pink and red Dotty Stars

I cranked out two more Dotty Stars this week! Pink and red for Valentine's Day :)


I wish I could tell you that the time to make each block has significantly decreased, but that just isn't so. Maybe I'm down to 2.5 hours each, but the cutting just takes forever!

Note the cupcake and french words fabric in the center squares of this pink block :)


Can you find the fried eggs and Mary Engelbreit cherries in this red one?


It's been so fun to revisit old favorite fabrics while making these blocks. Even the littlest triangle reminds me of something else I've enjoyed sewing.

Progress so far - 4 down, 5 to go!


The pattern is available for free download from the Better Homes and Gardens All People Quilt site here. C'mon, you know you wanna make some, too!

  3. Shelley, these are so cute! Interestingly, I just tore this pattern out of a magazine while purging my sewing closet. I can't wait to see this finished!

  4. I love your blocks. You did so well with your color value. I have a sampler quilt here http://delilahthomas.blogspot.com/2010/02/little-more.html and boy was it time consuming (for me anyway) trying to decided what fabrics to use where. you can get a completely different look depending on where you place your lights, mediums and darks fabric.
