I've been helping a lovely lady get her blocks finished for her Brit Bee Star quilt.

Using some of her luscious fabrics I made up 2 star blocks:

Terri's star blocks

The first one is from this tutorial. The 2nd one is from a template I had been asked to use in a previous bee.  But I completely forgot that when I made these blocks before they finish up less than 12.5", due to sizing differences when downloading the templates.  Darn!  I have a sieve for brains!

Thankfully the blocks are still useable, phew!

I also got these blocks made for Bee Blessed, using this tutorial:

These are such fun to make! Thank you everyone for sending in such lovely blocks this month.

I also got my nephew's Plus quilt quilted today, and am looking forward to an evening in front of the telly sewing on the binding!

Have a great Wednesday!

P.S. The concert last night was brilliant!  The only tears came when my bum went numb after sitting for 3.5hrs! LOL!
