Star Bright Table Topper

Every year my talented sister takes our family pictures (which always turn out awesome). And every year, I make her a table topper quilt.  It’s a good swap and we both end up happy.  I’m pretty excited about this year’s quilt.

My sister wanted a star quilt, so I came up with this pattern to show off all the cute fabrics.  The turquoise and gray are so striking together.

She did a great job picking out the fabrics.  And since she gave me all the scraps, I may have to make a little something for me too!

It’s a great day!

Cooler weather is finally coming to the southwest!  Leaves are starting to show color and I’m pulling out my pants and sweaters. AND… I finished two quilt tops! Wahoo!

I made not one, but two churn dash quilts!  I’m waiting for the backing fabric to come in the mail before quilting, then more pictures will follow.

ALSO, I received this lovely bundle in the mail today….

The fabric is “Boathouse” by Sweetwater.  I will be using this fat quarter bundle for a block of the month quilt I’m starting soon.  I’m super excited about the pattern, so if you are interested, start collecting your fabric!

Also, one last bit of news.  I have finally started an Instagram account.  I know, I’m a little (a lot) behind the times, but I get there eventually.  So, if you want to follow me on Instagram, just look for SewStormy.

See,  I told you it was a good day!
