Shirley's Star-a-day update...

These past few weeks I have received a few questions about the progress of Shirley's star-a-day quilt. Well, here are some updates...

Friday is the day Shirley sets aside for setting the 3" squares into place with the stars. To make the final piecing easy we have decided to make nine equal sized squares. Here are four of them ready to go!

 Place the four together and voila, aren't they neat little stars!

 Shirley is so organised that she has cut and prepared the remaining five months of star blocks... thats right, all the stars are cut for the rest of the year and ready to be pieced. Each star is packaged into its own bag with backgrounds included.

Lois is up to date too! Wow look at all those sweet fussy cut stars.

The Friday girls are having so much fun that the pressure is now on... what do we do for next year! I will need to keep thinking on that one!

Until next time,


  1. Wow, what fabulous work and such small stars too. Well done ladies.

  2. Wunderschön!!!
    Liebe Grüße Grit

  3. I'm impressed. Lovely stars by all.

  4. Thats a great idea for a group to do together. I love all those little stars :)
