another top done

The stars in this top are from an international swap called 'Starry starry night'  hosted by Jessamy in the Netherlands. Members of the newsgroup RCTQ joined  and this swap was held  several times and I think I joined  3 times. You had to send 6 identic stars and got 6 different stars back. Some stars are very complicated, some are sewn precisely, a few are sewn a bit sloppy, but I think they look great together.
I used blue and black remnants for the sashing and the border, so it's very scrappy.

So this goes on the pile 'to be basted and quilted'  :-)

In the meantime I rebasted this one and so far everything is going smooth.

LibRR 1 - a finish and wonders of our garden

Finally LRR1 is finished. I called it Red Dot, you have to look a while to know why ;-).
It's mostly machine quilted and additionally I handquilted around the circles and triangles and squares. It measures 23x23".

It's a cold and wet spring here, but nevertheless there's a lot of colour in the garden and a even lot of diamonds :

WIPs and PIPs

I'm still trying to finish some projects and have been successful in some small ones.

3 years ago I got a Featherweight for my birthday . We didn't have a good start together, actually after some sewing time I had to bring her to inspection, because I managed to make a big mess in the bobbin case.
Then I hadn't the courage again to practice with her until 3 weeks ago, when my Pfaff was away for a much needed service time. So I tried again with the FW and all went well. I even pieced her a protection pad, a cover and a drawstring bag, which parts had been prepared now for all those 3 years ;-)

And I pieced with her this block:

More finishes coming soon ;-)
