I thought I'd do a bit of a vote, and see which quilt was the most popular to get to the finished pile first. So check out the following, and feel free to leave a comment or send me an email to vote for your favourite:
This one even has a gorgeous bundle all put aside for a backing.
There's a square in there:
Oh Eiko... I love you.
And this one has backing and binding! This is the joy of finding fabric on special and just buying it. It also shows that you never know what you're going to get until it arrives. This fish fabric was described as a "feature fabric" - so I imagined the fish would be large. I didn't expect them to appear in rows and be in this scale (ha! pun alert!) But as the backing, I'm not too worried either way.
Rainbow Modern Sampler: OK, no backing or binding on this one yet, but with that rainbow gradient going on, I don't think it would be hard to find "something" amongst the stash.

Right, time for some fabric. My delicious little fat quarter purchases from The Country Yard. I may or may not be a sucker for florals... This large floral is from Tilda - Flowercloud dark slate.
And even a smidge of sewing. What I love about this star block is the lack of commitment required. I can make progress without even really trying. Cutting two fat quarters simultaneously sets me up to make two blocks. Then with a little bit of sewing, I have the block units pieced.
Then with a little bit more time... or another day... those little units get pieced into a pretty easily put together nine patch. So as one gets finished...
Another gets to the pieced units stage...
And this little skerrit of space provides the visual "this is how it's starting to look"
