It’s Done!

I finally have the Kansas City Star 2013 block of the month quilt top done!

KC star BOM quilt

Yea!  And just in time for the new block of the month although I’m not sure if I’m going to do it.  I’m definitely ready to move on to a new project.  I’m putting this quilt top away in hopes that someday soon I’ll have my own long arm machine to finish it with.  I’m probably kidding myself since I’ll have 2 kids in college this fall BUT a girl can always dream.  When I do get my own machine, I’ll have lots of tops to practice on.

My next project is a baby quilt or several.  I always get asked if I have some to sell so I thought that would be a fun project.  I just picked out some fabrics and can’t wait to get started…

  1. Are you starting the New Kansas City Star pattern? I downloaded block 1. I didn’t realize that I could access online.

    1. I don’t think so. It’s a cool quilt and I have a grandfather who was in WWI but I hate applique and I have so much going on this year with moving and all that. I didn’t realize it could be accessed from online until just a couple months ago. Apparently you can buy previous year’s patterns also. So do you think you’ll do it? My daughter suggested I just do the blocks and not add the applique but I’m not sure how that would look.

  2. Moving? Where your husband works? Where will Ilsa go to college? Did you see that Elina King was accepted at West Point?
    I’d like to put the quilt on my to do list. You know me – nothing by hand! I always hate the look when I zigzag my applique. I recently saw some pieces someone created with the Edyta Star patterns. They were raw edge. I’m going to try that.
    I’ve pulled several things to start this year, but haven’t even started cutting. I did finish my last Aby quilt (Italian Villa) so I feel ready to start new projects. I need everything prepped so that if I have a little time, I have something to sew.
    I agree with your daughter. If you want, do the quilt and add some sort of sashing instead of the applique.
