GO!™ for a Star Blog Hop Day 2 – more tutorials and giveaways

This is Day 2 of the GO!™ for a Star Blog Hop and Gene Black has a great post with two tutorials for blocks. And what a great quilt-I want to make this one too. So many quilts, so little time. . . .Here’s a photo–you must go over and visit.


And I got an email from Judy over at SewFunQuilts yesterday. She’s having a giveaway of pre-cuts. Judy has been cutting stars for the GO!™ for a Star QOV Challenge. I think I’m in love – her stars are so pretty – the fabric is just wonderful – and the price is right. Besides the giveaway, she’s offering sets of stars for $1.00 just to cover the cost of postage.


And one last little item – I’ve been working on updating the Patriotic Stars Machine Embroidery Set. It will be available in the web shop later today. But here’s a little preview. Just imagine what you can do with that set and some of Judy’s stars. And yes, if you’re making a QOV for this Challenge, send me an email and tell me the machine format you use and I’ll send you some of the designs to use in your quilt. The two designs below are great for plain fabric, but there are great edge designs for printed fabric like Judy’s stars.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

  1. Wow! What wonderful designs for these stars! I love them! I think both the printed and the embroideried star designs are great! I’m going to have to work on learning how to use my Janome embroidery machine a little faster!

  2. I love the theme of this quilt. I didn’t think of using my embroidery machine, and now I will.
