Only four more rockets...

... and then this baby will be ready to sew together.

This one turned out a little more funky than I imagined.  The print is a bit large for all those little pieces that make up the face... but there is no way I'm making another one!

And I included a somewhat pinkish star even though the quilt is more of a boyish design... hopefully not too much?

Isn't this one pretty?

And just to show that you can make an ugly wonky star.  There's only a few letters difference between wonky and wrong
My evening hand sewing is still struggling along, even though I had a wonderful project chosen to work on.

3 1/2 pieces sewn down

Which helps to fill up this lower section!  Only about 30 more pieces to go.  I get the feeling this is going to be very colourful, if nothing else :0)

I did focus a bit more on my little Tillies Lane blocks (which are perfect leader/ender sewing), and completed the desired 6 this week.  Next week I have more binding to sew down... as my secret project gets that much closer to completion.  Whew!


  1. I don't think that star is too pink at all. If anything the pastel one

  2. Blimmin ipad...the pastel one with the lilac centre is more feminine, but I don't think it needs taking out. The colourful effect is overall very happy and kiddy and boyish.

  3. It looks like you are having so much fun with the rockets and stars!! If you got the top together and the star still looked too girly you could always smother it with boy coloured quilting? Love your applique, it sure is colourful but that's how Kim's quilts are - and they look great with it :-)

  4. One little piece of pink does not make for a girly quilt! It's looking great!

  5. Loving that robot quilt! It looks great!
