So you don't lose all interest...

Starcake We've all been working on a family project for school with my two 6th graders, so not a lot of quilting has been accomplished here this month.  I did, however, receive this beauty back from the quilter and wanted to share some pictures, although my pictures really do not do the quilt justice.

It's made with one layer cake, background and borders from the Simplicity collection, and the pattern is called Star Cakes.  It makes a huge (85x85) quilt with almost no effort.

I will always have fond memories of this quilt because I started it in April when I made my first trip to California to visit my dear friend Nicole.  In fact, I think I might call it California Dreaming.

Starcake1 I absolutely adore the beautiful free-form feathers that my quilter did on it.  It's certainly a breath of spring on a cold fall day!

Here's wishing everyone a very happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Lisa, that quilting job is SENSATIONAL!!!! Amazing, incredible, fabulous.

  2. That is a beautiful quilt and the quilting is great. What a treasure and such great memories. I made a wall quilt using that same set of fabrics. Your post has reminded me that I need to finish the quilting on it!

  3. Your pictures certainly do give this quilt justice! It's beautiful and "California Dreaming" is the perfect name.....Nancy in WI

  4. Beautiful quilt, beautiful quilting! I love that pattern! It shows off the fabric so very well. Happy Thanksgiving!!

  5. This quilt turned out just great. Gorgeous! I have this pattern and some fabric to go with it, just finding time to make it.

  6. Yeah, I think I might call it that...
