Need your opinions please…

December 31, 2009 7 comments

Ok – I need your opinions. Be totally honest.. it’s not too late.


I’ve made 3 setting blocks so far and I am using the same cream fabric that I sent each of you for the blocks – along with the deep red version. But now as I see them together – I’m worried that the red is too dark and over powering.

I didn’t use the red anywhere in any of the stars. And I thought it would help to pull the reds out of the stars.  

Do you think it will look ok all together and the stars will all POP ? Or should I opt for a more muted fabric?

What are your thoughts? Talk to me.

Star Sampler – Week 10

December 30, 2009 3 comments

Here it is!  There was ALOT of fudging involved in the making of this square.  I just couldn’t quite make it work with one of the given measurements for the Flying Geese patches around the border (errors with my technique, I’m sure, but nonetheless…..).  So after a lot of seam ripping, I re-cut some of the brown fabric using my own measurements and then trimmed back.  As the saying: “All’s well that ends well,” and I do think that it’s beautiful.  Heidi, your fabric selections are gorgeous, and this quilt is going to be gorgeous when it’s put together.  This was a fantastic idea, and I can’t wait to see more stars and the final product.

Due to the holiday, I think it will probably be in the mail on Monday.

Happy New Year to all of you,

I’ve received two blocks and they are so pretty! Here is a picture of them with the block that I made along with a setting block that I have done.

This is going to be so pretty! I’m so excited.
But remember.. no rush. I know it’s a busy time for people and I still have 11 setting blocks to make. yikes!!
Thank you everyone! You are such talented people.

Week #9 for Heidi

December 23, 2009 4 comments

I think this is a fun idea.  I received week 9.  I must say, if I had been working on this block for myself (and doing 11 more), I most certainly would not have put as much effort into trying to make the corners line up.  It’s not perfect, but not too bad.  If I do say so myself.

Thanks for putting this one together Heidi! 🙂

Heidi’s block #11

December 19, 2009 2 comments

Here is the block that Heidi assigned to me, #11. I have to say that when I saw that there were triangles involved, I was a bit nervous. I don’t get along with triangle points very well, but I must be getting better because I am very happy with the result. I hope you enjoy this Heidi!

Finally.. I’m mailing my fabs!

I decided on a pattern, picked out the fabric and did the math. Now I’ve finally packaged it all up and it’s going in the mail tomorrow.

Let’s hope I did the math correctly – let me know if you don’t have enough fabric. No worries on getting them back by the end of the month. I’m late getting them out and I know everyone is busy this time of year.

Let me know if you have questions! Happy Sewing!
