Scrappy Star and Fabulous Gladi Porche presentation

 I know this will come as no surprise, but I have decided to finish the Scrappy Star Sew Along with Taryn Falkner (Reproquiltlover) in the potholder method. 😏

Here are the first 3 blocks quilted and bound. I decided on this peachy print for the alternate blocks as I have very few solids in my collection and it seemed the next best thing. 

The backs are cut from my extensive collection of chintzes. 

Last weekend I had the great pleasure of seeing my friend Gladi (Gladi'sQuilts) at our state meeting in Augusta, Maine. I had seen many of Gladi's quilts over the years, but I was still blown away by her collection and her pleasing way of describing her process and her passion. She is truly remarkable! Thanks Gladi!!



  1. Lucky you getting to see Gladi's quilts up close and personal! She really does a wonderful job--so creative and interesting! And your star blocks are coming along very well. The potholder method is very you.:)

  2. I have tried a couple of times to comment and they keep disappearing. If they are showing up on your end of things, you can choose which you want to post.
    I am so excited about your unexpected color for bindings and alternate squares. And those backings are luscious!
    I'll bet Gladi's trunk show was incredible. Wish I could have been a fly on the wall to observe it all!

  3. Your potholder blocks are always an inspiration!

  4. What a treat to see and hear about Gladi's quilts!
