Blogathon Canada and A Tiny LeMoyne Star

I’m proud to announce that I will be one of the host bloggers.

When the Inklingo Hunter’s Star collections came out and I saw those fabulous .75″ diamonds in the 6-inch Hunter’s Star collection, I knew I couldn’t resist them for long. I was right. Last night I chose a few 5″ squares and printed the shapes on them and seconds later I had a few sets of 8 to make some 2.5″ LeMoyne Stars. I can tell that making these tiny stars is going to be addictive!

Seams graded, block pressed and now I’m ready to make another and another and another and … well, who knows how many!

Baxter’s getting in some practice at the computer so he’s ready for the Canadian quilters’ blogathon.

After all that work, he curled up to rest in the pink chair.

  1. Cathi ~ I have been wanting to make tiny LeMoyne Stars ~ Does the Hunter Star 6″ collection have all the pieces or did you use more than one collection? Your star is adorable.

  2. The blogathon will be fun, it’s great that you are part of it!
    Now I learned something today from the toon, Baxter is a lefty! And who are all those little unknown kitties flollowing him around all the time, his fan club?

  3. Cathi – your teeny weeny Le Moyne Star is so cute! May I ask which collection has the background triangles and squares needed to make the block? These stars would make an adorable baby quilt or even a little dolls quilt.

  4. Looks like a great blog hop, I look forward to discovering some new blogs.
    Loved the baxtertoon from the last post. Now that’s a bunch of visitors I’d happily share my chocolate with (does Baxter like choc as much as my boy? Well, choc, ice cream, hot choc, yoghurt, cheese…)
