Cosmo quilt.........

Now remember this pic........well it's the book and ruler I have been working with making the quilt on the front cover........."Cosmo" by Anka's Treasures
Sandy and I have been working on this quilt for the last few days........well the truth is she found out I finally had started cutting and temptation was too great she had to get going too........but she has caught up and got ahead of me I think............
cutting the blocks.......... 
Piecing.......... 
 
2 triangle units joined together..............
 star backgrounds.....trimming i think........
EDIT should not look like below.......should be straight.......across
this was my progress last night.............i've got some more centres in the stars and worked others out and removed the 2nd block down on the right - it's bugging me........ I like the fabrics but they just weren't working in the quilt..........
Had some soup for lunch at 2pm and back out to the chookshed.......trying to get a row or 2 pieced........
Check out Sandy's @ Shiralee's Stitches progress (completely different colourway) and yes Sandy I am impressed you were able to follow our instructions to do a post from your phone........that should fix the blog silence............

Also is anyone else working on any quilts from this book...........
.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue.........

  1. I have the book and ruler but think I will start with the cute Christmas tree mat first. There are a few other things I have to sew before I start anything bigger. I always get tempted with new ideas and gadgets.
