Blue Stars for the Blue Ridge Quiltfest

I have no one to blame but myself for this one ... I suggested a block lotto for Quilting Forum members at the Blue Ridge Quiltfest. We are making blue & white star blocks. Here are mine:

Blue & White Star Lotto Block Snowflake Block Blue & White Star Lotto Block

Maybe it's the locale, but I seem a little stuck in blue land . . . The florals I am taking for Janet's Carolina Byways quilt workshop are predominately blue and I found this Blue Ridge Mountain photo to use as inspiration for the landscape workshop on Saturday:

I think a blue-gray gradation I dyed last summer is going to be perfect for this project.

(Tedious) Work in Progress

A few years ago, I sorted through all my stash and started storing things by color ... which made it so much easier to use (and also to see which colors I always buy and which colors I never buy). For a while, I've wanted to sort my scrap bin and I've finally made a start. Already I know this is going to be so much more usable ... but the sorting is tedious!


On the not-so-tedious front, I'm about to attach the label for the Quilt Studio charity quilts--thanks, Jeri, for getting the embroidered labels to me so quickly. I should be able to send this quilt on it's way this weekend.


Check out the pretty flannel fabrics Deb used for the backing ... and her wonderful, whimsical quilting.
