First up is the Delightful Stars quilt-along.
Here is my little machine all set up for sewing -- note the pretty pin cushion! ... it is one of those wristlet pin cushions and fits around my machine so well! As it is for using on your wrist, the pins don't go through the band so my machine won't get pin scratches!

Last week I did get the Kitty Quilt together. It now also has a white border (need to take another photo) and I'm just deciding about the next border.
This will be a knee quilt so it needs to grow out some more. I will use up all the leftover fabrics in the final border and probably for the backing too.
Although the sashing looks complicated, partial piecing made it a breeze. I can see myself using this method for lots of future quilts!
I know! I have the same two fabrics meeting each other, middle row on left but I'm not worried about that.
If I were to make this quilt again, I would simplify the eyes somehow as they were quite fiddly to stitch. The pattern actually machine stitched a lot of the features but I prefer to hand stitch.
