Stars on Tatiara Terrace 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

Another project file with five fabrics in a similar colours range, but with enough contrast to show the overall design.

I prefer the second design. It just needs some yellow/gold to represent the national colours of Australia.

Christmas Star for Selina 1, 2 from Virtual Quilter

I have had some fun with colours out of my comfort zone in project files I have been playing with for years. Colours are as I said, out of my comfort zone, but I like the designs!

Like the second design more than the first. Perhaps the colours are growing on me.

Quilting Julianne’s Star 4, 5 from Virtual Quilter

Love it … but wondering if I would quilt it with contrast thread, or match the background colour, or perhaps a mix of the two.

Love the second one too!

Very feminine!

Not to mention, pretty!

The butterfly fluttering by is pretty too!

Stars on Ramsey Terrace 5, 6 from Virtual Quilter

Love it!

This project file uses 15 very similar star blocks and I love how the individual blocks link with each other in designs.

Love the second design too!

Vivienne’s Star Quilt 9, 10 from Virtual Quilter

Intricate blocks, but all straight seam piecing, and using the background fabric for some of the pieces to create the border. The first design is really a pieced medallion … a central block with three borders.

I love the second design.

SPLENDIFEROUS from Nestlings By Robin


Thank you again to 
the Quiltmania team
for showcasing my work
so beautifully!!
If you click on the Simply
Vintage link above you 
can purchase your own copy.
Here were the original layouts 
for this design and it would be
so fun to make a center pieced
medallion and add the applique'.
Then I started playing with
a long wall hanging and 
layering the applique' sets
from the 4 way layout.
It is just so cheerful and a
 bit smaller.
Then I was onto fabric selection.
One of the color ways was done
in peaches ...

Fran’s Five Patches 1, 2, Sampler from Virtual Quilter

A new selection of blocks, which is really a lot of modified versions of one block. This gives me a heap of blocks which are all based on the same grid, in this case five patch, which fit together at the outer edges, and have some features which match in the centre of the blocks.

I prefer applique to piecing, so I have added a butterfly, just because I can.

Star for Selina 15, 16 from Virtual Quilter

I don’t usually like star blocks, but I like this collection …

… and the designs I have found by mixing them up.

Stars on Ramsay Terrace Sampler, 1, 2 from Virtual Quilter

Fifteen blocks, all slightly different, but I think they might work well together. I have added two joiner blocks which will come into use sometimes!

So here are the first new designs for 2021, and from a new project file.

I got this far, and had to add those joiner blocks.

Yes, that works for me, especially in the border!

Next task is to add some quilting motifs, based on the block designs!

Vivienne's Star Quilt 3, 4 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting, and I like the colours. All the blocks are variations of just one block, and the quilting lines are also based on that one block.

More blocks, more interesting.
