Friendship stars and card tricks
As part of the October challenge over at Modern 8 Create, I had to create a card trick block. This is the first time I have been really successful with this block. I actually made two of them, cut apart the second one and created this.
If you want to see more interesting things people are doing with this block, head on over to Modern 8 Create.
I also spent some time working on Hokule'a. I built a stack of friendship stars out of old shirts, a muumuu, and some bright gold batik. This is where she is now,
I have decided to keep the star in the lower right corner as I build the quilt. I am actually listening to what the quilt wants on this one. I have quite a bit of Hawaiian fabric left to use from yardage I bought when I lived there as from clothes we no longer wear. I have another quilt in progress using some of this fabric. I will show it later when I get more done.
The last thing I did today was make my September quilt for AAQI. I am calling it Calm. Be sure and check out the other mini art quilts for sale over at the AAQI site.
Joyful quilting, everyone.
