Saturday Stitchers

 New England Cross Star Block
The New England Star Cross Block. In Christmas-y colors. Charming. I know I have seen another name for this block but I can't seem to find it. Some time ago I had a great book that was essentially an encyclopedia of blocks. It is currently in the wind, which wind.....? Who knows. Anyway, If you would like to fashion a nice little table runner or wall hanging for that one space that just needs a little something pop over  here to a Bright Corner  for the tutorial. 

A calm day in Sewtopia on a Saturday is rare. Usually,  a clean up and  a sort out of the clutter in the studio is all I can manage. Today should be a little more productive.  I am working on a gift quilt, can't show until after the Holidays and a wall hanging. A cheater panel to be exact. In the meantime, let me show you some projects from last weeks Sew and Sews group. Much more on the Harvest Tea next week.

Can you believe how cute these puffy stars are? Betty Jane got the pattern from Pat. She is getting one for me too. Love, love, love them .  They remind me of Starfish.

1930's fabric
Pat is such a prolific quilter. This sweet baby quilt in 1930's fabrics is one of two she brought along.

A close-up, wow, can't wait to see this finished!
tea theme topper
Love these colors too.
And last but not least, look at this adorable Tea Themed table topper! Karen brought it to grace our table for our Harvest Tea. It is so cute with the appliqued teapots and tea cups, perfect. Thank You Karen. Now, here is a hint. Notice the items in the middle of the table? The Hellman's Mayonaise jar and the Hellman's cookbook. More on that to come.

Something special about Saturdays. Look for something special to do for yourself this Saturday. It may be the last peaceful one for a while! Toodle-loo.
