Just had to add this post from a friend, Lynda Smyth! She recently finished piecing Lydia's Pattern Stardust Serenade! What a lovely quilt! Find Molly in the photo...Lynda said "Molly was found in a garbage bin outside of Shopper's Drug Mart on Dec. 30, 2010...weighed 3 lbs, her tail was like a pencil. I think she landed in a bed of roses.....and does she ever love quilting! " Don't you just love quilter's who rescue animals!!!
Stardust Serenade is a real scrappy quilt...Lynda always does her own thing on every pattern, as she is a very accomplished quilter and teacher. She added..." note that I did not machine piece the center or the outside of each block. The center 4 pieces form a circle, so I made it a circle and appliqued it to the arcs, the outside 4 pieces when joined form a circle, so I turned under the seam allowance and reverse machine appliqued it to each block. Was marvellous and saved a lot of piecing...went like a charm!"
