The Star Surround QAL

from Happy Quilting

I need another project like I need a hole in the head!!  Sew, I've decided to join a quilt along!

Melissa at Happy Quilting is hosting a QAL using her new Star Surround block.  Isn't it pretty?

She has lots of block size options and project size options.  I am making two 16" blocks to use as pillow tops with some of the batiks that bloggy friend Leona sent me a couple weeks ago.

It's evening, these colors aren't quite right.
While coming home from dropping DS off at my mom's house, I stopped in at The Wooden Spool in Effingham, IL.  The store has a large selection of solids from various manufacturers.  This brown is called "bison" from Timeless Treasures.

I had pulled a darker brown batik from my stash but it wasn't quite right.  Any excuse to buy some more fabric!  Check out what other quilters are quilting along over at Melissa's.  Did I mention there will be prizes?


  1. Great fabric choice! These colors will make really pretty pillow tops. : )

  2. Love the colours! These are going to be very pretty pillows. :-)

  3. I love those colours. I never thought of going to my batik bin, I'll have to remember that for the next one!

  4. These are going to be so pretty!! The brown will so pop!!

  5. I laughed when I read the first line of this post as I though exactly the same thing when I saw this quiltalong! Still I had to join in too - I think its because its such a lovely design. I'm making the 4x4 version of the 16" blocks. Looking forward to starting to put it all together.
