You guys, I just finished the most time consuming quilt I have ever made! Oh how my respect for quilters who do all the fancy stuff has grown. And this was an easy quilt! Time consuming, but not difficult. I have always wanted to do a quilt along because I figured it would help me get through making a large quilt like this one. I have a tendency to get bored when a project takes too long. Anyone else? So I went searching and found an old quilt along on Happy Quilting (great name for a blog right? I mean it has “happy” in it haha). It’s called the Star Surround Quilt Along and I fell in love with the design.
I had this big pile of Lark by Amy Butler fat quarters that I wanted to use for this. I did have to add in one solid color to make up for being short one fat quarter, but I was happy to use that big bundle up.
I’m not quite sure when I will do such a pattern again, but I’m sure my love for these style of quilts will convince me to go back and make one for myself next time. I dream of this being loved very much and one day in the future being a very cool vintage quilt adored by others, like me, that appreciate this type of sewing. -Jess
