Spangled Stars QAL top and Other's Quilts

I've been quilting away, not on my own quilts, but for others.
First this week, was this beauty made by my sister-in-law.

She's made small quilts, and this is one is queen size! Kudos to her for such a large project! She chose really pretty fabrics, and a larger version of the panto Happy Times in Glide cornflower yellow thread for the quilting.

Such a beautiful quilt to adorn her bed!

Today, it was a guild charity quilt, this sweet little thing!

I slightly modified the panto Easy Peasy for the center, then did freehand scrolls, and e's and l's for the two borders.

I love how simple designs can make pretty quilts!

And I finished the piecing of my Spangled Stars QAL top.

I'm leaving it hanging on the design wall, seeking quilting inspiration. Just need to find backing fabric, then I can get this quilted.

Speaking of backing fabric, I'm still searching for that for the t-shirt quilts. Each needs around 3 yards, or they can be squeezed onto a wide back. I'll be shop hopping this weekend, so hope to find something.

But back to the Spangled Stars QAL. Tomorrow I'll be posting the linkup for posting pictures of the completed tops. The tops don't need to be quilted to be eligible for the grand prize, they just need to be a completed top. I can't wait to see everyone's work! Until then,

Happy Quilting!


  1. Love the quilt your sister-in-law made. The black and yellow are great together.

  2. Hello, Love the black / white / yellow quilt too! Do you know the name of the pattern? Could it be Yellow Brick Road by Atkinson Designs?


Thank you so much for just made my day!
