Wonky Stars and Fabric Challenges

My daughter Hannah helped me make these 25 Wonky Star blocks to send to Australia for the Bush Fire quilt project. They went together so fast, with me sewing & Hannah trimming & pressing! While helpful Hannah was admiring the blocks she said "you know they are getting a ton of blocks, I think we should put this top together so they don't have too, Soooooo.....


here's the top. It's off in the mail on Monday, wrinkles & all.

Bush Fire Quilt Project Info here & here
There are several Bushfire Quilt projects going on right now, I chose this one because the star blocks looked fast, fun & easy to make & they were!

And in other news:


Judy at Patchwork Times has challenged us to make a quilt top totally from your fabric stash. She said you should be able to find your fabric
in 5 minutes or so! Well I think I almost cheated because I was given a stack of 30 Fossil Ferns fat quarters 4 years ago when I was working for a Bernina dealer. They were just sitting there all together on my cutting mat with big chunks taken out from making Wonky Stars so I thought why not!! Here are all my cut pieces.

Very generous of you to donate the Wonky Stars quilt. I might have had a hard time letting it go though...LOL. Nothing wrong with cheating on the stash quilt--if you love it, use it!
