A Few More Stars

If it wasn't for a few friends throwing some more squirrels (new shiny projects) my way, I would probably finish all these stars for Sarah Fielke's BOM this month, maybe even this week.  We are supposed to pace ourselves through the year to use them to balance color in our quilts but they are oh so much fun to shop my stash for!!
 Here is Mr. Angry Fish and what I believe is a Ray  (both from my Australian fabric fussy cuts)
 I think the kangaroo is an obvious choice, the other center block is an Australian fabric as well.
 Blocks 5-8 sitting pretty together.
And this is what I have done so far for Month 1 of Sarah Fielke's Happy Days BOM.  You can find info on the BOM here, still would be easy to join in if you would like!

One of the shiny new objects tossed my way is secret, so no sharing but the other is something to be shared...
I am going to use this long stashed away jelly roll and join into Doreen's (of Aunt 'Reens Place) new QAL.  She's calling it the Big Leap Sew Along.  Use the link to find the cutting instructions and come play with us!  Leap Year is a nice quirky thing to celebrate with a quilt, yes?!!

How rude of your friends to throw shiny things your way. LOL I would NEVER do that to you...whoops, but I did! Some many beautiful stars in your BOM.

Love all the stars. That Australian fabric (sans bugs) is really fun.

Kris, the Australian fabrics looks so amazing as the centers of these beautiful blocks! Wow, when you put the quilt all together, it will be one that will be fascinating to look at closely. Love that low volume background too.

I am glad see he added a few other fabrics along with the bugs ones. Those fabrics sure are pretty! What is that background fabric you are using? Perfect pairing on those beautiful blocks. Distracted by shiny things? You? Nooooo!! ;-)
