Dancing Stars Quilt-Along

Posted on December 20th, by Amy in quilt-along. 49 comments

I’ve been thinking about the coming year, and how to make the most of this space with all of you!

I’ll be starting the new year off with a Quilt-Along right here, and in the Old Red Barn Co. Quilt Along group on Flickr.  It’s a great place to connect with other quilters!

This is a paper-pieced block, and a lot of fun to make.  I’ve made this block a number of times, and it’s still a favorite!

Right now I’m working out size options, (in case you aren’t ready to make 98 blocks), and fabric requirements.  It’s a great scrap quilt, so don’t worry if you’ve put yourself on a fabric diet, you can still join in the fun!

What do you think?

I hope you will join us!  For now grab a button, and check back soon!

    I’m in! I’ve always wanted to learn paper piecing and I’ve made two quilts along with you already. You’re a great teacher and I’ve learned lots from you both times. This should really add to my skill set. Thanks Amy!

    Since I messed up my shoulder and can’t rotary cut (but can paper piece) this looks to be totally up my alley! Thanks for hosting!

    I haven’t paper pieced in years. This might just be perfect to get me going again.

    I love the Dancing Stars quilt with all those equilateral triangles, but I hate paper piecing! Can’t it be pieced without using a foundation?

    Wow this paper piecing looks beautiful! I’ve not tried it before. I so love the color choices! Thanks for sharing and the nice photography. You might enjoy my quilt with vintage hankies, just go to the search box on “Quilted Nights…”

    OOOoooooo COOL quilt, I think I’d like to maybe play, am not real fond of PP but sometimes a great design is more important than how it gets done and this is a CUTE scrap quilt so I may have to force myself to PP :D!!
