Charming Stars....

Last year I joined in with Terry's Charming Stars Sew-A-Long

now all my stars are joined together and borders added

It's very soft and pretty ... I used a range called "Papillon"
and the pattern is from Moda HERE

I think it will be fun to quilt too.... 

Thanks Terry..... I started Scrappy Stars the year before and those blocks are still being made (though mine are squares instead of Stars)...
I wanted to do some mindless piecing the other day so I made 11 more of these... I think I have all 81 that I wanted now

 and this year Terry is going to do a lovely nine patch/snowball one with scraps .... tempting????  My scrappy quilts are always very scrappy ....

Thanks Terry..... I love your sewalongs, scrappy makes and low stress

Righto, Gotto Go.... I have pinned a scrappy quilt which has been waiting a couple of years and want to get it quilted (Bonnie's Trip Around the World)

I always start the year trying to get some UFO's done...

Righto, Gotto Go.... quilt, quilt, quilt.... after coffee .....


  1. Looks like you have made a good start to your quilting year!

  2. Oh I like your scrappy squares! How do they look laid out together? I might have to start on one of those soon! :0) I'm so glad you've enjoyed the sew-alongs...I love seeing all the quilts made by everyone!

  9. Love the way the stars have come together. Great result. And I also like the scrappy stars/squares. 81 blocks sounds like a good sized quilt.

  15. Love your version of scrappy stars Fiona. I have a soft spot for scrap quilts I must admit
