Star Crazy

While catching up on reading blogs last month, I found this wonderful star pattern BOM. It is through The Quilt Show, that is sponsored by Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. When I saw it, I knew that I had to do it. Stars are my absolute favorite pattern. I finally finished the January blocks, you can see them to the right. I have almost finished the ones for February. I am also excited that I am able to use up some of my stash on this project. I did have to buy the white for the background and a couple of the fabrics for the stars. I went through my stash first to see what I had, then went to the quilt shop. I am stepping out of my comfort zone on this one. I am actually following the colors on the website, they are very bright and I am more of a traditional kind of person. I do like the way the first month has turned out. Apparently hubby does too, he never mentions anything on my design wall, but he make a comment about these blocks and how much he liked them. I hope to finish the ones for February this weekend.

They look terrific! Don't worry, my hubby never looks at my design wall. And if he does, he never says anything.

Great looking project. I don't think Marion has ever commented that he liked a quilt project. He does always ask, "Who is that quilt for?"
