Dancing Stars Quilt Top!

By |June 18th, 2013|quilt-along, work in progress|10 Comments

Last week I finished all my Dancing Stars blocks and was so excited to put them together into a top.

It took me a couple nights of intense sewing (the best kind, right?) and multiple episodes of Parenthood on Netflix – I have a quilt top!

98 blocks 6″ each, set on point; the top measures 60″ […]

I’m just beginning the 68 remaining blocks, but hopeful that I can […]

The Road to Oklahoma is a simple block of squares and half square triangles, and when stacked create […]
