On the cutting table

There's a new project on my sewing table.  I should be working on burying loads of knots in this quilt, but after burying about twenty of them, I'm taking a break.  Threading the needle over and over gives me headaches, thanks to presbyopia.  Also, two lines of quilting need to be ripped out and done over. 

So I took out my lovely Rosette yardage and started cutting.  The quilt pattern is from BHG's Antique Quilts and is called Vintage Stars. 

Very unlike me, to cut into newly purchased fabric!  I usually let new prints sit and marinate for a while in the stash.  But I've been wanting to make Vintage Stars for ages, and the stack of Rosette sitting on my sewing table seemed a perfect match.

Now I've got three quilts in progress.  Next week the older kids are back and school, which may or may not mean more sewing time to work on Vintage Stars, 41, and Kieran's brick quilt.  The little guy may be clingy until he adjusts to not having "the Big Kids" at his disposal at all times!  

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.  Go on over and take a look at what others are working on today!


  1. Interesting looking piles of bits there!

  2. Ooh, your cut fabric looks like they'll make a cute quilt! I'm looking forward to finding out what Vintage Stars looks like. :)

    Aw, poor Kieran. More cuddles for you, though! Kazuo had two weeks off from school, and now that it's back in session, he keep saying he doesn't want to go. Preschool is only playing, though! :D

  3. I really like the colors in that pile of fabric! Vintage Stars is one of my favorite quilt patterns. i haven't ever made one but it is on my list.
    have fun.
