I'm Still Here

Are you still there?  It has been a long time since I've posted, but I've sort of been in a quilting "funk" since I got home from the mainland.

Things perked up again this weekend, with the completion of a UFO:


It was good to see fabric scattered on my worktable again!  The quilt pattern is from the book "Scrap Frenzy" by Sally Schneider (That Patchwork Place).  It's called "Woven Star."  I started this quilt several years ago and I was surprised and pleased at how much of it I had already prepped.  Here is the quilt in progress on the design wall:


And the completed top:


That's all I have for now, except this one little tidbit:


It's the start of my "One Foot Square" donation for the SAQA auction.  Hopefully, I can get it finished in time.

This week I'm off to Washington, D.C. for a work-related trip but, joy of joys, I get to stop in LA over the weekend to see my mom and go to the IQF quilt show in Long Beach.  Whoo Hoo!

I'll report when I get back.  Thanks for hanging in there with me!

Lovely work - well worth waiting for..... Sometimes I take a while before posting something new on my blog, life gets in the way and you have to be ready, not just post for the sake of it.

I love the star pattern, what did you use for your wall quilt to stick ideas up with this is a great idea but I have never seen anything like it in the UK
