Progress on the starquilt

A welcome escape from the nearly unbearable heat in Paris:
a day in Dominique's garden,, but even here we had to go inside for lunch and the rest of the day.
I didn't work at all, looked at the girls goin'on with their projects and passed time reading D's scandinavian decoration magazines VAKRE and JEANNE D'ARC. Whow, the kind of homes i just LOVE!




The stars are in steady progress, and i have the number required for the little ones.
I made little mistakes, partly due to the lack of space necessary for machine piecing and rotary cutting, and the mess here........ shame on me!

I can live with the little imperfections you may notice here and there.




Yestrday night, unable to sleep i started cutting in order to make the bigger stars.
I still find it difficult, but glad i did the experience, learning lots about machine piecing .
The machine pieced quilts i made until now were simpler ones, and the problem here is inserting little squares and triangles with a 45 degrees angle.

















I found these absolutely perfect boxes in the street in front of the whole food store: small and easy to put away, the only thing i had to do was to open my eyes and i will save them for another project.
Come back this weekend for more from the linen festival.
I'm not at all a football fan, but sunday evening i'll go to a café with a bunch of Dutch for the grand finale!
Will in Paris, hot hot hot!

Hoi Will, toch heerlijk als je die plaatjes van jullie in de tuin ziet, maar het is te warm, hier ook. Ik verplaats me de hele dag van binnen naar buiten.
Je hebt al flink wat werk verricht voor de sterren. Mooie blokken heb je al gemaakt.
Groetjes

Great idea on the boxes! when you live on an island, like I do, you take advantage of things like this when they come to you... :) I save too much maybe, but it almost always gets used. I've posted yesterday and and today about our shopping experiences and how I make my own laundry det. if you'd like to have a look.
Oh, how I love this red fabric! What is it about stars that is just so appealing!?!?!? THey are "happy!" sorry about your heat. It is reaching 100 here STILL and 98% humidity... ugh! XO
