Stars in her eyes... is that a good name??

Three things to be happy about:
(1) clocks with pendulums
(2) coffee cups with a logo
(3) Olympic winners... U-S-A!  U-S-A!!

I haven't watched every event but I don't think we're doing too bad, the ballroom skaters were simply beautiful!

So here's the completed Sue and stars top, minus one more border:

I used more of the crumb blocks to cut  the 2-1/2" cornerstones, alternated with some pretty blue and gold fabric from my stash.

The blue fabric is called Cherry Jubilee by Mary Lou Weidman (Bernartex).  I don't know how long I've had it or if it's still available, but I think it's perfect for the inner border.  Those pieces are all I had left after cutting the strips -  I can get a few 2-1/2" squares, then that fabric is history!


The cornerstones look pretty good!  Doesn't it feel great when you can make a quilt not only from stash, but a lot of it is scraps?  The only yardage was the blue border fabric.  

Now I have to decide what to do for the outer border, probably something in a dark gold, I'll shake my stash to see what falls out!

If you head on over to see Felicia at The Slow Quilter, she's having a birthday giveaway!  Everybody can use a jelly roll, you just might be the lucky winner.

Have a great day, do something creative and fun... sew forth and sew on til later!


  1. This is so cute! Well done and love all the crumb goodness mixed in.

  2. I love the way this came together -- it is just darling. Can't wait to see what you come up with for the last border/ My first thought was something red, but then, red is my usual "go to" color. I consider red a neutral.

  3. HI!!!! Your quilt is wonderful!!!! Love it!!!!! Love your selfie too!!!! You are very cheerful and fun!!!!
    Thank You

  4. looks great. I love it when I can use up what I have instead of buying stuff.

  5. Stars in Her Eyes.....I love it! This came out very cute. And I like the selfie, too. I'm waving at you and saying "Hi, Linda".

  6. Linda, this is darling. Can't wait to see it quilted and all done.

  7. Thanks for the Selfie!!!!
    I have been drooling over your Sunbonnet Sues since you first showed them. I am wondering if I could sweet talk you into cutting me some out if I send you fabric? Of course I am willing to pay a fee and return shipping.

  8. Those are tiny crumbles!!! I'm working on one that has bigger ones~ :) hugs~ I really like your star pattern~!

  9. I love it! It's a completely different rendition of Sunbonnet Sue than I've seen before and it's just great!
