Long time comin'

I had hoped that I would have more energy to work while I have the house trailer to myself, but unfortunately that was not the case today.   After a slow start to the day and still a much needed nap, I was able to muster some energy and get to work sewing. 

I am a quilter who always has a TON of UFO’s.  Sifting through half-done projects, I decided to start yet another one.  I decided to pull out a selection of fabric that I had purchased almost exactly a year ago and get to work on the quilt that I had designed with that line in mind.  These fabrics and this quilt have been on my mind for quite some time, so this one has certainly been a long time coming.

The fabrics are from the “Serenity” line by Heather Mulder Peterson.  I absolutely love her designs! I have a good collection of her books and have really enjoyed every line of fabric she has put out for Henry Glass & Co.  “Serenity” is by far my favorite of her fabric lines though.  The colors are right up my alley – blues, browns, greens, and creams.  Perfect for my home d├ęcor! 

The star block is a traditional block that has been around for quite some time and it is relatively simple to put together.  I’m surprised that I have never made this block before.  I understand its construction, I’ve seen it used in many different ways, but I’ve never put one together.  I thought it was about time.

The “Serenity” fabrics look great in this block.  I can’t wait to get my blocks finished and see them with their sashing, cornerstones, and borders.  I think it is going to be a great throw quilt.  Time to get to work!
