Star Quilt Along Fun!

In the last week, I've finally been able to catch up on my projects—including amandajean's Star Quilt Along. I'm having so much fun with this project. It's a very different approach than I'm used to, so not only am I stretching myself and learning a lot, but I also think it will result in a really wonderful quilt.

Here are my latest blocks:

Week 6:

I'm not sure why, but this one was really difficult for me, both in choosing the fabrics and in actual construction. This is a little weird since I had no problems with the week 5 block, and that one is supposedly a lot harder.

With this one, I'm breaking into cooler tones. It feels as up to this point, I have been using very warm colors. I think adding some of the blue/purple will offer some nice effects. I hope.

Setting Block:

I've only managed to get one of these complete, but the fabric is all cut and ready to go for the others. This green is the one fabric I've purchased for the project. All the rest have been from the stash.


  1. Robin...You know I LOVE how this quilt is looking. Block 6 is beautiful! And the setting block fabric will pull the blocks together so well. I can't wait to see it. Hope things are going well. Love Stacy

  2. oooo, I love your week 6 block. the fabrics that you paired together are excellent! (of course I am partial to gingham!)

  3. I love the setting block, can't wait to see the whole quilt together.

  4. Wow, your points are nice! I think your final quilt will be really beautiful! Great colors!
