a starry start

Making a bit of a start on joining up my stars this weekend
This sweetstar quilt combines lots of my favourite things
... scraps & stash,
... stars & hexis,
... plaid & just a little black

Makes me smile!
Linking up with Leanne & Nicky for November's 'scraptastic tuesday' over here at shecanquilt


  1. Oh, I love those stars! I'm so glad you're working on them again!
    No wonder it makes you smile! Such beautiful stars... 8)

  2. I'm impressed with the perfection of your inset seams, Linda! This will be a beautiful quilt!

  3. Love the addition of the black patterned fabric.

  4. What charming LeMoyne Stars. Have fun.

  5. They are very pretty Linda - looking forward to seeing it all finished!

    1. I’m having fun digging deep in my stash looking for combinations that go well together.
      And I’m hoping these muted colours - mixed up with a bit of black – will bring to mind those vintage scrap quilts that clash, but somehow in a lovely way. Fingers crossed!
      Thanks for stopping by, Linda

  7. So pretty!! Sweetstar is the perfect name.

  8. I almost missed seeing these! They are so lovely - I really like the polka dot background.

  9. Some lovely fabrics - all new ones to me. The black and pink is especially pretty and unusual.

  10. Oh this is looking fabulous! Can't wait to see more.

  11. Quite, quite pretty, hope to see more of this!

  12. Love a bit of black - it adds such drama! Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday!

  13. Both stars are so pretty and background fabrics are really sweet!Many smiles and waiting for to see more!

  14. Love the fabrics in both stars. If the others are as pretty, it's going to be stunning.
