Another glorious snow day

Too much snow to get to work today so I had a day at home, much of which was spent in my sewing room working on a new UFO. (It is now officially a UFO because it is started, but not done yet!) I purchased this material at Suttles and Seawinds in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia two summers ago. I have had this pattern in mind for the material for quite a while but just never got around to starting it. The pattern is called "Island Star". I'm getting a little tired of winter and all the snow so the colours of this material brightened things up for
me today

I cut out all the pieces a few nights ago so I was all ready to get down to sewing today.
Here are a four patches and the short star points.

The blocks are coming together...

And here they are, not sewn together yet, but at least you get the idea. I just love these colours.
The pattern is from a book by M'liss Rae Hawley called "More Fat Quarter Quilts".

I will post more pictures as I make more progress on this quilt.


  1. ahhh --- very nice! I love the blue and yellow together - and that big paisley is really cool.

  2. Ah, blue and yellow, 2 of my favourite colours. How much snow do you need for it to be a snow day? I want 1 or 2 or maybe a whole week of snow days. Please! Who do I have to see about that?
