Stars Quiltalong

Cecile and Bea are doing their yearly quiltalong. This year the theme is stars, so I jumped on the bandwagon for my firs time joining in on it.

Christy was working on her star blocks at our retreat and I was too.

Here's will be a lovely patriotic quilt!!

My blocks will finish at 4" and I'm trying to use the reproduction neons, although I"m faking it on a few blocks, cause I don't have enough neon. 

The minimum blocks to make is 16. Mine are making a fun leader/ender project.

I got binding on 3 quilts this weekend and will soon have my first finish of 2020!! 
Whoop! Whoop!

I'm going to be hiking as much as I can in preparation for trekking in Peru. 

It felt like spring on Saturday...

back to cold and chilly Sunday...

Regardless of your weather, make it a fantastic week!


  1. We had a sunny Friday afternoon and Sunday afternoon so I was able to get in some nice walks but mostly it’s just rain, rain, rain around here.

  2. great stars!
    you should be getting your swap blocks too - you'll be swimming in stars

  3. Fun stars! We've had a strange winter here, one day snowy and frigid, and a couple days later its sunny and in the 40s and 50s. It will be good to see the first daffodils emerge.

  4. Love your stars !! And thank you for your participation !

  5. Neon stars - what a brilliant idea! (pardon the pun) Lori, email me your mailing addy and I'll send you some neons. I have a nice stack I've been collecting and will gladly share with you. Meanwhile maybe I'll make some neon stars of my own... :-)

  6. What a beautiful view! Have fun with your stars :0)

  7. For the third weekend in a row, we had a snowstorm. Seems like all I do weekend is shoveling! Anywho! Love your Neon stars. Christy's crumb stars are awesome too. ;^)

  8. BOTH of those Star quilts are going to be fantastic!!

  9. Pretty stars Lori! I joined this challenge too, have fun!

  10. Love the idea of making your star centres with all of those scraps!

  11. Wonderful beginnings for quilts! I don't need more beginnings, I need finishes! Still have to finish my Stars In a Time Warp!

  12. Neon Stars! Color me [neon] green with envy. Those prints are so hard to find. And will make a beautifully antique looking quilt. Did you see Nancy's post on Joy for Grace blog, where she used neon/ bright permanent fabric markers to add neon to her Cheddarback fabrics. Very cool results.
