A welcome roundup!

Today saw the end of my Welcome Wallhanging class.  Here are a few of the finished ones:

For most of the ladies, this was their first introduction to free motion quilting, and they thoroughly enjoyed this sketching technique.  

Well done girls for being brave and trying something new!  The results are amazing!  Display with pride & big cheesy grins!

Tomorrow is our 2nd meet up of the Bee Blessed group.  We will be piecing together many of the wonky star blocks we have received and made.  Thank you everyone for donating stars - from all over the world (I received 2 today from Morocco!).  I'm really excited about showing you the pictures of the pieced quilts.

I also received these lovelies in the post today:

There's something retro 70's about these prints I think!  Or is that just me feeling my age today?

Laura Jane is Miss October in our Brit Bee, and has themed this month as STAR month.  We get to do whatever we want, as long as it is something to do with stars.  Can't wait!  And thanks LJ for the treats too (what's the betting I won't get any as soon as my 3 see them!!).

And last, but not least, a glimpse of a wee charm pack pattern I'm working on (test driving it out on some of the scrappy charms I won from Pickle Dish a while ago - love these colours).

There will be another row down the right hand side - my design board isn't big enough!
Happy Friday everyone!
