Stars and more stars.....

I've been quilting up a storm, well maybe not a storm exactly but a few stars! This is my block a month from last year, Star Struck. My Teacher and fearless leader is Sandra from Elkstone Studio. She is a wonderful instructor and so patient and very inspiring! She does all my longarming and what a beautiful job she does! You can find Elkstone Studios on Facebook.

Here is my little mini quilt, I'm starting out small for the FMQ.....


My Hexi Garden, all in batiks...

Here is the wedding quilt for my granddaughter....... everyone can sign this quilt, it will be on the guest table...........

 Didn't Sandra do a wonderful job on the quilting!!! It was a lot of work piecing all these stars, but I think stars are still my favourite blocks to make!

Hello World! Is anyone still out there?

So I know I have been missing from blog world, I'm so sorry but I seem to have found a few distractions;

With all the grandchildren growing up so fast and my new found love of quilting, somehow the time has slipped away! I have been sewing away making quilts for the grand babies, I still have more to make!! Don't forget I have fourteen of them, so I will sharing photos of the rest as soon as I can. This is one of the munchkins embroidering and another munchkin with a quilt I made!!
Thank you for not forgetting about me..... I promise to be back to my French Bear blog sooner than a year!!!!
