Uppsala Stars Modern: Finished and Bound
Uppsala Stars is a Sew You Learn teaching pattern I've created, and available through Craftsy. It's made with easy measurements, and ideal for a beginner to intermediate quilter to work through on their own. I hope you enjoy this new colorway.
Can you see the bunny hopping and

Detail of backing: off the frame and ready for binding
True confession: This was a finish from last week. I was waiting for a beautiful day to take pictures, and a dry spot to lay it in. The water has been running off our hill in a steady current for days, but there were a few high and dry spots by late afternoon. I fought the light, but as most of you know, sometimes it just is what it is.
No time to press out those folds this afternoon, but I'm still very pleased with the pieced backing.
This was a pantograph that actually arrived with my HandiQuilter longarm. It suited the quilt perfectly, I thought.
As I roamed around looking for dry ground, I stopped to smell the flowers. This Lenten rose is right outside my front door.
The daffodils were up against the treeline in the woods, and the little grape hyacinths have naturalized nearly everywhere after almost 30 years.
This all white Lenten rose never lifts its head to the light. I had to show you the beautiful green and cream striping. This was always the best plant to hide eggs under, but we have no one that age anymore. I'm sure there will be some in years to come, but the Doxies and I are happy to wait. And in the meantime...
Come on, Doxie girls.
Let's go sew.
