Star Cross #2 Finished


Another one off the list!!!  I actually finished this version of Star Cross a few days before the end of the year.  I just didn't brave the cold snowy weather to take pictures.  Oh what a difference 24 hours can make.  I have non snow and snow pictures to show.

If you are looking for a quick easy project to practice ruler work on, this one is a great one.  Geraldine at Living Water Quilter hosted a quilt along for the project, walking you through the steps of quilting it using a straight quilting ruler.  You can find it here.


This time around, I decided to add borders to the mini quilt to make it a bit bigger, 30" square.  I also added hanging tabs to the back, so that it could be used as a wall hanging or possibly a table piece.  It will either be gifted, or donated to the next cause that calls my name.



I still have one more of these to quilt up.  David made a version of the small quilt right before I made this one.  I may try to quilt his a bit differently and may even ask him to draw me up a quilting plan.  But it will have to wait for a little bit, other projects are calling for my attention right now.

If you know someone who is new to quilt blogging or has been thinking about starting one up, please let them know the 2018 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop will be having sign ups starting February 1st.  If you or someone you know has been blogging for less than 3 years, you can sign up (even if you participated last year).  I promise it will be a good time!


If you have been blogging for more than 3 years, I hope you will consider following along and supporting this years new group of quilting peeps.  I think I've made new friends every year thanks to the blog hop, just hopping around and getting to know the bloggers.  Plus there will be prizes...and who doesn't love those??  More info will be coming soon as we are finalize the details for this year's hop.





For now I'm going to celebrate this small UFO victory and prepare for our linky party starting on Saturday.  What will you be working on?  Are you tackling a UFO or WIP?  Are you distracting yourself and completely ignoring them?  I hope to find out just what you are up to this weekend.  So write up a post and feel free to join me.  


Today I'm linking up with Let's Bee Social and Midweek Makers.

Three days into the new year and you have new finish to share!!! That is one way to start the new year, or lead the way or put other quilters to shame. The quilting is beautiful, as usual. No snow here but it is bitterly cold. I will step out to take pictures when the low temps stop being in single digits. BRRRRR....

Another great finish Tish. Always fun to see what quilting plan you come up with. I guess I am ingmoring my UFO's. I started 2 new things in the last couple days, nope didn't finish either 'yet'. But will work on the Valentines one today again and hope to finish it tomorrow so I can get it in my Etsy shop.

Congratulations on the finish and what great texture. The snow and non-snow photos are fun, and I hope you are staying warm in this crazy weather!

Oh, I like the blues and browns together! The quilting is really cool. I haven't tried rulers yet; I'm just getting to know my AcuFeed foot. I've been busy tackling UFOs. I'm pretty jazzed about that!
