The rules of this challenge are as follows: Choose a quilt from one of the Blended Quilt books written by Marsha McCloskey and Sharon Evans Yenter of In The Beginning. Any quilt may be chosen and any fabric may be used. The challenge will run from December 1 through the last Monday in January. We four fine quilty ladies are supposed to have our quilts done by then. Not sure if there is a prize for finishing on time, but you never know in the land of blog.
This is the book I have chosen my quilt from. It is no longer in print, but some of the best designs have been republished in The Best of Blended Quilts.
And what is a blended quilt, you ask? Here is an excerpt from a page in the Blended Quilts book that explains it very well.
This is the pattern I have chosen to do.
Here is the fabric I am using for the stars. This collection is from Sentimental Studios and it is called Windsor. I found it about a year or so ago and fell in love with it.
The large pieces are for the backgrounds, borders, backing and binding.
Now I have to get busy and get it cut out and get started. I certainly don't want to be left in the dust, so to speak.
