Winter stars


100_4221
I joined another swap you can see it on my side bar. Lala  is hosting her first swap and she would like winter white. I love winter, love swaps and love winter whites so I had to join.
I have to have the blocks in by the end of Jan but I found my block and picked the fabric out of my stash and have had a little time in between working double shifts and some back problems to get them done.
My theme is starry winters night, it seems that the stars really shine at night so I hope they like it. We are to use any fabrics that remind us of winter whites. Once I got the fabrics and the pattern I got these done in no time the required size is 9 1/2in. unfinished.

all 12 are ready now to be shipped and then I will get 12 different blocks from different parts of the world. I will have my own cuddle quilt for winter.  I tried to pick fabrics that would not relate to christmas but to winter itself so that it can be used all winter long…the cold winds blowing under the winter stars. What I have to do now is think of my layout on assembling the blocks and what fabric to use inbetween my blocks. Think icy cold winter...love it.

Also a slow cooker comes in handy when you want a pork roast…
I hope everyone stayed healthy and had wonderful holidays.
2013 looks very promising with new projects to start and old ones to finish, I will be adding some new links on the sidebar for BOM`s in 2013.
Can`t wait to see what you have in mind for the new year.

  1. I can hardly keep up with my own projects, let alone making things to swap.

  5. I like your idea for your swap blocks - and for cooking a pork roast. It's my very favorite kind of roast. I hope it was delicious!

    (Google won't let me sign in with my wordpress account anymore and it's where I am now. Oh well.)
