The Winter Blues Blog Hop



Welcome to the Winter Blues Blog Hop. I am here on a special mission.  I am here to warm you up. How you ask? It may be cold wet, windy and maybe some snow hanging around your places. But here where I am in South Australia it is the middle of Summer. There is plenty of sunshine, blue skies and heat here for me to brighten your day. Today's temperature is 39 degree (102 fahrenheit) where I am.

Here is the schedule for the blog hop so pop over and check out everyone's posts. A big thank you to Carla from Creatin' in the Sticks for hosting us.

Monday, January 20th

Cynthia's Creating Ark you are here.

Friday, January 24th
Now blue is my favourite colour and what a great way to finish 2019 and start 2020 with a blue project. I had one in mind and those who follow my blog will recognize little glimpses as I worked on it.
It is a Quiltworx pattern called Prismatic Star. A pattern I have had my eyes on for a while.

Look at all those lovely blues
A little test on my blue floor. Yes it is blue. Just to double check the background.


Now a quarter joined together. I had to lay it out on a different floor so you can see it better. I stock this pattern and run regular Quiltworx workshop in my store.
Here is my blue star at quilt top stage. I look forward to seeing this one finished.
Until Next Time
Keep Stitching
Cynthia

Hi Cynthia! This is an absolutely stunning piece. The colors you chose to work with throughout are just gorgeous. Nice deep and rich tones and the dark background really let the blues and white shine. A wonderful star quilt! ~smile~ Roseanne
