February UFO---done!

My February UFO finished--yay!
Susie's World
pattern by Bonnie Sullivan for Simply Vintage magazine

I was lucky to find this old Thimbleberries fabric in my stash--perfect backing!

Awful photo, but you perhaps can make out the echo quilting I did around the wool applique?
Yesterday afternoon I taught a class using the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star ruler.
We had lots of fun and everyone left with at least one star made.

This one is Deb's before trimming--love the Edyta Sitar fabrics!

This one is Sherie's--she made a 12" block--she is trying to use up fabrics from her stash.
The top block is Kathe's and the bottom one belongs to Bunny.
They both used fabrics from their stashes--good to use up some stash to make a test block!

These are Helen's--so bright and happy--I think there is probably a finished quilt done by today!
All of the stars were so different and equally beautiful. 
I'm hoping to teach the class again in March--I think everyone was surprised at how easy these blocks came together.

  1. Cute quilt, Karen. I like that it is on black. So lucky with that backing fabric - perfect. Your students (and ergo the teacher) did a great job on those stars. Thanks for linking to WIPs Be Gone.

  2. So very, very cute!!! Love those darling kitties!

  3. The stars are beautiful, and all so different! Your finished UFO is wonderful...this is one cat quilt I'd never seen. HUGE kitty fan here.

  4. What a great UFO finish! You're right - that backing fabric is perfect on it. The cats are so adorable. :)

  5. A great finish even before spring has sprung. All of those L. Stars turned out perfect. I'll keep that technique and ruler in mind for any future stars.

  6. Very cute finish!
    Wish I could learn that ruler technique from you. I've always shied away from the LeMoyne Star!
