My Tiny Stars project has returned to UFO status. I just couldn't summon sufficient interest to keep working on it. Other ideas are calling to me. So I packed it up and stored it away with my other UFOs, waiting for the day it interests me again.
This is what has been calling to me:
It is a pattern designed by Lynn Wilder called The House on Edgewood Lane. I saw this quilt on Lynn's blog a while back and bought the pattern but was intimidated by the central applique block. I have very little experience with applique. But lately I've been inspired by Thelma. Thelma has been learning to do needleturn applique, working on a rather ambitious project but taking it slowly.
I think as long as I don't delude myself into thinking I can get this done in a weekend, I'll be fine. I'm planning to make the central applique block with the house as per the pattern directions. But I'm going to modify the pieced part of the quilt so I can downsize it to a wall hanging. I'll be using part of this Beach House bundle, the part left over from the Tiny Stars project, plus some odds and ends from my stash.
Wish me luck...and patience!
