Hello Friends! How are you doing in this post-Christmas week? I am back to a rigid work schedule post-Christmas. Let’s see, I have been piecing, designing and pattern-writing since we got back from our Christmas vacation — and enjoying our Christmas still. I am baking cookies again with Miss Baby tomorrow.
I showed you a couple of weeks ago my Migration quilt that is featured in American Patchwork & Quilting’s 2015 calendar. Click here for more information on Migration. Click here to purchase the calendar.
I had mentioned that I have another quilt (a star quilt!) featured in the same calendar… and here it is!

This is a scrappy star quilt, made with happy scraps from my stash – mostly leftovers (99.5%) from my magazine feature projects. Looking at this quilt is like looking at all my magazine quilts coming together to be commemorated in one single quilt. So, for me it is a very special quilt.
See these little squares in the block center? They finish at 1″. I used a little trick to chase away the wonkiness (at least most of it) when piecing multiple tiny patches. Click here to read my tutorial.
One thing worth mentioning is that I was very glad to be able to use a little piece of fabric I had leftover from my VERY FIRST quilt — see that carrots on green patch in the picture above? Yeap, that’s the backing I used for my first quilt.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you will not only have a happy year in 2015, but a joyful one as well! Hugs to you all!
Now curious mind wants to know if you still have leftover fabric(s) from your first quilt. Do tell!!!
