I'm Back with Rose Stars

 Hello!  It's so nice to be back among quilty friends!  I was completely swamped with Girl Scout business for all of March.  It was good stuff, but it didn't leave much time for sewing.  I'm back now and ready to catch up!

The first deadline to meet is the 4X5 Swap and I'm actually ahead of schedule!

 I made Rose Star blocks using English Paper Piecing.  It was wonderful to have a portable project to tote around.  I even decided to hand applique them to the backgrounds.

The pink, orange and yellow block is mine.  I like to think I was slightly ahead of the tangerine tango trend!  I pieced mine twice because the test block was a little too big.

Aqua with a touch of orange and yellow for Hive 11's caretaker, Kathleen.

This one for Anna was a little tricky.  Plum, cerise, coral and papaya.  Did I get it?

This was one of the first ones I made.  Pale blues and Denise Schmidt for Christine.

Black, red & yellow for Leona.  So fun!

Cool blues and greens for Amy.

 I can't wait to see all of my 4X5 blocks together.  I've decided to pass on the next round, so I'll end up with 18 blocks to play with.

It's been s long since I've posted anything, I almost forgot about Sew Modern Monday!

See you again soon!
