When You Wish Upon a Star…

I promise you that you will have that song in your head and/or on your lips for the rest of the day!  You’re welcome :-).

There are SO many star quilt blocks that I’d just show you a few to help you with the hitch in your getalong.  Again, you’re welcome :-).

I have a friend who always makes her scraps into HST’s or fabric squares.  She has bags of HST’s as well as 2″ squares.  She uses these as either fillers for the quilts she makes or to just make a quilt out of them, once she has enough.  A lot of times, she uses the HST’s to make stars for her quilts.  I admire that.  I really do!  Her awesomeness in that area of her quilt life is lost on me.  I either stuff the unused fabric into a basket on a shelf and occasionally pull it out and use whatever I need.  When I finish a quilt, I don’t want to even think about making HST’s or 2″ fabric squares – I want the quilt done and nothing more!

What do YOU do with your leftover fabric from a quilt project?

    A Quilting We Will Go!

    I have an amazing longarm quilter, Meloney Funk, who is a friend in every sense of the word.  She takes my quilts and quilts her magic.  Her quilting enhances every single quilt top I send to her.  I just received a baby quilt from her this past week and had to blog about it – HAD to!

    Here is the quilting from the back of the quilt:

    And here is what she quilted on the front:

    Maybe when I grow up, I can learn to quilt like Meloney!

        Flashback Tuesday: Santorini Stars

        This was one of my favorite block of the month (BOM) quilts to make for BOMquilts.com in 2010 – Santorini Stars:

        This was a raw edge applique using pinking shears and a pinking blade on a rotary cutter.  Really fun to make and the special young lady I gifted it to absolutely loved it!
