Star Quilt-a-long!

When I saw that amandajean was embarking on a new quilt-a-long adventure, I jumped on the chance to join in. I missed out on her first quilt-a-long, so I am extra excited to be able to participate in this one. This may be a foolish decision on my part, because, really, I am already feeling as if I can't keep up with what I'm doing now. On the other hand though it looks like so much fun! And who couldn't use a little more fun?

As the boy is napping, I've had a little time to work and I just completed Block 1. Yay!

star quilt-a-long block 1
The print fabric in this block has the great distinction of being the first-ever fabric I bought "just because." Up to that point, I had been purchasing on a project-to-project basis. But I saw it and I just had to have it even though I didn't have any plan in mind. The beginning of a seriously slippery slope of stashaholism! Anyway, I love this fabric and I think it is going to be my inspiration for this quilt. We'll see what happens.


  1. I love just because fabric. Your block is beautiful.

  2. I, too joined the quilt along. I am so excited. I haven't finished the last one but am working on it. I am going to try to keep up with this one though. I love your block.

  3. Your block is wonderful and the fabric is gorgeous.

    I still hesitate to buy fabric just because I like it. I want to, but I haven't gotten to that point yet. I'm kinda afraid I'll come home with the whole store.

  4. I LOVE the shirt for your little boy!!! I made a shirt for my little man for Easter, and there are definately more in the future! Your first star block looks great too! Em
