Scinteallate #5: half a dozen

It was a great day for squishes!

The postie brought not one, but two lovely packages. The first was from Sue, with four gorgeous blocks:

And the second was from Gun, with two, including one stunning appliqué block:

And finally, I’ve bought the fabric for the back and joining strips:

I couldn’t resist the tiny stars on the cream background, and that marbled teal has tiny sparkles over-printed on it.

Scinteallate is really starting to scintillate!

  1. All the blocks from Sue and Gun are just gorgeous!!!!!!

  2. I love Sue’s blocks, especially the crazy patch centers. My favorites. The backing fabric will be wonderful and I love the sparkles in the teal! What fun you will have. 😉

      I’m finding it impossible to choose favourites, but I agree, the crazy centres are gorgeous. The sparkly teal shouted at me from the shelf, I had to have it! You’ll only see a half a inch strip between the blocks, so it won’t be too bling-y, but it was such fun finding a fabric that ‘scinteallated’ too!

      I love how there’s so much variety already. Once I have a few more, I’ll show them all together so people can see how amazing they look as a collection of stars.

    All beautiful and quite unusual blocks from Sue and Gun with a lovely selection of fabrics..
    I put my three in the post on Saturday.
    I think the cream starry fabric you’ve bought is the one I also found. for my backgrounds.Does it look almost the same on both sides?

    • katechiconi says:

      They are lovely, and their very difference will make this quilt very special. My cream starry print fabric is quite solid; the back is cream but the stars are barely visible as slightly lighter blobs, so it may not be the same stuff.

    More beautiful blocks, this is going to be a lovely quilt. Everyone has such pretty fabrics. I have finished the other block it will be in the mail tomorrow I hope.

    • katechiconi says:

      That’s great, Robin, it’s so kind of you to do another! The collection of 10 blocks so far is already looking great, so I think you’re right, it will be a very special quilt.

    These are really awesome, and I can’t say why exactly, but the fifth one is my particular favorite!

  11. mewithptsd says:

    Y’all are beyond wonderful, again! I could get lost in the colors and patterns, again! So grateful you share your art with us all, again! It’s an amazing way to start the day.

    • katechiconi says:

      I’m so glad you like them. I think we all enjoy seeing what’s made for the Ovarian Cancer fundraisers, and I’m glad we’ve put a 🙂 into your morning!

    So many great stars (my included 🙂 ). I´m glad it didn´t take months for you to receive them 🙂 Love the idea with crazy insides!

  16. Nanette says:

    Heavenly blocks all, including yours and Robyn’s posted previously……I’m playing catch-up with blog reading …they’re going to set the quilt a-gleam!

    • katechiconi says:

      They really do sparkle, don’t they. I’m looking forward to arranging things when more arrive so I can see what’s needed and where before I make any more.

    I’ve gone back and looked at all the stars, and it will be an amazing quilt! I hope it brings many dollars in to help in your local area.
