The star within

Hello. Sorry it's been a while, life is getting in the way a lot! Between hospital appointments, physio, secret sewing and preparing for, then recovering from a rather hectic weekend visiting Download Festival last weekend, there hasn't been a lot of time or energy for blogging. I thought I'd pop by today to share a finished mini quilt top with you. I started this mini, for the Anna Maria Horner mini quilt swap on Instagram, way back in April and the deadline for posting is looming fast so I had to pull my finger out and finish the hand-piecing pronto! I've got a nice hole in my finger for my troubles but thankfully no blood has been shed ;) As usual I've pieced this using Aurifil thread for no irritating tangles.
I've called this EPP block "The Star Within" for what I hope are obvious reasons. Finishing up at 24" square this mini has taken more hours than I care to think about to piece by hand so I really hope that my partner will love it as much as I do. There are fabrics from three or four different collections by Anna Maria Horner in this one and I just love the riot of colour. It's going to be tough to part with this one when it's finished. I just need to decide how to quilt it then get it in the post by the end of the pressure! Hoping all is good in your corner of the world. Catch you soon x


  1. This is beautiful R! And very you with all that wonderful colour! Hope you are keeping well, and not overdoing it (ha ha!) Jxo

  2. This is just stunning, I am sure your partner will love it too. x


Lovely comments read with glee everyday.
