Friendship Stars

Angie at Quilting on the Crescent got me interested Quilty 365.  Quilty Folk is encouraging us to make one circle block a day for 365 days.  I didn't wanted to make circle blocks. I have wanted to make friendship star blocks for a long time so I decided to do stars instead of circles.  I started sewing stars on November 10.  I now have 23 blocks.  My friend Norece is making Road to Tennessee blocks.
I hope you will go to Quilty 365 and be inspired to join in the fun.

I have made one lime rainbow block and it will probably be the only lime block this month.  I don't have lime fabrics and I don't have time to make rainbow blocks.  I am gathering ideas for the rainbow challenge 2016.  I have not decided what blocks I will be making.  

Last evening my quilt friends and I had our Christmas gathering.  I made each one of them a thread holder and filled it full of candy,

Here is the link to the tutorial to make these thread holders.  These are quick and easy gifts to make.

I need to finish a quilt for a young man who is going through cancer treatments.

Have a sew fun day.

  2. I like that you're making what you want but still keeping with the concept of making one a day. I'm actually working on a circle quilt, but it has nothing to do with Quilty 365. I have one more to Applique, then it gets packed away for the winter. Cute baskets! Love how you filled them with candy! The recipients will love them, too! XO

  11. It is a busy time of year. Glad you found time for one lime block, but even happier to hear that you are already thinking about next year. Love those candy filled thread catchers! So cute!

  13. The photos in your LINK just MIGHT be the help that I have been hoping for. I've had one of these Thread Holders on my sewing table for YEARS just waiting for me to complete it!!! Wish me luck!!

  14. That's a nice idea - making stars instead of circles. I'll be doing circles when I start at New Year, but may well make friendship stars in next year's Rainbow Challenge. I like your little baskets.

  15. Now there's a challenge - one block every day for 365 days - er, make that 366 days in 2016. Cute little thread holders. Good to hear you're thinking of a project for RSC 2016.

  16. Love friendship stars. So glad you made the one a day work for you. The stars are lovely. Baskets full of candy - yummy. I have one but I use it to hold thread, scissors and stick my needles in the sides. It fits right in my cup holder in the car for waiting in the car line =)

  18. I really like the Quilty 365 idea (do I need to start another project?), but what a great idea. Love your little thread catchers with candy, great idea. I too am thinking about what to do for next years Rainbow Scrap Challenge, maybe quilty dots.
