Just like chips..... can't eat just one;

and the same goes for the "Just One Star" challenge

I couldn't just make one, so I made two.   I am sure most of you have heard about the challenge by Moda to make just one star.  If not, you can read about it here.

I would, also, like to share with you the beautiful fabric that I found this weekend to back my daughter's wedding quilt. 

It is Wild Rose by Blackbird Designs (Moda) and I really love it.  I think it will really compliment the brown and pink triple Irish chain.  Can't wait to get this one quilted. 

Well, enjoy the last few hours of your weekend.  I know I have enjoyed the few hours I have gotten to spend in my sewing room NOT working on the wedding quilt. 


  1. That fabric is gorgeous. Really perfect for the backing. Good job!

  2. I agree - the star blocks go together so well...I just had to make 2 also...I think alot of us did! Maybe Moda will have twice as many quilts as they had asked for!

    Love the backing you found - Blackbird Designs sure knows how to come up with pretty fabrics.
    Congratulations on having that wedding quilt under control - it turned out beautifully.

  3. I like your backing fabric for the Wedding Quilt, it's very pretty and will be perfect

  4. Love your Just One Star blocks Faye! picked such a beautiful fabric to back that wedding quilt!

    Enjoy some non-wedding quilting this week!

  5. That is a perfect backing for the wedding quilt, I love it when that happens. I haven't heard about the star blocks, I'll go look.

Checkerboard quilt

One more day before the end of the year and I was hoping to get just one more quilt finished for 2017.

I got this pattern from a blog called The Painted Quilt .  If you go to her blog and  under the free patterns go to "Stopped Me In My Tracks" quilt,  you can have the pattern, too.  
I did get this one quilted today using the Easy Peasy Baptist Fan pantograph.

Personally, I wish I owned the Circle Lord  mechanism that I could attach to my Millenium that would have given me "perfect" arcs, but once I finished the whole quilt, I am pretty pleased with the end results.  
I had purchased a big gingham check in yellow and white for the backing.

It's not a perfect match to the front which is done in Kona daffodil and a creamy white, but the whole quilt speaks Spring/Summer, warmth, brightness to me; and here in Michigan with our sub zero weather right now, that sounds really good to me.  
Anyways, I am hoping to get the binding attached tomorrow (New Year's Eve…

Disappearing Hourglass

This quilt came about when I was going through my stash (trying to destash, actually) and I came across a layer cake.  I did some research on-line looking for something to make with a layer cake.
I have discussed the whole process of making the disappearing hourglass here.
A couple fabrics were added to get enough blocks to get my 6 x 7 blocks and then I ordered another April Cornell fabric for the main border.
I added a small white border to finish off the outside of the blocks.

Then the deep periwinkle fabric was used for the outer border and one of the blocks, too. 

The top is complete.

A green dot fabric was purchased for the backing.

I put it on the longarm and I used another new-to-me panto called Venice.

It looks great on the fabric, too.  

Binding is the same as the final border.
The quilt is complete, binding and all.

Another finish.....yeah!!!

First project for 2018 is complete.....

Since I am sitting here recovering from surgery, I made sure I had some hand projects to keep me busy for a week or so.
The first one completed is my yellow checkerboard quilt. The binding was machine stitched on the day before surgery with the idea that I would hand stitch it down after.  
So, here is #1 for 2018.

Not much yellow thread to spare, but sure glad I had yellow at all.  
There are a couple knit projects to work on; and if I feel like sitting in front of the sewing machine, I have some blocks that need to be put into a top, but we will see.
For now, I am healing and just glad there are things to keep me occupied if the need arises. 

Happy Quilting!
