Under the Southern Stars is a quilt designed bySue Daley that The Country Yard is offering as BOM. I am lucky enough to be making the shop sample.Now I have been making this since October...but you have to remember it is paper piecing.It is a fantastic portable project, I take it to do in the car (not when I'm driving!) or when we are on holiday.The quilt has 36 stars that are appliqued onto a background circle, then this is appliqued onto a background fabric.
When I had only 4 stars left to make, I saw on Sue's blog a tutorial using Sewline glue pen, go here to see the tutorial...this sure speeds things up.Well I suppose it will speed up the next paper pieced quilt I do, but I have finish this one first!!!
So here are the finished pile of stars, the rest are on display at The Country Yard as the centre of the quilt.
