Stars revisited, Wee Bee quilts

Three things to be happy about:
(1) Cinnamon raisin toast
(2) the soft, cool feel of flour
(3) summer breezes in the fall

Hi everyone!

In the last post I did before taking my hiatus, I shared the little stars I was making for a community service quilt but I was undecided about the setting.  I decided to just use black and white sashing and cornerstones, to keep it simple and to get it finished - I figured the stars themselves had enough activity going on.

So here's how it turned out - I wasn't 100% satisfied, but I figured it was going to someone I didn't even know anyway, so no need to stress out over it.

Besides, this quilt just might make someone very happy!

I love sharing pictures of what my fellow bee members are up to, here are a few from last month's meeting.  Some are service quilts ...

from Shirley.

Our quilts went to female veterans; most of them had this label:  "This quilt was made out of appreciation and respect for your service to our country....Please accept this quilt with deepest gratitude."

Sandra modeled a jacket she made...

This from Sondra...

Service quilt from Lynora

Linda's cobblestone quilt

not sure whose this one is but it's pretty!

another one from Sondra using batiks...

and another one - a chevron.

Quilty eye candy is always fun to share, I love seeing what other people are working on.

Remember - if you're a U.S. resident and would like to own the crumb blocks in my giveaway, go HERE and leave a comment.  Tell me how you'd use crumb blocks, I need new ideas!

Sew forth and sew on til later...


  1. Oh, I remember the stars and I like how you did the sashing - great finish. What a great bunch of quilts - super eye candy from your group. I really love the last one - hmm, I have lots of scrap solids that would work.

  2. Stars are always close to my heart, and I love yours. The colors really sparkle against the black/white/red of the sashing and border.
    So much eye candy here that it's almost overwhelming - so many ideas to explore! I'm always in the mood to look at others' work.

  3. I really like Sandra's quilt, do you know what pattern that is? Thanks for any help Linda.

  4. Dang autocorrect! Sondra's quilt.

  5. I LOVE the stars! You tell Sandra if she ever tires of that jacket I'd be happy to give it a new home. I promise it would be loved.
