Just started a new scrappy quilt!

Just a quick post as I've become rather engrossed in a new patchwork quilt!

It's a Bright Stars Quilt from Michele Foster......It's a can find the pattern here.

The quilt uses lots of 2.5" squares which I already have cut out....remember my holiday in Brittany last year where I took my Accuquilt and cut loads of squares from scraps!

I've been sorting them into lights and darks to make the bright stars quilt....

So far I've sewn some 2 patch units....

...and some 4 patch units.....

Next I'm making some HSTs so I can put a block together to make sure the pattern works with all my scrappy squares!

I'll be back soon to show you how it's going!

Thanks for popping by!

  1. Oh! What a great way to start the new year! I don't have an Accuquilt though! LOL! I can't wait to see more....I love what I see so far! You go girl!

  2. Your link doesn't work. Is it Bright Stars or Delightful Stars? Have fun!

    1. It seems to be working now...I think there was a problem with the site earlier. It's the bright stars.

  3. It looks fun! I can't wait to see more. Are you making it for your house in France?

  4. Your quilt pieces are looking great!!:)

  5. Some truly beautiful looking fabrics, a real delight to see. Looking forward to seeing more.

  6. I love this, makes me want to give it a try one day...
    As a person who's never quilted in her life it looks so difficult!
    But all those pretty pieces of fabric look so inviting...
    Lots of love from Mirjam.


I always love to hear from you!
