Stars of Solace from Sew Preeti Quilts


Audition Block

Ready to Piece

Just Playing with HSTs

Mom was exasperated.
Can I have just one room that is clean and uncluttered?  One room where I can seat a guest?
Is that too much to ask?


Design Wall

Two Rows = Half Done


Yay for the Flimsy!!!

Mom is an early riser and by early afternoon she needs a nap. If mom was taking a nap in the bedroom, we girls would take our toys in the drawing room and play as quietly as possible. And although we kept the noise level to a minimum the clutter and the mess ...

Another Star Kissed Quilt: 1-1/2″ Squares from Wedding Dress Blue

Here is a second finishing idea for Star Kissed blocks.  This little quilt is blocks that are based on 1-1/2″ squares, but I can easily see it in any block size and as a large bed quilt.

The sashing is the same width as the blocks and laid out in a scrappy-happy way.

The quilting is a panto called Cotton Candy.

The binding was a quandry; I almost went with white for the first time in my life, but found this polka dot in stash and it seemed to work.

How are your Star Kissed blocks coming?  I am ...

Morning Star Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

The Morning Star Quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co. Watch the free quilt tutorial today.

Have you ever given up on a quilting project? You’re not alone! Wavy blocks and unmatched seams have frustrated quilters since the invention of needle and thread!

The Morning Star Quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co. Watch the free quilt tutorial today.

As a result, unfinished quilts are commonly found in antique shops, and quite often, they are Morning Star quilts! This pretty star is certainly breathtaking, but all those Y-seams and tiny bias-cut diamonds have caused many a quilter to call it quits. 

Lucky for us, the magnificent Tara Faughnan designed a modern Morning Star for our MODBlock Magazine, and it’s the perfect blend of quick, easy, and exciting! Click HERE to ...

Started a new star quilt from Northern Deb Quilts


So I started another quilt. It was an accident... really...not planned at all.
Remember those vintage scraps and old blocks that I was organizing? I remade the friendship star blocks and put the 16 of them together as a future quilt center. Well, I was thinking about it at night and thought, "what if I cut up all the scraps that matched the stars and surrounded my center with a huge star.
This was about midnight...couldn't sleep. I pulled out my laptop with my EQuilter program and started playing with ideas.
Long story short... About 3am I ...

Blue and White Quilt Top from Northern Deb Quilts

Check off another quilt top! 
Im finally done with this blue and white quilt top after...oh...maybe 10 years? It's going onto a hanger with the rest of my unquilted tops, mainly because I haven't decided how to quilt it (hand, domestic or longarmer) and I haven't found the batting or backing. It's not a rush...I have PLENTY more UFOs to work on. 

This one started YEARS ago as a class sample. I was teaching from a book with lots of jelly roll quilts. I had a finished sampler quilt to show the class ...

Sea Glass Stars from Appalachian Quilts

I don't even have to tell you how it happened or why it happened.  Yeah, I still did the laundry.  I even did all my ironing.  I didn't want there to be any guilt involved if I sat down at the sewing machine.  And there wasn't.  I took the rest of the day for myself.  No bread was baked this weekend.  Hubs will have to do without.  Sunday was a 'me' day.  I finished it.


It all started with deciding to just make a couple more of the nine patch blocks.  The washer was still going, so ...

Blue and white star quilt from Northern Deb Quilts

I had a little sewing time this afternoon and was able to add 3 blocks to my #blueandwhitequilt

I changed the design just a bit. The outermost border was plain. I decided to add a bunch half square trianges (hst) and a few more of the stars going around the center. I really HOPE I have enough fabric to do all of this. It's going to be close.

 So besides sewing this weekend, we met a new family member. It's amazing what can be discovered through #Ancestry.
And now I'm relaxing a little before the big game ...
