Creighton Quilt Complete, Star QAL Begins!

The college quilt is now completely quilted, bound and labeled.

This quilting design took a little to get used to but I found it
to be fun and it was definitely a good choice for this quilt.

So, with my monthly banners and BOM all caught up
and the college quilt completed,
I am guilt-free all set to start in on some new projects.
Last year at this time, still weeks before kickoff, I was putting
all of my effort into helping out with football.  Right up to that
final glorious win at State, football consumed almost all of my time.
This year, things will be very different.
Our youngest starts his last year of high school tomorrow and the
day after our other son is headed 4 1/2 hours away to college
The house is about to be very quiet.
Except for the sewing room.

Just this week I've started two new quilts,
one of which is Happy Quilting's Seeing Stars QAL.

Today I'm linking up to Happy Quilting
with the first set of blocks.

It is so good to be working with fall colors again.

Each of these blocks are 24"...

which makes them the biggest I've ever worked with.
And completely opposite the blocks in my
other new project that I hope to post tomorrow.

Happy quilting!

Wow....great job. Love the swirly quilting and you can never go wrong with it. I am sure this one will be loved a lot. Your next stars are wonderful.....big and bold too! You will find a new rhythm for your life, as your nest empties.
All I've had time to do is print out the directions for the stars. I have had a bucket of lovely blues pulled for a star quilt, for several years now. I'll be using those. I got another great star quilt pattern book off the freebie table at guild last night.

There is a fix for comments. Email me, and I'll send it to you.

Your blocks look so great!!! I love those beautiful fall fabrics as well and your fabric combinations are perfect ;) And so glad you enjoyed working with big blocks, sometimes it is fun to see a huge amount of progress in a smaller amount of work. But no worries, they will get smaller and smaller as we go along ;)
