Hello Friends, I hope you have been well. It’s been a crazy last couple of weeks trying to juggle everything that is going on! I fully believe one of these days, I will be able to impress my friends and family with the real juggling act at the park! But until then…
We have had some windy days, but temperature-wise, it has been great for my rose bushes. I am a novice rose gardener, and am bumbling my way through this rose gardening (or rather, gardening in general) business.
Meanwhile, I am not sure if you had seen this quilt. I set out to see just how many quilts I could make with the Ohio Star block. Over the years I have built up a collection of about 20 quilts using the Ohio Star blocks, enough to do an entire quilt lecture just on the Ohio Stars! I named this one Twinkle, Twinkle as a tribute to my daughter playing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars for a little over a year when she first started learning to play the violin (4 years of age at the time). It became a running joke among friends in that they would ask me if Gwen had graduated from Twinkle, Twinkle yet. Truth be known, seven years later, sometimes she still uses Twinkle, Twinkle to hone her skills.
Twinkle, Twinkle is now one of the latest patterns added to my Etsy Shop. You may purchase the pattern HERE. This design is FQ friendly — so, start raiding your stash! In the near future, I will do a blog post to share the tricks I use to make the Ohio Stars!
Here are a couple of versions of Twinkle, Twinkle.
And then, I have these patterns on their way to quilt shops — perhaps yours? If not, they are available as PDF downloads from my Etsy Shop HERE, or you could certainly have your local quilt shop order the paper pattern from me.
I am also really excited to have the quilt center of my Maisons de Patchwork (Christmas Edition) completed!
Now I just need borders!

And then, if I get all my ducks in a row, I will be cutting into these fabrics sometime this week…
And with that, I shall say good night/morning! It’s 1:57am! YIKES!
Have a lovely rest of your week — chat soon!
