'Check out the Stars".....on Ice!

This is my next quilting project using a mix of commercial batiks and my dyed fabrics.  I saw this quilt on Desley's blog here called "Check Out the Stars" and just fell in love with it.  I love blue quilts and since I have a lot of blue hand dyed and snow dyed fabrics I thought this would be the right design to use to start cutting into them.  Desley was great to send me a rough outline of her quilt so I could figure out how to make it.  I hope one day she finds the time to turn her designs into commercial patterns, they are amazing.

 These are frost crystals that formed on the ice last night.
They are about 1 inch long.

The lake was completely frozen over this morning as it got down to -21'C last night. 
Good bye water, see you next in May!


  1. It was amazing, wasn't it? Our bay froze over last night as well. Love the blue star block. A

  2. Lovely star lock with all those shining blues!

    Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..don't know if I could handle ALL that snow.

  3. I've just found your blog, and can see it's going to become a real favourite. I love your piecing, your quilting and your sense of colour - and am intensely jealous of the snowy backdrop to your photos!
