Pattern: Seeing Stars by Melissa Corry
Fabrics: Vintage Christmas by Bonnie and Camille
There are a few quilting blogs that I follow, Melissa Corry of Happy Quilting is one of my favorites! I have sewn a couple of her patterns and I think purchased just about every other one that are all on my wish list. She’s done a few quilt alongs over the past couple of years that have tempted me, but for one reason or another I decide to just watch and drool. Well, she’s starting a new one that I’ve decided to jump in and sew along. The toughest decision was what fabric did I want to use for my stars. I finally decided that since I was being brave and daring to sew this sew-along, I was going to finally cut into my Vintage Christmas and make me a Christmas quilt. Take a look at these colors, here’s the reds and aqua – the pictures I took at 5:30am in the basement don’t do them justice, believe me when I say the colors are beautiful!
Then there’s the pink/rose and greens:
And last, the silver and white. I’m debating using one of these for my background. Of course that would mean I need to buy some 🙂
Super excited, the individual steps will come out every Wednesday between now and the middle of October. I’m not too sure about the applique stars, I might end up replacing those with something else, but who knows, maybe I will be super brave and daring and give them a try also. So, for today, here’s my fabric and public accountability that I’m going to do this!
