ALYOF-January finish

Hello! Am I still here?

Yup! Slow and steady wins me a goal for the month.

I have 14 blocks finished for the baby's star sampler crib quilt. Now I just have to decide which ones to go in the final quilt. 

Um, not quite right.

Now I switched Crossed Diamonds for the Starshine. Still not quite.

I asked my husband when he came home from the fire station, and he really likes the Crossed Diamonds. It's different than the others, kinda catchy-looking, with a vintage vibe (vintage Maltese Cross!)

So now I have two extra blocks....Pat Sloan's Mystery BOM January block, and the Weathervane. My hubby thought the Weathervane looked too much like the other blocks with the sawtooth stars.

And you can see that I've already put sashing rows together, too, one night this past week. So now, I'm finally ready to assemble the quilt top.


  1. Beautiful blocks and the colors are gorgeous. Great finish.

  2. This is going to be one gorgeous baby quilt, Rachell. Love all your blocks and the fabrics you chose. Nice work!
