so Scrappy SATURDAY, I have been here

My Saturday last week was spent sewing these wonky star blocks. I didn't get them done in time for the link up but will catch up now. I have been so busy since Christmas and trying to catch up with life, swaps and my own sewing. I think I might nearly be there.
This year I have to learn  to say NO and not to over commit.... So here goes....
What I did during the week.
I continued on my WONKY STAR BLOCKS.
Here I am working on my block
 Here is my BLUE one for the month of January. I am linking up with So Scrappy.

I continued on with a yellow block and a red block. This gives me enough blocks to finish the quilt. I wanted to show these seperate blocks even though I have already shown the finished quilt the other day.





I have been making these blocks/quilts throughout 2014 and now continuing into 2015. I made 4 quilts for my sons closest girlfriends for their 21sts. It has been very hard but needs to be done. Everyone has to move on.
The labels on each qullt were personalised and are very touching. A few tears were shed when written and again when read. Memories will live on.

It was with Angela's help and motivation that I managed to get all these blocks and quilts done. Thanks Angela for all your motivation..
