It has been one of those weeks that it feels like I haven't accomplished much sewing. This is Jan Patek's Bible quilt block 3. It isn't quite finished and if you look close you can see my pencil marks that I need to stitch over in the second row. I should be able to finish it tonight.


Here are two stars I made for Moda's Just One Star Program. I don't think they'll have any problem getting 1800 stars. I encourage you to be a part of it!
Ok, so two days ago I thought I'd had enough winter and thought I would take down my Country Threads quilt. I love "Let it Snow" but only for so long. I'm so over it!
The next day look what I saw outside my front door! Woo-hoo! Signs of spring!!

  1. Love the red and white quilt in your banner. Your Let It Snow quilt is so cute and cozy. I really should make some stars since I'm already in star mode. Bring on Spring!

  2. Yea! ...for crocus outside your door! Yea! ...Spring!

    I'm doing the Bible BOM but haven't started the first block. I'm waiting until spring break to begin. Hopefully, I'll get the first two completed before the 3rd arrives...

    *fingers crossed*

  3. Your Just One Star blocks look great, I'm sure these star quilts will be most appreciated!!! Isn't nice to see little colours of life peep out of the ground after all that snow!!!

  4. I love the Bible quilt block. That is precious.

    I made one star today for the Just One Star Cause and am going to make another one or two next week after the wedding. What a great cause, and I don't think they'll have any problem with getting the needed 1800 either. They will probably have to keep quilting :D

    Nice that you can see signs of spring. It snowed here today:/

    Blessings

  7. I took down my Snowbound quilt last week, but my crocus have yet to bloom. It's supposed to get a little warmer tomorrow, so maybe they will open up. My "just one star" went out in the mail today. Great project!

  10. Love the change of header. It would have to be red and white wouldn't it!
    I always like the primitive style of Jane Pateks quilts although I have never made one.
    1800 Stars is not to much to ask with all you quilters in the U.S of A.
    Spring time quilt is needed, Not sure you would do rabbits though. LOL

  11. I agree that your red/white banner quilt is stunning!

    I am loving all the bulbs coming up - now we are getting the daffodils. And fruit trees are also budding up, so blossom time soon. Can't wait!

    Your Bible block is great and I really like your stars. That's on my list to do this weekend.

  14. I have wanted to make the "Let It Snow" quilt for several years. I hadn't even thought about it for a good while. Time to put out those spring quilts.

    Another Bible block. I have been waiting for you to post one. A very folk art appeal to them.

  15. It is such fun to see the signs of spring popping up all over - indoors and out *s*

  16. The lupines and poppies are starting to make their appearance here in the desert, so spring is coming! I agree that they will get plenty of stars as the word spreads.

  21. Yeah for the blooms, I'm still looking at green sprouts. Love the long johns on your winter quilt, how fun! Yes, I think Moda will easily get 1800 blocks.

  22. Great new block.
    I am so over the cold and snow too...but my snowmen quilts are still up. Maybe if I take them down it will warm up?
    I have to go get the instructions for the star blocks so I can get some made and sent off.

    Love the little crocus popping up!

  31. Thanks for sharing that lovely crocus. Spring definitely can't come too soon.
    I'm glad you showed your blocks for the "Just One Star" quilts. They reminded me that I forgot to sign mine. Oops.
    It's certainly a great project.
