Starfire and NTT

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday!  There has been LOTS going on around here lately, and not all of it is quilting related- my wild thing started middle school on Monday, and I cannot believe it.  There is no doubt about it; in parenthood, sometimes the days are long, but the years fly by in the blink of an eye!

On the quilting front, I have been working like mad and actually have a couple of finishes to share today.  The first is a brand new quilt top in a fiery color palette.  I've always wanted to make a quilt in these colors, and I can't believe it took this long.  I really love it!


The way the reds and oranges twist around the stars is lots of fun, and in my mind, I can already see this pattern in several great color ways.  I'm calling this one Starfire, and I plan to release the pattern for it as soon as I can find the time!

I did finish up one pattern this week though.  I'm happy to let you know that Lavalier is now available in my Craftsy and Etsy shops.  If you're looking for a pattern to show off some bold prints with an Art Deco flair, check it out!


I hope you've all had a fun and productive week of creativity as well.  Before we link up though, check out some of my faves from last week's party.  This modern beauty is from Deb at New Creative State


Chelsea at Patch the Giraffe showed off her awesome Starlight quilt.


and this quilt by Dawn at First Light Designs is so soothing in all of those shades of blue!


Time to show what you've got!  Let's party, y'all!

1.  You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!
2. Link to your specific post (not to your home page!) to make it easier for others.
3. Please remember to spread the word and post my button or a text link.  
4. Spread the comment love far and wide!
5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)

  5. It's funny, when I first saw Starfire show up in my bloglovin' feed I immediately thought "wow, that color scheme is really outside Kelly's usual color palettes!" It looks great!

  6. Hi Kelly! Lavalier is just gorgeus! I love the shapes on this patterns and also the colours are so stylish! But you can guess that the Starfire is also my favourite; really great colours and stars are always stars! Thank you for the party! x Teje

  14. Ever since I worked for a school district that had orange as one of its school colors, I've had a "thing" for orange, and this quilt is why. Isn't that just the happiest color??!
