Ok not really a party, but Pal and I had a lot of fun, sewing up our very first ever quilt block!

The Levitating Larks were a lot of fun to do, they're my faves so far.

The fabrics...


The center...


The back (I'm a garment sewer, I press seams open! get over it! )


The back of le Star...(saving my best for last, keeping you all in suspenders! )


And a far from perfect but hey it's my first ever ...le Star!

------
I heart Panzy, Pfaff Creative Performance, the sewing machine love of my life!
And Baby (Enlighten serger), Victor (BLCS), Rupert (Pfaff 2023-knits expert) Ash (B350SE-Artwork), Kee (B750QEE-Panzy's BFF), Georgie (B560-Kee's baby sister) and the Feather-Flock!

Most of all, I heart Woo (HimmyCat). Until we meet again, my beautiful little boy. I love you.

Sweet! Although I'm concerned that you will enjoy this so much that you will have no clothes to wear.

Looking good -- and it's blue (my fave colour).

You'd never know this is your first block -- you've been hooked!
