Starry progress and a finish

A year ago Darlene from A Needle Pulling Thread quilt shop gave a challenge to make a 6"star block each week for the year.  I decided I would join in , sounded like fun and it really was , I loved making these tiny stars .


Here are my 52 stars plus I made the larger stars for the center to make this a little larger , still not that big so a border is probably in the future but not right now,  I have to ponder on that for a little . These stars were all made from a FQ bundle I won a few years back and are called Lined Dried , they have an old fashion quality to them and remind of the dresses my grandmother wore or her aprons as well . Darlene has another challenge this year but I think i will pass , just too many other things on my plate .
Now for my little finish , you must all remember that I also have a love of all things wool, well last fall I started this sewing roll but didn't complete it until this week . I only had a small amount left to do so not sure why I put it off .

The black wool was once a scarf that I felted , so yummy and soft , almost felt guilty cutting,  almost lol . Here is the inside ....

It has a place for everything so will be extra handy to take along for handwork.  This is a pattern by Lynne Hagmeirer of Kansas Trouble fame. I found the pattern in a book by Lynne called Seeds of Time.

I am on the run tonight so thanks for stopping by and hope the world is treating you well .
Hugs Sheila

  16. Love the star quilt and of course the pouch as well. It is hard to cut into something you made though, I agree.
