Slow and Steady

Making progress on a UFO. This was a block of the month I started alittle over a year ago. That's when we sold our house and I had to pack up and move. I have made several quilts since moving, but never went back to this quilt. Thanks to Susan I joined her UFO bust this year. This is on my list. All of the stars are finished and I'm now working on the sashing and borders. The star blocks are 16" finished, sashing is 6" finished. This is going to be one big quilt.

I love the leaves and fall colors. All of the star points are the same, but each one has a different middle. I plan on using this quilt on my bed next fall. I hope to have the top finished this weekend.

I bought a new book, City Quilts, and there are a few quilts in the book that I want to make.

Expecting more snow tomorrow, so maybe I will get off from work early. Have more time to quilt.


  1. ooh, I'd love to take a look at your copy of City Quilts the next time we get together!!

  2. It's beautiful, Diane. I love love love fall fabrics and colors.
    BTW, the link that you posted on Mr. Linky has a problem. It takes me to some kind of a survey instead of your blog. You might want to check it. Have a great weekend.

  3. Your quilt is gorgeous!

  4. Love the stars. How are you doing your y-seams? I have a group that has y-seams as the challenge for this month and I'm getting all kinds of things done by avoiding those darned y-seams!! Your's look awesome!

  5. Hi, I popped over from Blackberry Creek (ditto on the address linky...I think blogspot is spelled wrong). Congrats on doing some on your big project! It will be beautiful!
