raffle winnings


At the FQ retreat last year I was lucky enough to win a jelly roll of salt air and just before Christmas I finally started to cut into it



These stars are easy enough to make, but I managed to mess up slightly which meant some time consuming rectification. However, its all done and I have completed 2 out of 4 stars

I had decided that as I had won this through an amazing get together that whatever I made would be donated. I am hoping that the siblings together quiltathon is going to happen again this year as I think this will be perfect

So, just two more to do. It may take a while as my next lot of studying has arrived :-( but hopefully I can crack on with that. I think these stars would also be fabulous in white, greys, lime and black - something for me to think about.....

  1. Your stars are stunners Catherine. These will be a beautiful Siblings Together quilt. They would certainly be very striking in white, grey, lime and black - definitely worth a go!

  6. These stars look great. They do look quite difficult though. Did they take long?
