Working away...

I made several more "another star" blocks today.  I have to say that this quilt in the works is making me very happy.  All the bright florals just work for me.  I haven't thought of how many blocks I need, I'll just keep making them until it feels right.  I do think this needs to be a big one though.

I also had to decide on a binding for my scrappy stash quilt for the scrappy stash quilt along.  I must have pulled a dozen or more fabrics before deciding on this blue stripe.  It is a moda from a way back.  I really wanted a black and white strip like Rita of Red Pepper Quilts uses often for bindings but the right black and white stripe is hard to find.  It is my current quest.  When I find it, I am going to buy a lot of it!

Linking up with Judy's design wall Monday.  Lot's of sewing happened this weekend so lots of things to show this week!  Stay tuned!


  1. I have been looking for black and white stripes as well. Here is a squiggle stripe:


  2. I really like the secondary pattern that this is making. and the bright florals make it great too!

  3. Your stars quilt is absolutely gorgeous! Love those super bright florals.

  4. Wow! Those stars are gorgeous! I'm not putting a border on my Scrappy Stash QAL either, I think yours looks great! Black and white stripe eh? How fat are the stripes you are looking for?

  5. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that star quilt!!!!! I personally like the blue binding!
