January was a busy month! A whirlwhind of adventure, work, and life… but we survived! As a member of do.Good stitches, I had to choose the block and color scheme. I went with the Autumn Star Block from Fresh Lemons Quilts, and it was amazing. I set a color scheme as “ocean” and included a few samples. It was really awesome to see everyone’s interpretation and watch the quilt come together piece by piece.

Here are all of the blocks that were sent to me, I think, and the ones that don’t show, have a setting on Flickr which doesn’t allow them to be used in the collage. But, you can click on the coordinating link below it and it should take you there.
Once I received all the blocks, around mid February, I started piecing it together immediately. I was really excited to do this quilt!
Then I hurried through basting and got started on quilting. I had a million ideas for this one, but ended up doing an intense quilting design over each block. I realized later on that I never got a great picture of the quilting. 😦
I’d say the quilting took me about 10 hours total. It really wasn’t as bad as I was expecting and I loved the outcome!
