fussy-printing.

Sunflowers at Sea

Nancy in Alabama has made this beautiful little wall-hanging.
She writes :
I finished a small Double Sunflower quilt for my breakfast room. I used shapes from the 6" Storm At Sea collection for the border. The Storm At Sea is so versatile

Double Sunflower uses both the 6" and 12" Sunflower collections. And what a lovely idea to use the Storm At Sea shapes for the border.

Project is 16" square.

More Feathered Stars with Owls

Kathi also keeps on with her Owly Feathered Stars. They really are specacular. Notcie the pentagon centre in one ! (and please disregard that I couldn't find my way to turn one of them on its head, even though Kathi asked it). More of Kathi's Feathered Freinds Stars can also be found in this post.


Kathi has started making these lovely blocks, using her collection of Owl Fabrics. Must be a huge collection. She is using the 150 % POTC collection, that is, the larger size of the 90-degree hexagon shape that is also used in the Patchwork Of The Crosses. Try clicking on the individual pictures to see more details. It is worth it.
