Blossom and Shine


I have been trying to keep up with Thelma aka Cupcake n Daisies.
We are working on a project together... 
do you want to see it?


I have a semi finish for Star Blossoms. It's a pattern by 
I had ordered the outside border fabric a while back but it 
still has not arrived.

But until then... I will take this as my finish!
I added my mistake units into the quilt as an 
inner border.
It worked out perfectly. All I needed to make was two more
flying geese and I had the number I needed!
Originally I was going to make the cornerstones scrappy
but I kind of liked the continuity of the border matching the 
cornerstones. I also saw that Thelma made hers with the blue
fabrics and I liked that look.
I can't wait for Thelma to show her Star Blossom!!!


I can't even remember which fabric I had ordered for the outside
border now... so I guess it will be a surprise!

I am a little stressed over the photos...
I have a new computer and I loaded Picasa
on to my desktop because that is the photo editor that
I usually used... but I can't get my photos to open up in 
Picasa for some reason... so for now the pictures
are just going to have to look like this.

Here is a quick and easy project I cut out this
week. The pattern is by My Red Door Designs.
 It's going to be cute... 
but first I need to get my AYOS project done for this month!


I am telling you that those pieces are super small...
thankfully it's a small quilt... so it can't take that
terribly long... right?
I think it is fun that this month's project is a free
 choice of Thimble Blossoms
mini patterns. 



My coworker/LAQ quilted this Shine
quilt for her client Mary. I took a photo
because Mary had taken a class from 
me to make it. Isn't is sweet?

Another Shine quilt was just delivered from
someone else in the class too! (hi Cathy).
It was made with Thimble Blossoms fabrics and
is so cute!

I like what you did with the Star Blossoms border. How smart to work your "mistakes" into a pieced border. It looks great!

Nice job on Star Blossoms. Love those elephants in your border corners, and your geese and border/posts fabric is terrific. Way to go!

I love your Star Blossom quilt! The flying geese border really adds to the quilt design. Congratulations for using a "mistake" to make a pattern your own.

I love how you used your oops blocks in the border, they had such a great design element.

Love the look of your Blossom quilt. It seems like such a happy quilt and your use of the geese in the border was a great solution to a slight hiccup.
