HSTeria Quilt Along

Loving this Quilt Along, thanks to Vicki at Field Trips in Fiber for coming up with this great idea! Hop along to the link please after reading this post and see all the other HSTeria projects.

I'm busy pulling out more fabrics in different colours and generally making a real mess on my cutting table - and over  other surfaces as well! Because of the colouring of this quilt it's a matter of careful placement so that's taking more time than the cutting and sewing at the moment. Using the colours I showed last week I have begun on Ocean Waves and making it with the memories in mind of my 1962/63 sail to NZ through Suez and the return to UK through Panama - I will never forget the beauty of the ocean and the sky, incredible.

All At Sea

I've just been along to the store to buy more of these white plastic trays, great for keeping pieces nice and tidy after cutting and waiting to be sewn.

That's all from me at the moment on HSTeria, gotta get busy on green cats!! Watch for another post on Sunday. Don't forget to visit the HSTeria link-up

Before I go we have been watching and reading about storms, flooding and tornadoes in the States, it looks horrific, know that other folks in other countries are keeping you in their thoughts.

Sunset one evening last week, just look at that sky!!!!!

You picked fabulous batik colors - they somehow fit your beautiful sky picture! Have fun with the HSTeria QA!

You've got a good theme going with the colour in your pictures today. And I love a good HST quilt, I'm thinking I might have to do another one soonish.

Great colors! (DH was near the tornado in Tupelo, MS - but he is home safely after several extra hours of travel time).

Your ocean waves quilt colors are amazing. But no wonder given your inspirations. If any of your green cats show up over here I hope they bring along parts of the ocean waves quilt.
