Milky Way Sampler QAL Block 9

I've been quietly building a collection of blocks from the Milky Way Sampler QAL from Alyce at Blossom Heart Quilts.  It is a very fun series of stars and I'm making two quilts (one for school auction and one for home). This block, called Betelgeuse, got interesting with its bulky seams.  The paper piecing process … Continue reading Milky Way Sampler QAL Block 9

“Home” Pixie Summer QAL Finish 2017 04-08

I loved making this quilt, despite my love / hate relationship with the very teeny tiny stars for the last couple of blocks.  It all started last summer.  Pixie Summer Home Quilt-A-Long. The cloud like quilting creates a beautiful look around the houses with just enough depth to stand out from the trees and houses. … Continue reading “Home” Pixie Summer QAL Finish 2017 04-08
