Little stars, medium stars, big stars. I’m seeing them all. The large ones made with 1″ 60-degree diamonds, the medium with .74″ diamonds and the little ones with .50″ diamonds. All printed on my fabrics with various Inklingo 60-degree diamond collections.
The large ones are for the tumbling stars quilt. The medium ones will be incorporated into a mug rug or mini quilt. The little ones? I’m playing with an idea for another miniature doll bed quilt and of course I’m starting out with some pink stars. This miniature will have a variety of coloured stars in it, all made with batiks. They’re a treat to stitch – one load of stitches on the needle and the little seam is done. It takes no time to make a few of these stars. In fact, it took longer to print and cut 42 diamonds than it took to stitch two of them. And if you have used Inklingo, you know it takes no time at all to print. And rotary cutting with the perfect cutting lines takes no time either.
A few seconds and the seams are graded.
There are no flowers on the roof garden yet, but the gardeners have been busy out there getting things ready. We are having such glorious weather that I keep wondering if they might break the rules and plant before May 24. But I suppose not as that would be tempting the cold weather to come back.
After a busy day watching out the window and listening to the birds, Baxter was lounging in his kitty bed guarding his toys. Shortly after this photo was taken, he was sound asleep using the catnip banana as his pillow.
