Some current projects

I have been having some fun working on a couple of different projects. 

Got all the stitching done. Just to trim the darker green to a consistent size. I will be ready next year!

Pattern from Bonnie Hunter. It is called wacky stars. Lots of scraps used. 

I have long loved these stars. These are made from half square triangles. Not sure where these are going but now I know how to make them. 

Dieuwke gave me this Tree of Life panel. Using silk thread I have outlined each element (flowers, leaves, etc). I am now working on the quarter squares to surround the panel. Fitting is a major challenge. Since I dont have a pattern I am not sure exactly what comes next. I am remembering (sort of) the lovely Di Ford quilt from Quiltmania - at least as an inspiration.

Keeps me "off the streets". <smile>


  1. Four new projects to work on! How fun! Lovely stars and a very cute Easter basket! The panel I know, it is always pretty in a quilt!

  2. Paul used to say that, that quilting kept me out of the bars and off the streets. LOL Love the things you've been doing. Very pretty Easter basket!
