stars and honey for large quilts BQF

 stars and honey ~ a very special quilt

i was inspired by liesl made's stripey lone star i doubled the block size and used muslin foundation instead of paper piecing
each 28'  block came together beautifully xo more here on the beginnings of this quilt

the last few blocks traveled to mexico with me last winter along with esther [my 1960 featherweight]

i stitched a few blocks old school on our beautiful patio in PV ~ no mats ~ no rotary cutters ~ no iron ~  it was totally worth carrying esther on the flight xo

this quilt was a labour of LOVE taking over a year to complete xo

9 blocks were made with borders to complete this queensize quilt and many photos were taken during this time xo

definitely recommend pressing those seams OPEN and using wider stripe near the center...

i machine quilted stars and honey with honeycomb by dave hudson

and stamped a label for them special xo

LOVE LOVE LOVE everything about this finish xo

our family cat pepper even got in on this shot

thank you for stopping by...i love to share my favorite quilts with the BQF...a big thank you to amy for organizing this fun and inspiring festival of QUILTS QUILTS and MORE QUILTS !! xo pam

my happy quilt for roygbiv BQF

inspiration came from redpepperquilts but  the fabric came completely from MY stash xo

it was sewing room only during the construction of this beauty xo xo

i used the easy peasy hst method from missouriquiltcompany ~ thanks eva, it was such a fun quilt to make xo

this method gives you perfect hst's every time with no trimming required so don't be afraid of all those bias edges  ~  i made another quilt with briar rose using the same method...see the other here
i machine quilted it with belly bop by apricot moon designs ~ just saying belly bop makes me so happy !

i found this vintage reproduction  simplicity pattern fabric for the binding at joannes

it finished into a very large cuddle quilt complete w a flannel back and i named her HAPPY with a stamped label  xo
thanks for visiting from the BQF ....i LOVE participating...i so enjoy this blog hop full of inspiration.
and i thank amy for organizing this wonderful affair twice a year ~ hope you have time to visit more of  this wonderful festival and get inspired too ! xoxox pam

a quiet weekend and some liberty

we drove east on saturday for an adventure

we stopped  at beckler river for a visit ... # 4 is a perfect spot for future camping xo

we turned around at levenworth ~ after having a bite to eat  xo

and sunday  i played w a new idea for my liberty spools quilt ~ i am thinking text fabric and kona snow now...

and i spy a face in the liberty fabric in the top middle....can u see it?

this was my original plan ~ various spool tops and a linen backround ~ but i am not loving these so i think they will become a small project....and i won't lie ~ this is a 6 and 3/4 " block and these teeny tiny hst's make me crazy xo
                                                           happy monday xo pam
