Seeing stars...again

This has been on my UFO list for ..... 7 years now.... I have spurts of working on it, and then it gets relegated to the shelf again. It is a "scrap" quilt made entirely of bought fabrics. Yes, the irony is not lost on me :)  I saw the pattern in a scrap quilt book and fell in love. At the time I really liked feedsack fabrics, and wanted to make a project in 30's repro fabrics and so the Texas star project started. Each star (400+ required for the completed project) and row is hand-pieced which makes it a very portable project.

2013 is the Year of the UFO for me, and having completed 3 UFO's so far I decided it was time to grab this Texas bull by the horns. This is the maths - I have 88 stars left to assemble and can average 2 stars pr day.
I have 9 rows left to assemble and add to the top. It takes me a week to assemble a row and to attach it.

I can do this!!


  1. Oh that is a stunning quilt top! And only 88 stars to go from more than 400 - can't wait to see it finished. I really like 30's reproduction fabrics too.

  2. Thank you Jeneta, It's nice to feel that I am on the homerun... almost... with this one!

  3. Go Mari! You can do this, banish those UFOs once and for all :)
