Star Light Star Bright Quilt-A-Long (Sure I can!)


At the last minute I have decided to join Melissa in her Star Light Star Bright Quilt-A-Long.  I have been waffling with the decision ever since she announced it in early January.  I thought I had finally convinced myself that I really didn't have time to participate and had erased it from my schedule and project list.





 My how things can change in a day!  I guess my defiant self is who got out of bed this morning and  decided to heck with sleep for the next few weeks.  I so enjoyed the Star Surround quilt I made in Melissa's last QAL,  I really do want to join in so I pulled some fabric, put it back on my project list and wrote it back into my blog schedule.



I decided to go with some Malka Dubrawsky fabrics I had purchased some time ago.  This is from her Simple Marks line.

I also pulled some dark blue Quilter's Linen and an older Moda cross weave for some possible backgrounds.  Not sure yet which way I will go.







I am hoping to work this amazing fabric in and create some fun effects in the HSTs.  I plan on making the 28" blocks so if my math is correct, these squares should just work!



I'm excited to get started!

Sharing my madness with Freemotion by the River, Quiltstory, Sew Fresh Quilts and Freshly Pieced.  If I tell enough people, then I'm committed to the project!

I like that blue! Is that spiral fabric stitched or just printed to look that way?
