Hunter's Star

We had a Saturday Sew Day at my friend Karen's house.
We each brought our 2 fat quarters to try out the Rapid Fire Hunter's Star.
I chose a sunflower batik and a beige speckled batik.
Marty taught us how to use this amazing ruler...so simple!

The Rapid Fire Hunter's Star Ruler is by Deb Tucker and can be found here: http://www.studio180design.net/

I love sunflowers - such a happy flower with their perky lil' faces.
Now I just need to the get the other blocks made
 for a nice spring quilt to cuddle under.

Blessigs for beautiful sunflower days that make you smile,
denise  :D

Work-In-Progress Wednesday

Today is WIP (Works-In-Progress Wednesday) over at
http://freshlypieced.blogspot.com/ with Lee of Wisconsin.
Be sure to check out her blog and all the other Wednesday WIPs.  :)

For the past few years I have been teaching a Mystery Quilt
for a guild of which I am a member - El Paso Quilters' Association.

This particular Mystery Quilt is titled "Cathedral Stars".
The complete instructions can be found at:

For my version I used scrappy batiks.

Here is a close-up of the two blocks that make up the quilt...

I just need to add the borders to complete this lil' babe!
I plan to make a piano key border with these
strips that were used to make the 16-patch blocks.

That's my Wednesday WIP. 
What have you been working on today?

Blessings, denise  :D

More Itty Bitty Inchies

Today I wanted to share some more inchies that I have made.
These inchies all feature birds...I love birds.  :)
They represent flight (freedom) and nesting (motherhood)

This first series is titled "A Little Birdie Told Me".

 This series is titled "4 The Birds".

This final series is titled "Take Flight".

Spring is a perfect time to spread our wings and take flight...
to hatch new ideas and watch them soar...
and to sing a sweet love song of the beauty in our lives.

Sending birdie wishes your way,
denise  :D
