A Little Update

There have been so many things that I've been longing to do, but told myself these Afternoon Delight double nine patches had to be finished first. It was hard, but I did it--yay! Now I can putter around doing other things guilt free--lol! 
I should be busy quilting this: my June goal on my quilting machine. I've been auditioning thread colors and may go ahead with this orange Aurifil. Just not in the mood right now. 

Earlier this month, I watched a video from Edyta Sitar (Laundry Basket Quilts) and thought her Broken Star quilt would be a perfect way to clean up some of the fabrics that are in piles heaps on my sewing room floor. Edyta suggested making eight blocks at time and that made it so doable, I couldn't stop.  

There are three different log cabin variations in the quilt. I almost lost my way making the all light blocks but finally got the hang of it which made the all blue ones easier to make. 

I decided to open the center of the middle star rather than making the solid blue star as in Edyta's quilt, but now I'm not sure if I like it this way. I also want to figure out something to make it a rectangle, so I still have a way to go before sewing the blocks together.  

I'm moving on from needle felting gnomes to baby rabbits. The plan is to make a cabbage leaf for him to sleep in, but haven't figured out how to do it yet...more to come on that.
I'm using the new Blogger on my laptop (no more phone posting for me) and had quite a struggle with the photos at first. I decided to take a lunch break and when I tried again it all worked perfectly--go figure. 
Hopefully it will be smooth sailing from now on! 


  1. Wow! Love your log cabin star. Now, I have to go check what Edyta did. So awesome. Your bunny is the cutest one. Great job! ;^)

  2. I love the bunny! My first thought was that he (she?) was laying in a microwaveable bowl holder. And then I thought the shape of what he/she is laying in is kind of cabbage-y looking. What if it was made out of Kaffe Fassett's cabbage print fabric? I don't know if it's still available, though. Maybe somewhere on line? Anyway, just a thought.

  3. love your log cabin!! I haven't touched my Afternoon Delight in awhile - I need to get some of the applique blocks started - I am not making my quilt in the group that some are doing but just as I wish

  4. Your Broken Star quilt is stunning!! If you don't like your open center I will give it a good home. ;)
    Oh, that little bunny is absolutely adorable!

  5. The log cabin blocks look great as a star. Lovely in the blues.
    And your little bunny is a delight!

  6. Your Broken Star quilt is going to be beautiful! I love log cabins and in blues, even better. I was always going to try needle felting but haven't yet.

  7. This bunny is funny and adorable and your quilt stunning !!

  8. Your blues and lights are so beautiful together! I do like the variation of the blocks. Inspiring some thought here :-)
    I finally switched over to the new Blogger as well. I haven't noticed any real big difference yet. I was able to make a post and pull in my pictures. So far I'm able to get comments as well so if there are troubles I'm unaware of them so far. I'm glad your struggles worked out. The bunny is very cute!

  9. I'm upgrading my internet service this weekend to hopefully reduce the upload time with the new blogger system.
    Your projects are all so lovely...that log cabin layout is gorgeous!

  10. Like everyone else, I love that log cabin star!! Can I why you have decided not to blog from your phone? That's my favorite way to do it so just wondered if I was missing something. Have a great weekend.

  11. I have admired Edyta's star design for a good while. Perfect choice for your blues.
    I know you are glad to have those Afternoon Delight pieced blocks done. Your just get it done attitude worked.

  12. Of course, you had all those lovely blue pieces in a pile. The quilt top is beautiful. The little felted bunny is adorable. I push myself too, saying I can't do something until something else is done. I'm not sure if that takes some of the fun away, but I do get things done. So do you.

  13. Love both of your projects. Your Afternoon Delight reminds me that I too have mini nine patches that I should return to one of these days. One of the joys of quilting? There's always a list!

  14. Such beautiful log cabin blocks. Once you get going they are fun and addictive, right? I also love your nine patches - little jewels - so pretty.

  15. Hi Karen, you are so wonderfully controlled to finish up something before getting to what you really feel like stitching. I wish I was more like that. Doesn't Edyta make great videos...she makes even me feel like I could stitch those pretty designs. Your log cabin blocks are beautiful. How do you cut your pieces? That is where I'd have an issue right away. And what a gorgeous bunny!

  16. Beautiful Log Cabin blocks! I confess, I would have gone a little cross-eyed if I were making them. Your needle-felted rabbit is adorable!

  17. Beautiful Log Cabin blocks!!!! Love the blues!

  18. Wow! your log cabin star is really spectacular!
    your double nine patches are so cheerful and colorful. Its one of my favorite blocks.
    Orange quilting thread looks good

  19. Lovely blocks you are piling up in various forms for many quilts. Sometimes these inanimate objects (computers) can just be really irritable with their unwillingness to cooperate with us, that is when I shut them down and they go into time out. Later they may just behave!
