...about a Quilt-a-long! After first seeing the posts for the Starburst Quilt-A-Long by Melissa at Happy Quilting...I really wanted to...but told myself to wait and see...wait and see if in the midst of this crazy work schedule I'm on that I would have time to play along! So I got up Friday after the best sleep I've had all week...and went...hmmmm...why not!
Thankfully I have LOTS of FQs in my stash. After taking a look at all of them, I decided to go with Prairie Paisley 2 by Minick and Simpson and make myself a Red, White and Blue quilt!!! (I'm very excited to see how this one comes out!).
I laid all 12 FQs out to decide what would make up what part of my stars:
Then I got to cutting (making the 32" blocks), and here it all is:
and a closer look at the fabric for the stars:
I have not cut out the sashing strips yet, I want to see how the blocks look and perhaps go a little scrappy with the sashing.
Since I have tomorrow off from work (woohoo!), I'm hoping to be able to start on the next part of the QAL as soon as it's posted!
