Do you like Sew Alongs? I sure do...whether it's online or with a local sewing group, I find it gives me motivation and tons of inspiration! I have really enjoyed sewing along with Terry at Terry's Treasures the last couple of years.
First was the Scrappy Stars....unfortunately, it's not quilted yet. But I love how bright and cheery it is!
This winter brought the Goodnight Irene quilt....and this one has been gifted to my beautiful niece.
And now Terry's chosen the Charming Stars quilt for the next project! Click on the link for the FREE pattern. Like I mentioned in my last post, I'm using a layer cake for my "charms." I just cut the 10" squares into 5" inch squares and voila!! I'm ready to go! I'm using a muslin for the stars and it looks REALLY white in the picture...but it's a little darker in real life. The light stars definitely POP though!
There isn't a requirement for how many blocks you sew at a time, or monthly, etc, but Terry suggests two or so each month....it's just fun to share progress as we go along. Since this is Christmas fabric, I -might- try to work a bit quick to possibly get in done in time for a Christmas gift? Ohhh...that's asking a lot, huh? LOL These blocks are quick and easy...this whole quilt would go together really fast! Also, I hadn't really thought about how big they are!! Something like 14" square! Woohoo!
Of course, I can't let the bonus triangles go waste...I have a project in mind for them already and decided I needed to get it started and keep it going during the sew along too. Any guesses what it might end up to be? :)
Can't wait to see what fabrics everyone else is using! Thanks for another fun Sew Along Terry!
