OK so I joined the Star Light Star Bright QAL hosted by Melissa back in January (I didn't find this till February so I tried to play catch up), well it ended in April. I am still working on finishing this up. Yeah I know it's June now.

I started out pretty well, got all my pieces cut and even laid out a possible block option.
 So at this point I started making my HST's and Geese and thought this is going to be a breeze! Then it hit me, I was going to have to lay out each block one at a time, UGH! I realized I needed to know which fabrics to pair of for the HST's and needed to make sure that my directional prints were facing the right way. So I carefully laid out two blocks and completed them.

 I am happy with the way they both turned out, but let me tell you the stripe on the second block definitely gave me a few more grey hairs! I pinned, moved, rotated, and took pictures till I thought I had it just right and still had two spots I messed up. I'm not telling where they are!! I decided it just added charm to the block, at least that's what I'm going to tell myself! After this I decided to quit for the day, and I just never went back.

So after a long break I finally made some centers for some of the other blocks for the quilt.

Oh buggers there is that stripe again! I managed to at least get it going in the right direction this time!

4 down and 3 more to go. Then it will be time to make up and add the corners and sides.  Wish me luck!!
I would love to see what you have been working on this week!

  1. This is a beautiful design and it looks very effective in your fabric choices.

  2. Such pretty blocks, Belinda! Love your fabric choices. All your blocks turned out perfectly pieced. No one is going to notice the stripes, but you. Great progress and well done!

  3. I missed on this QAl as too many WIPS but did the previous as a 40" baby quilt. It was kind of cheating as only needed 1 block! This is coming together for you nicely - wouldn't have paid attention to the stripes only you mentioned it!

  4. beautiful blocks, and beautiful fabric choices!

    Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
