Star A Day FINAL update

Today I won’t show you what is ON my design wall because its empty. But I have something to show that came OFF my design wall yesterday.183On Oct 31, 2014 I finished my final star! This one, right here. 176It was 1:28 pm when I cut my thread, spread it out in front of me, and said, “You, my pretty, are the last one!” Whew! I did it! I made 365 stars in one year – enough to make a quilt big enough to sleep under.

This post officially concludes my Star a Day Challenge.

What’s next, you ask? How about a Lucy Boston quilt? Here’s my first block. I was so eager to start it that I stitched this block the same evening that I finished the last little star! Why stop when you’re on a roll, right?184And in case you are wondering, NO, I will not be making a block a day! But do you suppose I could finish it in just one year?185(2)

  1. Color me impressed! You finished the last star and 3 days later the whole quilt is pieced AND quilted?? Are you paper piecing the Lucy Boston, or just piecing? I’ve been doing some hexies, and I think it takes me longer to baste to the paper than to piece them, so I just piece them.

  2. Oh my goodness….your star quilt is absolutely stunning! A block a day for a whole year is an amazing accomplishment. The new block is pretty outstanding too!
