Star Struck 2


My living room (aka sewing room) is covered in stars. Bonnie at Quiltville.com has the pattern and it's awesome. I get to making these blocks and can't quit. So..I have almost 100 at this point. Setting them together tonight while I wait for the second Orange Crush clue. No other news.....just twiddling my thumbs.....hehehe

You've done a FANTASTIC job. I love the colours and anyone ought to be very happy to be the recipient of the quilt.

Is that done with HST' or did you have to physically sew triangles together. I hate sewing triangles, but adore that quilt.

We are like kids at Christmas, waiting for that Part 2 on the Orange Crush! :) I keep checking her site! :)

I LOVE your quilt! Wow! 100 stars! That is alot but it is beautiful!!! One of my favorites. Actually I printed off her Scrappy Trips Around The World a few weeks ago and have been cutting strips for it a little at a time.

I've printed off directions for this quilt and your lovely blocks have enthused me even more

I love this quilt - this pattern was actually one of the first quilts my sister and I collaborated on - for a baby quilt. She bought the lights and I bought brights and we piled them all on her dining room table one Friday evening and started cutting. It was a great weekend! By Sunday we had a top!

Oh I love this quilt! It really has the scrappy look and the stars just pop.

I love this, and the Carolina Crossroads. Beautiful! I have been sewing leaders & enders together, trying to get enough pieces for one of Bonnie's Oklahoma Backroads. I want to surprise my Mom (an Okie) with it someday.

Your starts are absolutely stunning!

Your Star Struck is beautiful. I love the colors and the pattern. I also love your blog, I could just reach right in and have some beans and home made bread. I'm a new blogger, and I have been tagged, so if you are willing, I'm passing it on. It is just 7 weird or random things about you, and it kind of makes you think. The rules are on my blog:

Wow. Cool quilt. I love it. How did you keep track and not turn anything the wrong way?

I love that quilt! You did a great job. I have been drooling over Bonnie's picture for a while now and now your picture moved that up on my 'to do' list!

Tracy said...

Love this star struck quilt. I have the Double Irish Chain that I am working on between steps for the OC. And you say you are a novice quilter? Doesn't look like it.

The Star Struck quilt is amazing. I think I will go now and download the instructions and that can become my leader/ender quilt. Keep up the great work.

WOW! That's wonderful!

Helen in the UK said...

Your Star Struck is going to be gorgeous. Particulary like the flashes of reds and lime greens :)

Rhonda said...

Beautiful! It will make a lovely quilt. I'm doing a Star Struck too for the last two years, but as a leader/ender... so it VERY SLOW going. ;o)

Amy (lilme2_99) said...

Ooooooooooooo!!!! I am agreeing with Amanda!!!! Seeing how AWESOME your stars look make me want to jump right in to make one myself!!
But....no...no...no...no...NOT YET! Too many WIP's whose deadlines are only a few weeks away.
So......more blocks to come???? OR is 100 enough????
Can't wait to see the masterpiece finished!

Great stars! Love the colors!!! Are you sending it to me??? ;)

Elaine Adair said...

What a great version of Star STruck. I made one also, and was amazed at how quickly it went together, and accurately!

Good Job!

Hi
Thank for sharing your quilt photo. I am making this quilt just now & love it!

What did you do with all your 1/2 square triangles? I have been sewing mine as Bonnie suggested.

Love Leanne NZ
