My friend Sherry the Quilting Bon Vivant dropped into the shop to see if she could grab some of this holiday fabric and to completely blow my mind with these stars.

They're from an American Jane pattern by Sandy Klop. Oh jeez, I just went and looked at her site, and she has some amazing patterns there, along with the Sowing Seeds quilt Sherry's making. Why didn't I see these quilts at market? Did I just walk by waving on input overload? Check out this pattern!!! It comes in a kit!!! Wow. Just wow.

Sherry modestly said there are places that don't match up. That's when I turned and pinched her. No just kidding. I wouldn't pinch anyone. Intentionally.

Ok, more updates on things I'm actually sewing on soon. It's a busy weekend around here, so if I don't get right back it's because someone is turning TWENTY come Monday!

So have a happy weekend my peoples. Next week we'll all be talking turkey.

Okay...the stars are to die for and you can "accidently" pinch her from those of us that are challenged (yup that's me)when it comes to piecing such intricate designs! LOL...
Pass on a happy birthday from this blog-land "stranger" to the turning 20 someone.

Seriously, have a GREAT weekend!

Seriously... Sherry needs to be pinched. Twice. OMG... her stars are perfection and oh so beautiful. I'm working on something right now with the Holly Jolly too... but now my project looks like a stick figure compared to her Mona Lisa!

Sherry blocks are just stunning and I love her fabric choices! And Sandy's going to send me to the poor-house with all of her beautiful fabrics I'm always so drawn too.

Thanks for sharing Pam (and Sherry)! What great eye candy to start my day with! And pre-happy birthday to a someone-someone!!!

I just love Sandy's designs & fabrics. . . I have been collecting her sweet nostalgic fabrics for some time now. . . (& I just ordered some of her newest line) & this post may just break me to start to actually use them. . . (in all my free time!! lol!)
So pretty. She is an amazing lady. . .that one.

Thanks, Pam, for showcasing my star blocks. I forwarded this link to Sandy since everyone said such nice things about her. Five stars are done and there are 20 more to go ... guess this quilt won't be done by Christmas. :-) Happy Thanksgiving!

Love, love, love these! I have so much of this fabric, I love it! Did she use charm squares or a jelly roll? I just finished making a few dozen yo-yo's out of the charm packs to make a garland for the tree, they are so cute! I may have to come buy more fabric now though so that I can make these stars in all my spare time! : ) See you soon!

Hey Pam ... your friend Linda came in the store this afternoon and she brought Joanie and said you'd know who that was. Anyway ... she wants you to get in the car and come to Minnesota. When it gets warm, of course. I gave her a link so she could see what you're up to. Rosebud
