Size does matter...

So some of you already know I am participating in Melissa at Happy Quilting's Star Surround QAL. If you don't know anything about it, you can read my original blog post about it here and my weekly check-in here.

I am also making my quilt much larger than the largest block she has designed. So it's going to be 64"! I skipped ahead to next week a little because I just could stand not seeing the entire block all together so I then decided I would give some of you a sneak peek too...

star surround QAL

Please ignore big relish's room...it has the cleanest carpet since the dogs aren't really in there much.....BUT doesn't it look fun! I just laid out the pieces to see how it would look and the center star is the only part that is pieced. I might jump ahead before next week to piece it, but I am also trying to get the last 4 swoon blocks in this week as well. I was able to cut out the last 4 last night and hope to piece the rest of them this week. I am so excited to get both my Star Surround and Swoon tops finished! Yippie!

Happy Hump Day, Y'all!
Melissa

    1. Yay for summer QALs! I just hopped over to your blog and realized you have the Lucy's Crab Shack swoon! I love that fabric! I did big relish's nap mat in it and get to enjoy it all year long! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment!

  3. Your block/quilt looks great! I can see why you wanted to jump ahead and lay it all out. I have a few blocks of mine laid out now to see it all put together. Love your fabric choice.

  4. I love this idea of one huge block making up the quilt. The end result is so fabulous. I love how this is coming together.
