Too Hot

It's another sweltering day in Melbourne.
I went for an early walk while the air was still crisp, practised my new yoga moves, cooked, cleaned, did some school work and finally sat down to do some stitching but now I am just plain hot!
This weather doesn't mix with my internal temperature control. Hot from inside and out. I keep reading about snow and freezing on the other side of the world and it is hard to imagine. 

I machine stitched this quilt a few weeks ago around the main blocks.
Every block is the same but they look so different.
I love that!
 So, before I got too heated up, I hand stitched my first star.
This is the back of the quilt
And here is the front.
I decided to hand stitch the insides of each star rather than keep machine quilting.
There is nothing like using old cotton fabrics. They feel so cuddly and soft from all the wearing.


  1. I had to take another look as I couldn't believe that all the blocks are made with the same pattern. It's really brilliant how the fabric placement makes the blocks look so completely different. I hope it cools down soon. I really feel for you !!!

  2. Ooh, this is a beauty with all those shirt stripes and plaids. It's so interesting that they're all the same block. I would have never recognized it. Hopefully it will cool a little there and warm a little here--soon!

  3. Amazing how they look so different! I laughed when you were complaining it was so hot! We are such opposites. I'm complaining about the cold! and wind! and snow! And winter!
