I love seeing the projects that you take off with!
And seeing these photos in my inbox made me smile, and I love sharing them with you too – so if you have made quilts from my designs or inspired by something you have seen here, please share your photos with me!
Debbie sent these along, with the following:
I just wanted to share two pics of our Maverick Stars quilts that our group, the Preble County Stitchers in Preble County, Ohio, made as a donation quilt for the Potter orphanage in Indiana.
I showed the ladies how to make your Maverick Stars and they just took off. For each block they donated for the quilt, I gave them a chance on prizes. We had so much fun and used so many small pieces.Aren’t these great?
They always kidded me because I wanted their tiny scraps; now, they're keeping them for themselves. LOL.
To make the quilt more interesting, I added a few large (12") Maverick Stars; I just used 4 1/2 inch squares instead of 2 1/2 inch squares. Our group now understand how much you inspire all of us.
Thanks for offering the pattern for free.
Check out this one:
That uses up a LOT of scraps!!
Thanks Debbie for sending along the photos, what fun quilts!
You can find the basic tutorial for Maverick Stars under the Free Patterns tab at the top of the blog.
I am a nervous auntie.
My sister Joy went in to deliver baby Emery last night around 9pm EST. I hardly slept. I tossed, I turned, I kept checking my phone for messages --
I have heard nothing!
I know that babies take their own sweet time to get here. I know that with today’s technology we are used to INSTANT information. I know that this precious sweet family may want some bonding time together before they blast it all over facebook that Emery is here, but I’m still a nervous auntie!
More info will come as I know more – maybe by Quilt-Cam tonight we’ll have word! 9pm Eastern. Be here!
I’m headed out to lunch with my friend Lisa today ---new place in Winston that I’ve never been to before called the Porch. There my be food pictures to follow!
See you tonight ---
