Slow but steady

I'm making slow progress (but progress nonetheless) on my rose stars.
I've already cut all the pieces to make enough for a reasonable sized quilt. I figured I needed 23 stars and 4 half stars to end up with something that will be about 60 inches in one direction and kind of squareish. I'm not sure exactly how square it will end up being because the maths is making my head hurt (hexagons are tricky like that).
These bring the total made so far to 13 and a half. Just typing that has surprised me. I'm actually over half way there.
Of course, then there is all the sewing together to be done. I'm hoping that being on the home stretch will make that part seem faster.
I love this little fox. He has such poise!
It's so nice to have something that I can stitch in front of the telly, or while the kids are killing each other playing. It also has the added advantage of stopping me from eating all the cookies. It's a win-win.

Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Hm, I have a problem with cookies...maybe I should take up English paper piecing...these look great! :)

  2. These look wonderful! Do you have any tips? I have wanted to start this up, so that I have a hand project but to say I'm intimidated is and understatement. :)

  3. Hmm... I don't sew, so maybe I'll have cookies instead!

  4. Loving the Lizzy House fabrics on these pieces...absolutely fantastic!

  5. I find the rose stars perfect for tv watching too. Those Lizzy House fabrics look so cute in these blocks!

  6. These are so great! I love the fabric choices and I can't wait to see what the finished quilt looks like - it's lovely so far!

  7. These are really gorgeous! I'm trying not to think about how many I have to make - double bed size! eekk!


thanks for making my day!
