A Finished WIP

I made this quilt using Deb Tucker's Rapid Fire Hunter Star ruler (large star). 
Blocks size: 8" finished
Fabrics: From my stash
Size: 74 1/2" x 74 1/2"
FMQ by me

I bought the ruler last year just to challenge myself with something new (new to me any way) and I love it. The top was sitting in my sewing for a bit as I wasn't up for fmq it. I'm so glad now it's all done :))

I'm donating this quilt to my girls' school, La Salle College, Middle Swan in Perth WA, for a silent auction. They have annual music night on Thursday next week so it's a perfect timing ;))

Finishing My WIPs

Finish #1 Carpenter's Star Quilt

Fabric: Honey Sweet Layer Cake
Size: 79" x 79"
FMQed by me

Back of the quilt.

This quilt is for my SIL's 50th :))
Have to do the label now!

Finish #2 Lantern of Light

This is what its looked like a few weeks ago, I don't have a design-wall and I lay them out on the floor to arrange the blocks. This is what happens when I don't shut the doors to the sewing/games room. Our 2 little dogs like to walk/run over my blocks :P

viola... all done :))
Pattern: Lanterns of Light by Julie Wallace
Fabric: Japanese prints from my stash
Size: 60" x 70"

This is my first QAYG quilt.

Backing fabric is directional so I cut it into strips which are length of the quilt.
