Finished Star Light Star Bright Quilt

 I consider the finishing of this quilt a major feat! March has not been my families month as we moved from one sickness to another, it was rough. And I did not get much sewing in. But This last week we finally took a turn for the better and I was able to get in and finish this quilt top!
 And I just love how it looks, so bright and fun! And it has a more boy friendly feel than most of my quilts! It is huge, I had a hard time taking a picture of it that really does it justice!
But this might be my last project for a while as we are up to move again this summer! I could not be happier! North Dakota is cold, cold and cold. And today we have a snow day because of a blizzard. But our next assignment is California! yippee!! So I am cleaning stuff out and trying to get organized as this all goes down in just about 2 months!

Star Light, Star Bright QAL corner pieces

This past weekend the stomach flu was at our house and now it is my turn with it. So all you get today is a picture of my corner pieces for the quilt along. Not much description, because I want to go take a nap. But I wanted to get my picture linked up!
I have not been sewing much, just helping kids out - let's hope they do the same for me when they get home from school!!

Aurifil March Block

I really am liking this block a month thing. I have plenty of time to get them done - even though I usually finish my block within the first week. Here is my block for March:
I had originally used a skinny red strip, where the light blue one is, but it just blended right into my outside border. So I unpicked it switched it out for a blue one. And I love the result.

I tried to take a picture of all my blocks together, but we rarely see the sun these past few days and so this was the best I could get.
And I think my kids have used my camera a little too much, there is stuff in my pictures that is an indication of a dirty lens.
We got another couple of inches of snow yesterday and today there was no school, so we are having a lazy day and an early start to our relaxing weekend!

Star Light Star Bright QAL update

Here are my end pieces for Happy Quilting's QAL. This was a pretty easy week. I kind of enjoyed it! I have about a billion other projects to work on - don't we all?!
And this kind of reminds me of a chevron dress! I am excited to see how it all comes together! Soon it will be done!!

Star Light Star Bright Centers

After taking almost all week to finish last weeks assignment I was on top of things this week, and I am done with the one for this week. Maybe it was because this was a lot easier than the hst's! But I am glad it is done, because I have another curtain order to sew and a few more alterations. What I really could use is a couple more hours in the day and a couple more for sleep! Couldn't we all?!

But here are my star centers in all their glory!!
And then here are a couple of my favorite ones:
This one I love how the reddish orange looks next to the floral.
And lastly this one. I really love this light orange one - there is just something about it.
Anyway, it is finally Friday and I am so happy about it! I get to spend some relaxing time with my family and have no obligations! My favorite way to spend the weekend! Hope you all have a great weekend too!!

Star Light Star Bright HST's

 I did it! And I could not be happier! For the quilt a long this week we were sewing and trimming our HST's. It was a little confusing at first, as I tried to figure out how I needed to get these into piles, but I figured it out and then got to sewing.

And here are all the HST's for each of my nine squares:
And of course the trimmings. Holy cow this took F.O.R.E.V.E.R.  But I love how great the quilt comes together when everything is the same size!! So I endured and finished!
Looking at of this makes me think of the Denver Broncos . . .

Sugar Snow Quilt

One of the books that I got for Christmas was the Vintage Quilt Revival. It is a fabulous book, and the first pattern that really stood out to me was the Sugar Snow quilt. So I rummaged through my fabric and found almost enough to make it. I was a little bit short of background fabric, so it sat like this in my sewing room for a while.
But once I got more ordered it was super fast to finish this quilt up.
I tried to take pictures of this the same day as my kaleidoscope quilt and the wind was not very cooperative. But I got a few good ones!
I really love this one, and I love the 'orchid' color with the turquoise. When I finally get my longarm, I will have lots of room to practice with all of the open space that this has.
And just because sometimes my points are right on I have this picture for you. Notice my center points?! Aren't they just lovely?!
I really love this quilt, I am not sure if I will be able to wait for my long arm to have it completely done! I want to use it now!!
