DS QAL: Lessons 13 and 14, Blocks 9 and 22

Delightful Stars Quilt-Along

I’m playing catch up here for the last two lessons of our Delightful Stars Quilt-Along (DS QAL).

Last week was Lesson 13 and we pieced Block 9. This is one of my favourite star blocks. It would be an excellent choice for a scrappy quilt. Here’s my version:


We also joined blocks 9 and 2 together with a sashing strip. Here are mine:


For this week’s Lesson 14, we are making one of the easier blocks, #22. Here’s my version:


Next week’s block is a paper pieced and regular pieced block. Then we have a break week to end of the month of May.

Friendship Star Blocks

Here are the latest Friendship Star Blocks to arrive. I have received 37 to date. Thank you everyone, they are all so beautiful.




I also received a most wonderful package from Australia. Quilting friend Alex Gee, who was terrified of paper piecing, until I taught her how to do it in my tutorial … made me these awesome letters to go on the back of my delightful stars quilt. I am so proud of her for overcoming her “I hate paper piecing” fears and so thrilled to have these beautiful blocks for my quilt.
