WIP Wednesday #4 and QAL Week #4

I have the week off work so I’ve been able to play in my studio a lot more than I normally would. This is week four of the Star Surround Quilt-a-long (QAL) and this week I had to cut and piece 192 flying geese. Here are mine all pressed and ready to go.  The past two weeks I have finished my assignments with just hours to spare before the deadline.   This week I am finished 4 days early…..yeah me!!!  Next week we start assembling our first block.


I also started working on Leftovers II.  I had so many left over 1-1/2″ wide strips of fabric from my Blue Odyssey Quilt so I came up with a new quilt design to utilize a few of them.  It will have thirty five 6×6 blocks of 1 inch squares and twenty four 3×3 blocks of 1 inch squares set on point and then a border of 1×1 inch squares.  I haven’t decided if my background will be a bright white kona solid or a deep black.  I’ve ordered both from my local quilt store and I will make my decision once I can lay out my blocks and see which one makes it ‘sing’.

  1. And they look fantastic!! Great job on getting them all done and so early 🙂 I can’t wait to see yours all come together 🙂

  2. Love the fabrics for your Star Surround quilt. Whatever that yellow and black print is on the left in the second row… it looks amazing.

    I got mine done days early this week too (instead of sneaking in just barely under the wire!), but that’s because I had the long weekend off work!
