Hello Everyone and welcome back! 

Since March is the beginning of a new month, I find it fitting to start a new Challenge Quilt.  The quilt is called Oh, My Stars! and will consist of 48 blocks.  I will be posting a block a week until we finish the top.  I have chosen the blocks from Block Base by EQ and from quilterscache.com, and of course, they are all stars in one form or another and should measure 6.5 inches squared.

Here is an idea of how the 48 blocks will be used:

Ten blocks will be used only once.

Eight blocks will be used twice.

Four blocks will be used three times.

And two blocks will be used four times.  That equals 48 blocks.

The quilt top will measure 122 x 92.

FABRIC REQUIREMENTS:  Will be given with each block that we make as we go along.  You will need a variety of light, medium and dark colors in any color wave that you please.  Mine will be scrappy in a mix of red, brown, green, gold, yellow, blue, etc, mostly earth colors.

CLUE #1:  The first block can be made from three 10 inch squares of a light, a medium, and a dark color.

Come back on Saturday, March 2 and I will have the first block ready and posted with directions. Most of these can be found either at quilterscache.com or in Block Base.  If there is a different name for it and you have trouble finding it, I will provide another name that you might find it under.

Thank you for playing along!



About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.

    You really make it appear really easy together with your presentation however I find this topic to
    be really one thing that I believe I would never understand.
    It sort of feels too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I am taking a look ahead on your subsequent post, I’ll attempt to get the hang of it!
