Star Kissed 1-1/4″ Finished from Wedding Dress Blue

The first quilt top created was the last one finished. That happens sometimes. But I am pleased with the outcome and look forward to sharing a round up of all of them (four sizes).

If you have a Star Kissed top/quilt you would like included, let me know. I would love to see how you finished yours.

The pieces in this one are SO TINY! It makes my heart happy.

For now it is staying here with the other three. I have some notion about doing a presentation of some kind on scale and setting options in quilts…I ...

Stars Over Scott Quilt from Baby Boomer Quilting Bee

 



Quiet often, I find myself making another Stars Over Scott.  They are quick, large and great for masculine gifts. It is also one of my favorites and named for my son Scott.  The above quilt finishes at 86" X 98".


For this version, I used 6" (finished) HSTs -- it is the only block you need -- 164 of them.  The free pattern is linked here ... Stars Over Scott.


The recipient of this quilt will always be known for wearing plaid shirts.  I knew I had to find something plaid for backing.  I have to give credit to Andrea with Quiltingfor4, a ...

Star Sashed Nine-Patch Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Star Sashed Nine-Patch Quilt by the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

The 4th of July is getting close. Let’s celebrate with stars!

The original American flag had just 13 stars—one for each state, and we’ve added a star with every new state. 

Imagine those poor flag makers. Just as they mastered one design, they’d get the news: “Hold up, everyone! Kentucky is now a state! Start unpicking, and rearrange your stars!” 

(Sometimes the layout was changed every single year. That’s a lot of star shuffling!)

pattern by Tony Jacobson
Quilted by my friend Steph Jacobson

I really wanted to give a quilt to a 'Hometown Hero' as part of Sarah's quilt drive for Hands to Help 2021 (@ confessions of a fabric addict) I made a baby quilt for Little Lambs which you can see HERE. My mission now was to figure out how to find a hero for this quilt. 
Before Covid in my lqg I was assigned a quilt partner, sort of a mentor/mentee kind of thing. I knew my partner worked at a local hospital and so I ...

Star Kissed 2″ Complete from Wedding Dress Blue

Star Kissed 2″ quilt is complete!

I love everything about it: It is large (about 80″ square). The colors are just right. The muslin background gives a different look than the bright white I often use. The quilting is customized to the quilt and adds a dimension all its own.

Yep, it makes me happy.

Soon the 1-1/4″ version will be complete and I will have the entire happy family together to admire. What fun that will be!

AccuquiltGo Sawtooth Star: Get Mileage Out of the Dies You Own from Mulberry Patch Quilts

You’ll see in my recent posts that I’m obsessed with learning how much mileage I can get with my Accuquilt GO!Cutter and the dies I already own.

I love the simplicity of the Sawtooth Star block and so I decided to see if I could design some pieced items with it using the dies I have.

Although I don’t own the 8” Go!Cube, I have almost all the shapes (see those in bold print on the list below). The only one shape I was missing was for the “flying geese” part of the star: the ...

Island Batik - April Challenge from Sew Preeti Quilts

Me: How is it?
Paul (mildly irritated): What?
Me (irritated): Your breakfast...that I just brought you, my lord.
Paul: I am still alive, am I not?
Me (through gritted teeth): In that case, let me get you another serving.
Paul (calmly): It is good to have goals.
Me: If you want me to cook for you then you need to tell me that you LIKE my cooking.
Paul: I will...AFTER I finish eating it.


Let's ignore Paul for now.

Is that too much to ask?

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 ...
