A Star 🌟 in my Galaxy 🌌 1

ScrapHappy April is complete … my Shiro quilt is complete now onto the next one. This one is for me !!!

It’s a simple simple one and I’m using the same fabric I used for my Starry Night hexie runner and I’m mixing it up with plain blue and it’s all squares. I want to try my hand at QAYG and was thinking this will be a good way.

I have done FMQ on the top (no surprises there🤩) I’ve only done one square at the moment as as we are off on the motorcycle for a weekend trip 🏍🏍

Here’s a preview 🌟

………

SHIRO !

SHIRO in Japanese means white or Castle.

In this case both meanings are appropriate as the quilt I have just made is White and the person I have made it for loves everything white…

Her name is Sarah & she’s my sons girlfriend. Her bedroom (which is her “Castle”) has everything white in it … so I think she will like what I have made her.

She loves the FMQ that I do & loves Rag quilts as well. Being white its been a process of being very careful so that it doesn’t get dirty. Well thank goodness I’ve not spoiled it !!

And so another gift done & the next one follows…..

ScrapHappy April

It’s here again … the time of month I love coz I see all the lovely ScrapHappiness 🤩

My contribution this month is another table runner…. 🌟 I find this a lovely way of trying new blocks as it’s not too big and I can see results pretty quickly.

I had bought this layer cake from spotlight . There was only one in the bin and I grabbed it as it was cheap as chips. I made a wall hanging and had some pieces left over so decided I would use it making a runner as these make the best presents as well.

My sis has been using the Christmas runner I made her and she doesn’t want to take it off 🤦‍♀️. So I decided this scrappy one will be hers. Hopeful she likes it 🤩

Here’s to the next month of ScrapHappiness 💝

Starry Starry Night 🌌

I’ve got a few projects on the go at the moment & I popped into spotlight on Sunday to buy some more thread….

Going into spotlight means one definite thing and that’s to look at the specials bin… sure enough there were lots of things there I wanted to buy…😃

There were cut pieces in bundles and looked perfect for hexies… there were only two lots of 40 pieces about 3” square… i looked at them and picked them up and put them back again but I couldn’t resist… I just had to bring them home with me. I love making table runners and table mats so thought I could think up something when I brought it home.

I started covering the paper pieces and put them into bundles and once those were done I decided on this …..

When it’s all put together it reminds me of a starry starry night 🌟🤩🌟
