Star Surround Update


In an effort to lighten my fabric stash, I’ve taken a part in the Star Surround Quilt-Along hosted by Melissa of Happy Quilting.

This week’s task was flying geese…. a LOT of flying geese.  I have sixteen (16) colors and twelve (12) geese per color.  That would be 192 geese, thank you very much!

Done!  8:30 Sunday night, but done all the same.

At this pace, Melissa is going to have us finish this baby in record time.




Star Surround Quilt Along

I’m still looking for ways to use up some of my fabric stash.  Recently I ran across a post by Melissa at Happy Quilting introducing the Star Surround Quilt Along.  This is my third QAL I planned to join with the intention of pulling from my stash.  I never got out of the box with the other two, but hopefully I will do better with this one.

I’ve at least made a start.  The fabric has been cut and waiting for the next step.  (The next problem is I’m just adding to my scrap bin!)

Crista’s Quilts and Intrepid Threads have put together some great fabric bundles for this QAL.  Below are only two of them.  You should go check them out.
