Midnight Stars Quilt Top - Completed

Midnight Stars Doll Quit.  Designer: Lori D. Size: 22" square
My thanks to Lori for hosting this wonderful QAL.  I really enjoyed myself making this quilt.  One of the setting squares had to be pieced because I only had a skinny quarter.  I don't know when I'll get it quilted but what I do know is it'll be a cheddar binding.

I've started again with the free star block quilt by Blackbird Designs.  I am using an older fabric collection also by Blackbird Designs called Beach House with Kona Snow.

The Civil War Block 5 Kansas Troubles is completed.  This was sure a challenge to get right, even then the points are not exactly perfect.

I have progressed some on Prairie Schooler's More Friends.  It's still on the frame and the lighting was bad to take a pic.  It's been drizzling the whole of yesterday and part of today.  Sure is cold lately.

    All good stuff going on - love the BBD fabs.

  2. Lori's QAL has been very popular and your version looks great. The star theme seems to be very popular with you at the moment. Still trying to finish my seven sisters - 2 stars to go.

  3. Love your Midnight Stars quilt top, the star blocks look wonderful, love the fabrics you used. Bravo! for completing the Kansas Troubles block, mine is only a 1/4 done at this stage!

    And the Kansas Troubles block is so pretty in those colors. Great job.

  5. Your doll quilt really does look like sparkling stars at midnight! I love it!!
    The beach house fabric is so pretty in your other star project and your latest CW block is so pretty!!
    Nice work!!

  6. Seeing your Midnight Stars top makes me regret not have done the QAL this time.

    I loved doing it last time. *sigh* And your CW blocks look fabulous.

    I am way behind on mine as I have been busy testing blocks for the quilt group, quilting a UFO, stitching and working on my house blocks patchwork which were a gift from my quilt group. Humm...I never have a spare moment but I really want to make this CW quilt so can you send me some extra hours for my day? :-)

    Hugs from Holland ~
