Star Quilt-Along

I joined Amandajean's "star quilt-along".  I found her blog last year when she was working on her first quilt-along, and watched how fun everybody was having.  When she announced her second one two weeks ago, I got very excited.  Amandajean is going to walk us through thirteen stars (one a week), and then help us finish them into a 85" square quilt.  Here are the week one and two blocks I made this morning.  They are not perfect, the triangles took a few tries to match the corners, but I had a lot of fun making them.

I love the star quilt and have made a few...they turn out so beautiful. I love the ones you are making. They are very beautiful and it doesn't look like you had a hard time at all. Besides I think they look better when they aren't perfect. I can't wait to see the finish project. I have only make baby quilts never a large one.

I also wanted to tell you about a website that I love. If you get a chance take a look. Click on "sewing" and it shows all their great projects...a lot of them they use patterns but some they make themselves. It is really fun and inspiring to look through!

Hi Kim,
Thank you for telling me about Sugar City Journal. I had a lot of fun looking at their beautiful creations. I also added many things to my project list. I will put the site in my favorites so I can check back again.
