WIP Wednesday: Rose Star Blocks 42 & 43

It seems like I've been at the sewing machine non-stop, but at least there is a rockin' quilt to show for it. I just finished quilting, so tomorrow's mission is to square and bind. Then I've got a fun project involving Peltex to work on. Holla!

I think I finished these blocks over a week ago. I am definitely behind on my goal pace for finishing these, but I'm not far off. 

I really need to get all of the blocks back up on the design wall and make some decisions about balancing out any outlying colors before I pick fabrics for the last six whole blocks and seven half blocks. 

I'm all worn out from being a quilting machine today, so I'm calling it a night. Get ready for a great Marine Den quilt reveal :-D I hope your WIPs are seeing some progress, too!

Happy Crafting!



  1. Love these. Actually I love all your rose star quilt blocks and think they will be an amazing quilt when you get to that point.

    Your soft-hued quilt will be lovely--I had to laugh at your comment about getting a photo before the sun disappeared. I was doing a little of that tonight, too!

    P.S. Added you to my Bloglovin' list.

  2. they are so beautiful, and every time I see them I am reminded about the fact that mine are languishing in a basket. I really must get on with them!

  3. They are stunning!! I am really looking forward to seeing how you'll put them together!

  4. I just love these more and more every time I see them. How are you going about getting the scrappy look? Using scraps? Or do you just randomly pick out some fabric for each one?

  5. I love the colours in your rose stars!

  6. I love these two, I love all your rose star blocks. I'm looking forward to seeing them all together.

  7. These are beautiful. Can't wait to see the finished product!

  8. Ummm that second one may be my favorite ever. Incredible, as usual ;)
