I am just beginning the Sarah Fielke BOM.
This wonderful program began in February.
I'm a little late to the party - well sort of but not really!
5 years ago I did not make a Jubilee quilt to commemorate my 50th birthday.
I was pleasantly distracted that year by the upcoming birth of my first grandchild.
Today is my birthday and this is the quilt project I have chosen to mark the journey of my 55th year. I love piecework and applique and this quilt has both.
I am using a collection of Cotton Lawn fabrics, something I've never sewn with before. They have a beautiful hand/feel to them.
I'm sprinkling in a few batiks in shades of coral & pink because they work well with these thinner lawns. (and because I love this color combination)
We are to make a total of 24 Star blocks over the next 10 months.
I've chosen to make 6 each of the blocks shown below.
All of the fabrics are cut for these stars, just not sewn together yet.
If I manage to catch up and stay on task, I will have this quilt top completed 2 months before my next birthday.
every quilt tells a story....
