Challenge Quilt Beginning

Today is the day we will start our challenge out of the 19th-Century Patchwork Divas’ Treasury of Quilts Book.  Lori and I chose to work on the Delectable Feathered Star quilt and have made it into a 6 month challenge that will end with a wonderful quilt top finished in August.  We had a bit of a problem this morning, though, when we realized that our shipment of books won't be here until Thursday.  I have my colors picked out, so will show them to you today.  Thursday when I get the book I will start to cut for the blocks and will post then.

Mine will be quite scrappy, so I can use some new fabrics that just came in!  I had quite a few background pieces in the back room that needed to find a project and they look great.  I chose a cream background color with reds and browns for the stars.  I remember reading that there were accent prints, so the last picture shows some of the colors I picked for that.

I hope this gets you excited to get yours cut up and sewn, I know that I'm itching to cut these gorgeous prints.

Until Thursday,

Mandy
