I’m working block by block on a quilt for my Mom. I’m feeling quite a bit of guilt in that I haven’t made anything for my mom (or dad really). Every time she comes to visit, she compliments me on projects I’m working on and admires my completed quilts. She’s the one who taught me to sew, and I haven’t made her anything.
I really like paper pieced star blocks. I just think that they are really really pretty. And I know that my mom will love the finished quilt.
Here are the two I made so far, using two patterns from Fresh Lemon Quilt’s Solstice Star Series. Each star takes about an evening to make, and I’m just chugging along.
