Dec. 19 – Friendship Stars


Friendship Stars – 2006

This was a “pass-around” project involving 2 different quilt guilds.  I put the fabric I wanted used in a box and each month it was passed to a different person who made me 2 blocks from my fabric.  I did specify that I wanted star blocks and that I liked the ‘fussy cut” look.  I also suggested they used paper pieced stars and included a book, but that was optional.  Most people did do paper pieced stars using “fussy cut” to make them kaleidoscope. 


LOVE that Jinny Beyer border fabric!  Each block is quilted in a similar fashion but not identical. 


Many of the blocks include feathers and each setting triangle also has a feather spray.


TOMORROW’S TEASER:  Utility quilt… we’ve all got them, and I’m going to show them.  Some are ordinary, and some are special.  I’ll be sharing 3 utility quilts tomorrow.

Be blessed, and remember JESUS is the reason for this wonderful season!



  1. How many people participated in this quilt? It is extraordinary, and I love the feathering. I think that is my favorite stitch besides the small one (not sure of the name) you showed us on the wholecloth. Can't wait to see the utility quilts!

  2. HMM... I would have to go check, but I should have 24 different names. Good question!! I'll get back with you on that.


Thank you for visiting! I love comments... so thanks for taking the time to leave one.
