Those last four rockets got made during the week, and even sewn together to form the quilt centre. Woohoo!! I like how the colours play so nicely together. This was a mixture of remnants (bigger than scraps but leftovers from other projects) and small scraps for the star points, plus a light blue homespun background.
After a discussion with my quilting buddies, it was agreed that I should use some of the black star fabric I purchased as the backing, and add it as a medium size border. I can always add a bit of variety to the back if it turns out I haven't quite got enough fabric for both areas. I have my fingers crossed... ever the optimist... but I'm really pretty sure that there won't be enough for both. Variety is a great thing!
I have also been busy stitching down this binding on my secret project. I love this text print - and it makes an amazing binding! More on the secret project probably next month.
Not much else happening on the quilting front. However, if you happen to read Ms Lotties blog (The Slightly Mad Quilt Lady)... you'll know that she has started recording quilt related pod casts. For those of you who like to listen, perhaps as you sew... it is a mighty fine was to multi-task - and learn a bit about what's going on around the world.
This episode she bought her voice recorder to our once a month Saturday quilting group (this time at my place), and recorded as we discussed this and that. Then! She interviewed me! The evil woman!
So, if you want to know what I sound like. Learn a bit more about me and how I see the world. Find out how this quilt came about....

Be sure to let me know if you have a listen - and let me know how terrible my accent is! Or if you would like more information about any of the things we discussed. You have been warned!
