WIP- the one where I am back and finally did something!

Well... I have finally returned and finally started some sewing again!It felt great, too! I started the Star Surround quilt along with Melissa at Happy Quilting on time, finished the top on time... and then set it aside. I am sure you know how that goes. Finally I am done! I am so happy about it, too. It fueled me into doing some actually sewing again. Not all the time mind, not all or nothing, but adding it in to my day here and there as I can. I think that is working better for me as well. I seem to be more productive!

So here is the front of my Star Surround (there was one flying geese that is facing the wrong way but I did not notice it until it was quilted darnnit! Oh well, its only for me)

and the back... I hadn't lint rolled it yet so excuse the thread and fuzz from the cats lol

Even though I bought a FMQ class during a Craftsy sale I still have not ventured in to FMQ, so this is all straight line echo quilting, but it was the most intricate I have done so far and I love it :)

Terrible lighting on this one, but it was taken at night. I started a mini with a mini paper pieced pattern I got at a quilt show last year. This is a RAK for a friend. Just need to put it together now!

That's it, but I am off to a good start again and boy does it feel good! :)



  1. Love your star surround quilt. Lovely quilting and the fabrics are great.

  2. Absolutely gorgeous!!! What a stunning job you did on the quilting!! And no worries on that rouge geese, I never saw it until you mentioned it and I went looking. Just fabulous!! Way to finish it up ;)

  3. Your Star Surround is gorgeous... The quilting is just beautiful. Very nice job!

  4. Your quilting really highlights the blocks! Great job!

  5. Love, love your Star Surround! Great job with the quilting :)

  6. I am staring and staring and staring and I cannot see the wrong-way goose. It just looks lovely to me.


Thanks for taking the time to comment, it always makes my day!
