Oh My Stars: Quilt Progress

by Julie Hirt

Hope you enjoyed your holidays and got to spend a lot of time with family and friends.  I’ve been quiet due to holiday sewing but I’m back in the swing of things.

My nephew will be getting a ‘big boy’ bed in the next few weeks and I to make him a twin size quilt.  I’ve decided on a star quilt using 3 star patterns from the Oh My Stars! QAL.

The Diamond Heart

Chevron Star stars (6)

And the Quattro Stagioni Star, which I think is my favorite to make.

I’m using a mix of blue fabrics for the stars and black and white prints for the background.

I was able to get all of these made today – I LOVE VACATION!   They are 12″ blocks so I’m thinking 30 blocks (5 by 6) will be big enough for toddler in a twin bed.


Yesterday my husband and I did a little hunting at River Market Antiques.  It’s a large, awesome, 4 story building that is insane for treasure-hunting in downtown KC.  I picked up a vintage feedsack quilt top and aran afghan. I’ll definitely be sharing some pictures of those.

Oh! I also made my brother a t-shirt quilt for Christmas. It was all of his USMC shirts and cammies from his military years. I’m really happy with how it turned out.  No good pictures yet because of the snowy mess (and it was a secret), but I want to post about that soon.

Enjoy your New Year’s Eve and be safe!
