Sewing at the Cottage


We just got back from a fabulous weekend at the cottage.  Sunday was beautiful and all the kids and kiddos were there with us enjoying the day.

Saturday was a sunny but breezy day. I thought I'd dig out the sewing machine for the first time all summer.  I cut a sweet kit that I cut last spring and it's been waiting for a rainy or breezy day.

The pattern is called Star Light and is from a June 2005 McCalls Quilting Magazine.  It's simple and with my limited room at the cottage, is just the right size.   In a couple of hours, I got the first step done,  which was pieciing the 12 main blocks.     Maybe next weekend, if the weather is cool in the mornings, I'll get step two done.  That's the sashing blocks which make the red stars.

so cute. I love the beige and red... nice warm cozy feeling when you look at it.
