no design space left

 This was Buddy checking out some quilts on the bed I was getting ready for a Trunk show that I was going to do in North Bay
Here is the prince now on the quilts piled up for him to enjoy..hard to work with such a great helper. 
I had the joy a couple of weeks ago of teaching Eleanor Burns Radiant Star class you can see all about it on Rosemarie`s post she posted the pictures, cause silly me did not bring a camera. left at home in another bag that I was going to take.  There were 16 enthusiast quilters and believe me they were very prolific and getting work done!

This is a FQ package that I am getting once a month from The Cottage Quilter in North Bay they are only 20 for 10 FQ and she sends a pattern that will make up the FQ I am trying to keep up so that I can have a new one done every month. 

The stars above are from a kit I had bought when Quilters Palette went out of business. Lots of Y seams i have most of the stars done a few more and I can put them all together with the fabric I chose. can`t wait

This has been my sit down job, I had a bad bout of pneumonia and so when I was at my friends house she had this pattern flagged I loved it! Well it is free on line from McCalls Quilting so I have been digging in the never ending pit of scraps that I have and have 40 prepped already about 10 are appliqued on...I am really trying to reduce my scraps....really
