Lucky Stars

Didn't I tell y'all that this was a Food and ART blog?

During my Christmas vacation this year I started a quilt for my cousin in Australia and surprise surpise it's still not quilted. This is situation normal for me because I enjoy piecing but the thought of basting a top so I can quilt it is not my idea of fun. My cousin's birthday is at the end of this month so I guess I'll be sending this one out to be quilted or else there's no hope of her getting it this decade! The pattern called Lucky Stars by Terri Atkinson. While I didn't set out to copy the pattern right down to the fabrics the colours are what my cousin likes and I have a swag of batiks so it was an easy choice. I enjoyed making the pattern so much that I'm making another one in autumn colours for my other cousin.

I had intended to take a picture of the quilt hanging on the clothesline but it has been a little windy here so I resorted to putting it on the floor which doesn't give you a great angle. I have come to the conclusion that putting a quilt on the floor is like catnip for cats.

Scooter says "I wonder if anyone is watching?"......

Guess not!

This is FUN

I'm off to sew my backing fabric together now. Stay tuned for the next instalment of Lucky Stars in a few weeks.
