Blogger's Quilt Festival - Fall 2012

Amy's Creative Side


Today I'm linking up one of my latest quilts to the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side.

Back in March, I was the Queen Bee for Hive #1 over at Stash Bee.  I asked all of my bee hive mates to make me a scrappy patriotic paper pieced bordered star.  Over 20 bordered star blocks were received and I was able to make two quilts to be donated to Quilts of Valor

  8. I requested star blocks for August in my FQR bee and several of us made this block. Not everyone liked the paper piecing but I love the accuracy. Lovely quilt.

  10. Oh my gosh Cindy, that quilt is spectacular! I had to show it to my husband because he grew up in the military and is crazy patriotic. Fantastic work by you and your bee's!
