BR 5 Gay's Glory and K-13 Brandon's Star

I paper pieced this TOW. It was futtery but it went together not too badly. Not sure what the fabric is but I liked it. It's a small fat eighth I found in my stash. It's by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda but not sure of the range.
There's still a little paper in the back around the edges that I've left in for the moment.

Here is the BOW. I've had a fat quarter of this fabric for ages in my stash. I think it may be Marcus Brothers but no idea what collection it's from, I think it may well be reproduction of some sort.
I need to unpick the outer borders and resew with a slightly bigger seam allowance as I can't trim to 5" with out loosing some points. So I need to take it in a bitty. I had some silly mishaps with this, otherwise easy block (possibly due to being well past my bedtime). I machine pieced in the regular manner.
Off to bed now as it's way past my bedtime. Tomorrow I hope to work some more on some siggies to send out. I have a load stitched, just need to decorate and post out :-D. May post one or two on here. For now Good night and God bless..


  1. Elly, they both look wonderful! Brandon's Star is one of my favorite DJ blocks.
