WIPs and finishes!

I've been busy working on my projects before going on my trip next month, so I have some pix to show.

At last the fundraiser quilt for my DD's school is finished. It's on display so the kids can enjoy their artwork, then it's going to be auctioned. Fingers crossed that it was worth the work. It took about 2 weeks to make.

My niece has just had a baby girl, so I decided to make a diaper bag. I got the pattern from here.
Here it is:

and here is a pic of the inside of the bag. Lots of pockets!

That's a centre divider that you can see down the middle.
I hope it will be useful.

I finished the March blocks for the Sew Bee Create group.

It's a 25 patch , all in shades of blue, and will make a very pretty postage stamp quilt. My pic doesn't do them justice.

and lastly I'm assembling all my stars from the Oh My Stars quiltalong.

This is it so far:

There's a lot more to put together, and now I've decided to make the quilt larger, so lots more stars to make too.
I'm happy with how it looks so far!

Linking as always to
