Lucky Stars QAL! Join us!!

 The day has finally arrived! Okay, so maybe you haven't been waiting, but Megan and I have worked hard on these quilts and our Lucky Stars Quilt-A-Long, we really hope you will join us!


We created our quilts from the beautiful Happy Go Lucky fabric line from Bonnie and Camille, for Moda fabrics. We thought it would be fun to use the same fabric line and pattern but show how different they can look in different colorways!  What do you think??


Heathers Lucky Stars quilt finish.  LOVE it! I worked hard the last week!


We've both fallen madly in the love with this pattern (and with each other's quilts).  There's already discussion of switching at some point.


Megan's Lucky Stars quilt finish. Love the navy background. Makes it all "pop!"


One of our sponsors, Christa Quilts has put together Lucky Stars Starter Kits for those of you wishing to quilt along. Each kit contains 1 Jelly Roll plus 1 Layer Cake of Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie and Camille. She's offering them at a special price of just $74.95 which includes free US shipping (discounted int'l shipping)!

I am in! I have a layer cake, just need a jelly roll and some extra fabric. This has really given me the quilt boost I needed. Haven't sewn for about 3 months. Thank you, Thank you.

Catherine said...

I'd love to try (your quilts are BEAUTIFUL), but have a question. I've only made one quilt and it was super basic (just stripes). What skill level would you rate this quilt? Is it something that a beginner would have luck with or do you think it would be too challenging?

Wendy said...

Oh, also meant to ask how big is this quilt??

Marcia W. said...

Beautiful quilts - need to see where I stand on committments because there are multiple qals that I really really want to attempt ... but with terminal cancer I need to set boundaries on what I tackle.

I'm confused; Do we get cutting instructions today or do we need to sign up somewhere else?

Elizabeth Petersen said...

Are the cutting instructions posted somewhere?
