Fat Quarter Stars Quilt along

Well, I put that unexpected free day yesterday to very good use. The Batman quilt was loaded onto the machine, and, if I hadn't goofed on the backing, it would have been done. But, when I got to the end of the top, I'd run out of backing about 3 inches too soon. Oops. Now I have to take it off the machine, (am I ever glad have have zippers on it), sew up another strip of batman fabrics to add to the bottom of the backing, load it back on, (did I already say I'm glad I have zippers on it) and do the last bit of the quilting. (sigh) While I was waiting for the batting to relax after taking it out of the bag, I pieced together the first square of the Fat quarter stars quilt along 
and I like it. I like the way the small star seems to float in the centre of the large one. If all the stars are like this one, it will be quite a lovely quilt. And now, I have to run and get ready for work.


  1. Love your fabrics and it is a beautiful block! I posted mine on the Flicker group but not on my blog yet. Great job on yours!

  2. Another quilt along to join! Love your star!

  3. I agree - your block is beautiful! I am glad you were able to recover so quickly and easily from your "lack of backing"!

  4. Cathy, it looks great! Well done. You are such a sweet, inspiring person. Hugs! :)

  5. Does the Batman quilt have zippers on it? I'm confused...


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
