Posting, Posting...Does Anybody Care?!!!

I think bloggers who don't post for ages are lame, and I plead guilty as charged.  It's been ages since I posted anything.  But!  Tonight's the night...

I've started a new quilt for little Rory, who lives in London and is about 1 year old.  Every little boy loves dinosaurs, right?  And when I found this amazing fabric at eQuilter, I decided it was just the thing for Rory's quilt.

So, I made a start, and here are the first two blocks:

And I got inspired, and made all the star points, put together the first 12 blocks, and have the remaining 8 laid out, ready to sew together:

And just to give you another little taste, here is a close-up of 6 of the blocks -- can you tell I LOVE these?


Still working out the setting, but I'm thinking a simple horizontal setting, with 2" sashing, maybe in a wild print, with a contrasting color for settings squares.  And then either a triple border using some of the star point fabric, or maybe I'll find another print I like.

So that's the news from me.  Is this the start of blogging for me again?  Not promising anything...
