starlight express quilt

I have been working on this fior a while now, its the first quilt i have attempted with points, most have come out ok, some are a little off  but its not too bad. The centre sashing is being difficult though,  i have had to unpick it numerous times to try to get it right, you cant see this yet as its still not right *sigh* but it will be !


 Linda from Natural Surburbia, is  hosting, thank you Linda,  i love to check out everyones amazing talent, and not to mention inspiration, so go check it out guys, and join us its fun!

The water is receding, its left a real mess, our little flat has been spared the brunt, just minor  stuff, compared to others. Praying the cyclone stays off the coast., and if you can, donate to help Qld recover.
I have posted a link for donations on the side bar, here is some images,  qld floods  check it out.

Hi Mrs A saw your post on Bonnie's site - please let me know if there is anything we can do to help you or your neighbours clean up. The guys in our office have a couple of generators and gurneys and stuff we are heading out Monday to help somewhere (not sure where) so if you know of anyone who needs our assistance please let us know.

Your quilt is amazing!! It is going to look fabulous when you have it all put together :)

So sorry to hear that you were affected by the flooding. We are in a flood plain and our basement is submerged quite regularly so my whole heart goes out to you and all the others that have been hit hard by the flood waters :(
Hugs.

It's a beautiful quilt! (If you get tired of picking out stitches, maybe you could fudge a little and switch the bottom left and top right blocks, so the naughty patch that refuses to line up is on the outside and might not be so noticeable...you can see I'm not a perfectionist! lol)

Thank you so much everyone, our place is fine, only garages full of water, so we are lucky compared to others, esp being so close to the river. The offending sashing has been ordered into place!
