Announcing..... A Scrappy Star Quilt Along!

Want to join me in a Quilt Along?  Are you ready for a challenge?  Here she is!






Follow my blog to get the news when I make my first post about the Quilt Along on June 21st.... My 10th wedding anniversary and, bonus.... the first day of summer!  Whoo - Hooo!



And don't forget to grab my "Quilt Along with Me!" button from my sidebar if you would like to join in the fun.  Clicking on the linky button will bring you directly to this page where I will be archiving all the posts from the quilt along for easy reference.



Hope you will consider following Sew Fresh Quilts so you'll be sure to know when the fun begins!  It's easy as pie to do!  Just click on one of the buttons at the sidebar.  There are plenty of options...

I have also added a new tab to my sidebar, called Quilt Along Flickr Group.  Clicking on this tab will take you directly to the Quilt Along with Sew Fresh Quilts Flickr group where anyone can add their pictures to the pool and share in the summer quilt along love!

I grabbed your button.....hope to be able to participate

Sounds great, Sherry! I am happy to hear it. Hope we won't be lonely!

It's a pretty big project, which has me concerned that most readers
would likely not want to commit to. But I have worked out the scrappy
background to be sewn a lot like the scrappy trip. So it isn't like
we'll be cutting out a whole whack of 2.5" squares and sewing them up
one by one!

Glad you're on board!
Your quilty buddy,
Lorna:)

Alright, Nancy-Rose! I'm so happy to hear you are interested. Looking forward to quilting with you!

That is an enticing diagram! I like how you've pulled the scraps into warm, cool, and neutral. I have SO much on the go this summer, but I will be looking to see your finished quilt. (I always seem to do QALs after the fact, anyway.)

Lorna McMahon said...

Thank you, sew much for the thoughtful comment, Laura. You hit the nail on the head concerning the warm/cool/neutral. Those are the key elements that developed in the process of transferring the design from first spark of idea to paper. I appreciate your interest and hope you will be following along. I'm sew looking forward to seeing everyone's take on the design!

Looks like a fun project. Too bad I've already got too much on the go.

I will be watching your QAL from the cheering section. Have some things I want to start on myself and a little vacation coming up too, but wish you and the QAL-ers a ton of fun! It looks like a beautiful quilt. Love the bright stars against the neutral background!

Lorna McMahon said...

Thank you, Paulette! I appreciate your visit and am glad to hear you will be in our cheering section. Hope we make you proud!

Thank you, Robin, for being such a wonderful hostess. I appreciate being a part of it whenever I have something to share and being able to see what everyone is up to even when I don't. PS. I love the new look of your blog! Fresh!

I am joining late, okay very late, but I am excited about making this quilt, though I might have to tweak a few colors to accommodate my stash and scraps. Please let me know if you end up doing something different about this QAL. Sometimes people will reboot them with a smaller size or different fabrics and I have a few undone projects from that sort of thing, haha.
