Fat Quarter Star Quilt-along

Well, I am finally getting around to the 4th block. I reached in last night and pulled out three new fabric choices.

I took a few minutes to decide which fabric I wanted for the center block and then I began cutting. I even laid the pieces out to form the block. By then it was late so I left it for tonight.

So tell me. How in the world can it take two hours to sew together one little block?

As Kelsey would say "Seriously, that's ridiculous."

But I do like how the block turned out.

No sewing for me tomorrow. Kelsey, Debby (one of my sisters) and I are going to see the Breaking Dawn, the latest in the Twilight Series. Since I'll be in Fort Smith (40 miles away) I really need to get some groceries. I hope that by 9 o'clock I am not too tired. But, if I am, that's okay.

Tomorrow is another day.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. have fun - and yes it has taken me forever to finish a block - I seem to recall the Star Crazy quilt making so many mistakes that I actually threw away a star block after working on it for half the day and making so many mistakes that I just plain tossed it and then made it the next day in under an hour!

  2. Your fabric choices look so nice. Your block turned out beautiful!

  3. Your blocks are all turning out so great -- it kills me that you're reaching in and *blindly* picking your fabrics!!! Have a blast at the movie -- my daughter, daughter-in-law and a group of their friends went to the opening showing at midnight last night! :)
