FO: Magic Stars

FO: Magic Stars Quilt

This quilt is completely because of my pal Charlotte (who is now on The Great British Sewing Bee!!!). After seeing this on instagram, I knew I had to make a nearly identical version. Blue is my most-represented stash color, and come on, it's lovely!

Aneela's pattern is fun and sewed up quickly!

It has become one of my favorite quilts, and I love the way it looks on our new quilt ladder.

I took so long to blog this finish that I have started a second version!

It was fun to choose a variety of yellow prints for this version. This is a great scrappy pattern!

FO: Amanda's Sew Together Bag

FO: Sew Together Bag

A few years ago at the Stash Bash, my pal Amanda was kind enough to work on some Sew Together Bags that I cut out. In truth, she did most of the tricky sewing, and left me with a mostly assembled bag to finish.

Earlier this year, I decided to stitch up one on my own, and give it to her as a (very late) thank you.

I love the way it turned out. I picked colors that I know she loves (and I do, too!).

I especially love the yellow quilting!

Here is a shot of the one Amanda (mostly) sewed for me. I use it to house my in-progress aerial grove quilt. And speaking of, I hope to make some progress on this quilt on an upcoming trip!

Yosemite

Yosemite Valley

We spent three days in Yosemite last month, and I hope it won't be my last visit.

Yosemite Valley

We saw waterfalls (which made me squeal), lots of elevation changes, a mountain lion! (no photographic evidence - we were all too shocked to take a photo, but we were in the car when it happened, so we were safe), huge trees, and amazing skies.

Yosemite

We hiked through Toulumne Grove and walked through this huge Sequoia.

It was incredible to be in such a place, and I don't think that feeling will fade.
