Victoria's Block and a Star For April!

Really loved the challenge of this block, Victoria! I love to paper-piece, but I had never done a triangle before. I absolutely love learning new quilting skills. Can't wait to see this festive quilt come together!

{And this is our April block!}

I'm using my month to make a quilt for my daughter. She's 13 and really good at it. She is one of the most creative, intelligent and talented people I know and right now she is full of self-doubt and teenage angst. I love the idea of all of you making her quilt along with me! All of you creating these blocks with your hands, with your hearts, with your creativity - well, it's a sentiment that I hope will translate into a great, big hug for my sweet girl.

I let her pick the fabrics and the block. She picked almost all Jennifer Paganelli fabrics which made me incredibly giddy since Jennifer is one of my favorite fabric designers!

I'm waiting on the white linen I ordered to get here. As soon as it does, I'll get it cut and get your packages to you! I'll post the block tutorial  in a week or so.


  1. How fun, Andie! I love making wonky stars and making it for your sweet girl will be so great!

  2. That is a nice idea to make one for your daughter. The star block looks nice and bright.

  3. GASP! JP FABRICS! A girl after my own heart! I'm seeing JP Tuesday... You can bet I'll be gushing all over about her... can't wit to create for you and your daughter!
