A Peek At My Week

I got my flying geese done for the Star Surround Quilt Along
It was a lot of trimming.  
Last week I decided to enlarge the quilt by seven more blocks, 
going from nine to sixteen and this week while trimming, 
I wondered what I was thinking.

My piles are a bit messy, but overall I don't think they look too bad. 
I'm ready for tomorrow's step.  

I also finished up a couple of bee blocks. 
For me, its a bit early, but making string blocks is so messy, 
I wanted to get on it right away.

Two together, don't they look great?

I've only gotten about 15 inches of the binding done on this super large quilt. 
Its 91 3/4 X 100, so I've got a long way to go. 
I'd bettered get going!
 I have to have it done by the end of the month to meet my goal. 


Well, that's it for my week peek. 
I'm off to put a movie on and work on that binding : )

What have you been up to this week? 

Happy Quilting


  1. I can't wait to see this whole thing. The colours look gorgeous against the brown

  2. I love that star quilt with the brown background! Beautiful. Can't wait to see how your Star Surround comes together with that navy background.

  3. Stars are looking great and I love your strings!! Have fun binding!! :)

  4. Your geese look fantastic. And so fun that you are doing a larger one now :) Have fun this week, it is so exciting to get to be putting a part of the block together :) And congrats on the win :)
