Stars on Parade



Once again, I am participating in Cecile’s (Patchwork Inspirations) annual sew-a-long. This year the theme is stars. Who doesn’t like stars?? I love Cecile’s sew-a-longs as the rules are simple and she is always so sweet! We have to make at least 16 blocks and complete the quilt by May 31.

These little guys finish at 3” square. I am using my favorite Pennsylvania colors. My self imposed rule is that I must use fabrics from my scrap bins. No running to the stacks! I think I would have to make 1,000 blocks to make a dent!

There is still time to join in. The cutoff date is January 15. Visit Cecile’s blog (here) or the Facebook page (here)

  2. Very nice little twinklers, Wendy. I enjoy challenging myself like you have done. It is fun to see how it makes you think outside your usual preferences.
    I just made a 1" star to go in the center of an uneven 9-patch block for my Circa 1880 quilt. Maybe I should join in and make 16 more...not. :)

  4. That is a beautiful challenge, and some gorgeous fabrics. Do you plan to make more than the 16 required blocks or keep it mini-sized?

  5. Lovely blocks and 3" is wonderful, unfortunately I don't speak or read French but think the plan is make at least 16 blocks in January and February, make top in March and quilt it in April and May. I mY just have to join you just have to decide what star, what size and how many! Love star blocks.
