Star Surround Quilt-A-Long
Wow, didn’t this go by quick? Feels like I just started this quilt!
I have to say there was just so much excitement with this project for me. I love the block and really liked the goal oriented tasks each week. It also didn’t hurt that there was a chance at winning a prize each week either!
The last task is to get the blocks and top assembled and link up with Melissa@HappyQuilting. Melissa has been a fabulous host and has had great tutorials to go along with each step.Thanks a bunch Melissa for all your kind words and encouragement along the way:)
There will be four Grand Prize Winners for some 75.00 gift certificates to either Intrepid Thread or Fat Quarter Shop. I hope I haven’t used up all my winning mojo, because I would love to have a little spending spree:)
What would I do differently???
Well, I like my fabrics okay, but would rather have used something a little more bright and fun. My goal was to use some things I have from my stash(that is overflowing). This was a yellow bundle I bought at a quilt show several years ago. I wasn’t as picky then about fabrics and some of these are sooooo thin(poor quality), but oh well. Still a nice palette and a sweet traditional feel. Since it is a baby quilt I think it will suit nicely.
Secondly, nothing! I really loved the pattern and think I might just make another with a bright yellow/gray palette in the one large block design:)
Wish me luck!
Keep it Sassy♥
