Early morning sewing

I was up early this morning and inspiration struck !!!!
My Ruby layer cake is now sliced and ready to make the "Hidden Stars" quilt.
I'm thinking that this quilt will be for Miss Lily's bed .
Feels good to have it cut and ready to go, as I was having trouble deciding on which quilt to make . There are so many nice jelly roll/ layer cake patterns in my books :) Tis okay will just have to make another couple later on .....

Needle turn attempt

Before starting my A Christmas Story quilt I had to decide whether I would needle turn or buttonhole the appliqu├ęs .... So I thought I better see If I could Needleturn .

So pulled out some scrap and made myself a pear. I don't think I did too bad for my first attempt

So Needleturn it is :)
