ohio star quilt continued


I have nearly finished the blocks for my Ohio Star quilt. But I have run out of fabric and need only about half a meter in total to complete it:( 
I bought the fabric in a bundle of fat quarters back last year from www.tikkilondon.com. I came across this lovely shop in Kew when driving somewhere else. So now I will need to order more fabric on line. I am pleased with how fast I have been able to put these blocks together especially as all but two have been pieced by hand. I have an old cotton bed sheet for the sashing and a lovely vintage sheet to back it. I will buy cotton wadding for the middle layer...cant wait to get quilting. I will also do that by hand and really enjoy the relaxation of doing this.

Love the way you combined the stripes and checks - lovely quilt! I really enjoy hearing how you use 'finds' for much of your work to make for thrifty projects!

I can picture the bedroom right now, with something so pretty as this quilt, on the bed. The blue and white is a good combination.

These fabrics are a great combination for this block, I thought it looks like shirts.
