Is it Christmas?

It feels like Christmas when I get packages in the mail!
No just my lucky day!  First my internet order of Aurfil thread arrived....anyone who knows me, knows I don't usually shop online, but this was too tempting for words.  Totally justifying, for my hand applique!
But best of all..
Ta da, my prize from Quilt Bee, 
a Lemoyne Star ruler!  
The ruler makes stars from 3 to 12 inches, all without Y seams,  so no excuse now, will have to start making some star blocks.
Thanks Marie at Quilt Bee Blog
Happy quilting Sue.

60 degree triangle blocks

 I dont really remember why I started this quilt. But I have alot of strings, especially in blue and green.Not so much in yellow and orange which is why they are combined.
   I also have a 60 degree ruler that was a gift from my mother and I have never used!  So I decided to string piece the strings and then cut out triangles.  Which all sat in a box for a long time since!
 I liked the idea of diamonds, but there is not enough in one colour way for a diamond. 
And of course when I went looking for more strings I got distracted!  Distracted by the colours of Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  
All good, better then the strings and blocks sitting idle in a box, I now have a clear idea of what I want to do with them!
Happy Quilting Sue
