Seeing Stars

A post from Kelli–

Realistically, the majority of my summer has been spent working on homework.  I ended up having to take some summer gen-ed classes.  They haven’t necessarily been hard, but because they are gen-ed classes, they seem to have a larger amount of “busy-work.”

Last week, I finally decided that I needed a bit of therapy, so I pulled out a project that I had started a while ago.

Stars 2 (219x400)
The quilt that I’m working on needs a total of 256 little star blocks that will end up finishing at 3″.  I’m pretty sure that I’ve been sewing on these little stars for months!  It’s definitely a quilt that mom designed and then let me figure out how to make it.  These stars have been quite an undertaking.

The good news is that I only have about 50 left to make.  Once I get them done, the blocks will go together super fast and I’ll have a new quilt top before I even know it.  I’m glad that I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel!

    Kelli, those stars are the exact same ones that Bonnie Hunt put together on QuiltCam last Tuesday night! August 25, 2015 – if you want to see how she puts them together pretty quickly. Good Luck! (Although I thought you were going to talk about seeing real stars out in the Iowa sky…)

    1.5″ finished flying geese and 3/4″ finished squares? Wowser! That is some little piecing. I like small fiddly piecing but I haven’t gone that small.

    Now I’m going to have to try this :-) Thanks Jo…..I think ?

    Thanks for sharing this Kelly. I can’t wait to see the quilt!
