QCA Stars Bee 2014

These are my contributions to Quilt Club Australia's paper piecing stars quilting bee.  All designs are based on Carol Doak's book "50 Fabulous Paper-Pieced Stars".  This was a 10-month quilting bee (from March to December 2014).

Ohio for Alissa in lime green & grey on a white background.

November 2014
is next...
This is my queenly rule.  My colour specifications are:
Background: plain black. 
Main feature colours: lime green and aqua/teal. 
Highlights: orange, yellow, purple, white, hot pink. Prefer if you could use solids, batiks or tone on tones for the coloured areas if possible (ie no patterned/print fabric.)

I haven't had the time to make myself a test block yet, however, I will post photos of the blocks that I receive once they all arrive.

  1. Hi I'm a very new quilter (about 30 years I did some patchwork, quilting & candlewicking - only just started again). I think the 2015 Bee could be a fun way to get into the swing of it again. How would it work? BTW - I'm in Canberra ACT

    1. Hi Katherine, We have not got enough members for the stars bee however there may be a vacant position in one of the other Quilt Club Australia bees. Most start up in January. If you join the "Quilt Club Australia" group on Facebook and post the question to the group someone should be able to advise you what is available. ps I have updated my advert on top of this page, I had completely forgotten about it thank you

    2. NOW got not not got - typo - aghhhh shoot me (sorry)


Thank you for your feedback.
