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 .....

Sounds like you have lots to do today so I won't keep you. Charming Stars does look very charming and I can't believe that you have finished the top already. That Trip Around the World still calls to me.

You are definitely succeeding in getting some quilts done. Love 3 Sisters fabric, one of my favourite fabric designers. I need to get back to my charming stars too. Hugs......

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.
Have fun quilting your Trip Around The World.
I do enjoy the scrappy look of quilts and of course they use up so many scraps!!

Beautiful! I actually have a Trip Around the World that I'm (still) working on using Papillon (LOVE that fabric range). I had to visit Terry's blog and will probably sign up for Snowballs!

Great finishes (love scrappy stars especially) and lots of fun coming up with quilt alongs. I seriously need to downsize my scrap collection too so think I will join you in the snowball and nine back quilt along, thanks for the link.

Love your Stars quilt. Blocks look great too. I'm thinking of joining Terry for the snowball quilt. See how i go i need to catch up quite a few things & get some swaps out. Hugs,xx

Maria said...

Your Stars are looking great and I will join Terry with the ninepatch/snowball flimsy but will be making mine scrappy.
Have done a Scrappy Round the World too . Always a fabulous way to use up scraps.
