So I finally felt like sewing yesterday! Yay! It's about time. I'm gonna be pretty busy since we leave for Tennessee two weeks from today and I need to have this quilt done for the wedding gift. Why oh why do I procrastinate so much?! I always pay for it in the end...
So anyway, I'm making this quilt for my brother-in-law and future sister-in-law. I knew I wanted to make them a quilt, but didn't know where to start knowing they are more traditional. I decided I wanted to make them a large throw sized quilt for them to snuggle under on the couch together. Their living room is decorated in an Americana theme so there were my colors and I wanted to keep with the theme by doing some kind of star pattern. That's when I remembered seeing this Chubby Starts QAL over at Tracyjay Quilts. Perfect!
I got all of this piecing done yesterday. I've had everything cut since the middle of August and had six blocks done for the past month. I finished three more blocks yesterday as well.
Those chain pieces finish at an inch! They are really hard to piece accurately, but oh well. I like the way it is turning out and I know they will love it. I'm calling it Wedding Stars!
I need to get busy so back to sewing!
