Busy Week with my quilt and Beach Hut

This is the quilt I am working on at the moment. It's called 'Twin Stars,'  from Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Linott. The fabric I am using is Moda's French General which I bought at a quilting show in Duxford last spring. There are 17 blocks like this one,
squares and flying geese and these are all completed.
And 18 blocks made up of half square triangles and flying geese.
Not easy!
Here are some laid out, I like it.... a lot!
It hasn't been easy and my unpicker has been used constantly, but I feel I am winning as I only have 9 more blocks to make of the triangles and flying geese and the fabric is all cut out ready.

 

 And my progress of my cut through Beach Hut has had frogs hopping by this last week too.
Don't you just hate that, each  evening having to unpick some of what you had stitched the night before... arg!!!  LOL

But I stitch on and enjoy all I do..
 
Happy days!

Somedays everything just seems to flow and is effortless; other days, if it can go wrong it will go wrong. Love the quilt. It will be beautiful when finished!

Chris ... Your quilting is the second batch I've seen this morning. I commented to the first person that she is almost making me want to start quilting again! Now I come here & find this! Sigh! If only we could do it all. Your quilt will be beautiful when it's done.

Love the patterns and colors of your quilt! Your little Beach Hut looks great - hopefully no more frogs. :)
