Star Centers - Quilt Along

As much as I love swimming with my kids, I have loved not having lessons this week - I have had much more time to sew! I think I finished my blocks in record time this week!

This week for Happy Quiltings Star Surround Quilt Along we were making our star centers. It was not too hard, but I did have to unpick a few times when I got turned around between getting the fabric from my ironing board to my sewing machine. Maybe it was because I was talking to my kids while doing this . . .

But here are my blocks.

I have 16 of them, but with the fabrics I chose there are only 4 different ones, so I just took a picture of one set of the 4.

And I think that this block is my favorite. That aqua and purple just look so good together!!
And here is a just because picture.
While I was sewing I turned around to get one of my pieces and my little boy had it on the floor studying it with his head lamp. When I asked him what he was doing he told me he was checking to see if it was perfect. He then handed it to me and told me 'It's perfect!' I think I will have him help me every time I sew!!

    1. Thanks BillieBee, he is always good for a laugh!

  2. The little guy with the headlamp is just too funny. Of course your blocks are perfect. Can't wait to see the quilt.

  3. Oh my goodness, isn't he the cutest thing ever. I love sewing with my kids in the room, especially when their little hands get into it, but yup, it causes unpicking sometimes :) Your blocks look stunning and your points are just perfect. Great job!!

    1. Melissa you are very nice, I have to say it has been a while since I have worked on a quilt and am happy that my measuring is coming out good, usually I have to make adjustments as I go to make it right! lol! And we also think that this boy is by far the cutest thing around!

  4. Oh my gosh, that is so cute!!
