Starstruck with "Island Batik" from MooseStash Quilting

It's in the "Stars" this month with the Island Batik ambassadors.
Our challenge...star quilts.

I've incorporated the "Friendship Star" into my project.
With fall upon us...I just couldn't help,
 but think about the gorgeous colors that come with the season.
This 35"x 35" bundle of joy is done with  
these "Pumpkin Patch" strips.
I like to keep it real, on my blog.

I wrote about my McCarthy Sewing Studio several summers ago, and I think it is time for revisit.  Earlier this summer, I posted a photo of the doors to my McCarthy studio on Instagram and tooheycohen commented, “You making a She Shed?”

I Spy Alaska from Lost Quilt Come Home Page

Nadja Bode is searching for a quilt she made called I Spy Alaska. The quilt was last seen in November 2017. It was accidentally given to a thrift store in either Raymond, South Bend, Hoquim, or Aberdeen; all cities in Washington.

Nadja used an I Spy quilt pattern by Lisa Moore. It may or may not be labeled. If it is, it would have been written with a Micron pen on the back, and ...

Silly Suits from Lost Quilt Come Home Page

Sandra Benzel would like to recover a quilt she made for Jim Morgan called Silly Suits. This quilt was last seen sometime around February 2017 in a truck in northern Washington. The truck was stolen and the quilt was in the back.

There is a label that says “Silly Suits for Jim Morgan by Sandra Benzel, Tingit Indian” along with her native name and Juneau, Alaska. The label is sewn to the back ...
