.: AusModBee blocks for Julie :.

Julie is the Queen Bee of our AusModBee for June, and asked for 'stash-busting stars'.

We had free-range to make two 12 1/2 inch star blocks of our own choice.  Julie's fabric package was full of really pretty pastels in blue, pink and green.

Here are my two blocks.

Both blocks came from the fab book 'Shape Workshop for Quilters' by the Fat Quarterly team.

This one is called 'Eight Pointed Star' and was designed by Katy Jones of ImAGingerMonkey.

And this one is Wonky Star Nine-Patch and was designed by Brioni Greenberg of Flossy Blossy.

The blocks will hit the post to Julie tomorrow, to add to her growing pile of super-pretty pastel stars - they will all definitely come together to make a really sweet quilt.   

Vee and I got together today for a dummy-run of our first-ever screen-printing class, which is on this coming Sunday.  It was good to get back to basics - to draw up and cut out stencils, and print without using our super-awesome contraption that we screw our screens into, to stabilise them for printing.  We are now ready to roll - save for an epic packing-the-car session on Saturday afternoon.  

Hope your Monday was a good one.  xoxo cat
