Is it going to work for me this time?

I have been following the Just Take 2 BOM, and working along trying really hard to keep up, Last week I dedicated a few days to finish the first quarter. This is what I have ended up with.
Now if you are also making this you will see that there are a couple of blocks in here that should not be, that is because I became frustrated with what I had made and decided that it was just not good enough and so I made my own. It is the hand piecing that is not working for me.

Anyway........ I am happy with what I have made, the feathered star especially and the applique one in the bottom right hand corner (which by the way I did with vliesofix and blanket stitch on the machine)

This one is certainly testing my staying power, and since I have finished this quarter there has been new blocks put up, which I cant start because my printer is out of ink. This is a very good excuse and I am sticking to it.

I have been really slack with posting what I have been doing

But I have not been idle.
During the first few weeks of this year I became a pattern tester for Arbee Desighs Ltd.  Check them out  here.

This one is called Star Crossed, it is foundation Pieced, But once I got the hang of it, it progressed easily.

And this one is called "Star Medallion" .

The original pattern was made with Floral Fabric, but I was anxious to get started and I did not have enough floral to get the repeats so used the fishy one instead.

Unfortunately neither of them is quilted yet
