I finished up the first of the Focus Through the Prism challenges today.  The block to incorporate this month was the Friendship Star.

My version of the quilt, “Jefferson Starship,” features a patchwork design, with multiple friendship stars in different sizes, and a hand embroidered alien.  The fabrics used in this quilt are Cherrywood Fabric in Violet from the ROYGBIV set for the Focus Though the Prism challenges, Washi Tape fabric by Rashida Cole Hale, Tula Pink Foxfield fabric for FreeSpirit, and miscellaneous stash fabrics in purples.

The alien embroidery inside the large friendship star is the hand embroidery version of Abducted by Urban Threads.

    Purple is my favourite colour so you know I think it’s gorgeous! Your little alien guy is pretty cute, and I love the detail of the buttons.

    We’re in the middle of a heat wave (46ºC) so I’ve been sitting cutting out fabric hearts with pinking shears. Will sew them together on the right side (hence the shears) and stuff them as favours for the coffee mornings. The ladies can use them as pincushions, or just ornaments. I’ve never used pinking shears before–who knew they were so heavy?

      That is way too hot! Stay inside where it’s cool. I’m glad that you like this little quilt. I had fun making it. I can’t wait to see what the new challenge is. It will be listed on the 1st.

    What a wonderful quilt! I love what you’ve done here and the alien embroidery is the perfect addition!

      Thanks so much Kim! This one was a lot of fun. I hope I can come up with something just as creative for the next challenge.
