And So It Begins

Yesterday my mom and I settled into the sewing room, and I have officially finished my first 12 inch block of the Texas Stars quilt.


I’m starting out small and simple. It’s been a while since I last did more intricate piecing, so for right now I’m taking baby steps. I love this block though. The bright buttery yellow and the deep red really pop together nicely.

Just as a reminder, I need star blocks!!!! The sizes I’m looking for are: 12″, 8″, 6″, and 4″ blocks. Anything star like would be great. Also, if you have any tips or tricks for the best way to piece things, that would be great. I’m definitely in the learning stage here.

Thanks loves!

  1. It is great to sew with your mom. Those days will always be treasures.
    I like your sewing table. I have one like that with a 301A in it. That machine is one of my best friends
    Happy Week-end

  2. Hi, I wanted to send you a picture of a pattern I had found from a post by one of your other readers. When your post came in yesterday about the different stars and sizes I thought of this pattern, and I didn’t know if this was something that you would be interested in. It makes a 72 x 72 in quilt. When you get a chance get back to me and let me know. Also, this was the quilt that i was wondering about, you were hoping to finish it off with gold Star blocks. Sent from my iPad
