A productive weekend!

Annstars I got the blocks finished for my Anniversary Stars quilt.  They are not sewn together in rows, mind you, but they are finished!  As my daughter remarked "That's a big quilt!" but I am happy to report that all of it fits on my design wall - yay!

I also seem to have revived my quilting enthusiasm!  I had 4 packages of Moda Sonnet charm squares, and was pondering what to do with them.  I ended up paging through my favorite quilt books - the Around the Block series by Judy Hopkins - and found a block that will work well with the charm squares.  I made 2 blocks and like the way they look so far.

Sonnet I will need to order some more background fabric, as my local shop was sold out when I went to get more yardage yesterday, but this one is well on the way and will be one of the projects I take on my retreat in early November.


  1. A very productive week end indeed. Anniversary Stars is beautiful - are you more pleased now that you see it "as a whole"?
    The blocks with Sonnet charms are great. I have a ton of charm packs that need to become quilt tops.
    Very, very pretty!

  2. Yay! You are quilting again! That quilt is beautiful. Love the new squares too. =)

  3. Glad to hear that your quilting mojo has come back! How's your shoulder holding out? I actually swam 4 freestyle laps in a row the other day. A new personal record! Whohoo! :)

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog! I have LOTS of scrap quilts... will post more pics as time allows. I love YOUR scrap quilts (and I've been collecting Moda charm packs too).

  5. Just wanted to tell you how pretty your Anniversary Stars quilt is. It's in my colors, so if you need my address to send it to me, just hollar. It's gorgeous!
