I was looking through my blog over the weekend, and realized that I never shared my finished quilt top for the #apqquiltalong project! I had a few little deadlines pop up on me and I folded up the top before I got it posted here - sorry! My quilt measures 75" x 93" - which [...]

Last week I shared my Quilt-along progress, and I'm excited to have even more progress to share today! I sewed up the block centers - and love the way the colors are coming together, the varied blues, with a touch of green is just right! I also did some strip-piecing, and trimmed them up for [...]

Last week I finished all my Dancing Stars blocks and was so excited to put them together into a top. It took me a couple nights of intense sewing (the best kind, right?) and multiple episodes of Parenthood on Netflix - I have a quilt top! 98 blocks 6" each, set on point; the top [...]

After I finished piecing 30 Dancing Stars blocks last month, I immediately copied more of the pattern, intent on sewing up a few here and there.  Which didn't happen.  I thought I would sew 10-15 instead of 30 at once, instead I'm sewing them all up! I'm just beginning the 68 remaining blocks, but hopeful that I [...]
