Stargyle Quilt Progress

How was your week?  I spent my week working on a few projects for Westminster/Free Spirit Fabrics, but managed to keep up with my quilt alongs as I went.  The 365 Quilt Challenge blocks have still been pretty simple...

A Quilting Chick - 365-2017-4

I'm going to love that quilt.  Speaking of love....this Adventurously Epic Sampler quilt is going to be fabulous!!  Here's the block from last week...

A Quilting Chick - AES17-3

The silver highlights?!?  I know it's going to take a while to finish (2 years) but I'm already really enjoying it and know this will look fantastic on my bed! :)

Yesterday, I did my block for the 52 Weeks with the Quilter's Planner being hosted by Gnome Angel.  If you're making this block, there are a few things to keep in mind:
  1. The subcut directions for white state 2-1/4" squares and 2-1/2" squares.  But you're subcutting from a 1-1/2" strip so the squares needs to be disregarded.  They'll be rectangles.
  2. Also in the same section, the 1-1/2" x 2-1/4" is wrong.  They should be 1-1/2" x 2".  
  3. Watch your 1/4" seams.  There are, what, 10 seams in a row?  If they are off, even by a little, you'll be having trouble when joining them.
Here's my block:

I really like how it turned out.

And, in between all the rest of my sewing this week, I got another 15 stars put together for the Stargyle Quilt!

The rest of the blocks are pinned and next to the sewing machine to continue their role as leaders/enders.

Hopefully I'll be able to share my project for Free Spirit soon.  I'm really excited about it. :)

I love those stars, I want to do a star quilt. I'm trying to get caught up on some of my ufo's before I start another quilt though.
