Finish It Up Friday~More Rose Star Blocks Finished

These are nine of the blocks I've finished for the Rose Star Block quilt.
This Saturday I'll have the whole morning and afternoon to piece them together with the white background.
Some quiltey friends, old and new, will be getting together at a LQS for a day of sewing, food and fellowship.
I'm so excited.

Since Valentine's Day, I've managed to put together three more blocks to take to assemble this quilt top.

The above mosaic showed me I'm heavy on the pink side.
That might be a rebellion to all the testosterone that lives at my house.

This block was started before I realized how "pink" heavy I am.  The blue layer is about where I figured that out and switched it out with another pink I had chosen.

There.  That's definitely better.  Nothing like some FMF to brighten your day!  Still some pink to keep the block playing happy with the others, but some good strong yellow and brown in the mix.

And another mostly blue block to help balance the colors, but still some pink peekiing through to help it coordinate with the others.

As I said, I'm hoping to just work on piecing these all together Saturday and having a better idea of how big this needs to be to fit on hubsy-sweet's and I's bed.
More pictures to come after the sew-in.

I'm linking with Amanda Jean's Finish It Up Friday and Amy's Finish It Up Friday
Linky parties are like boxes of chocolates when you take the lid off.  You see such scrumptiousness inside, you can't help but take a closer look...and you usually find something very yummy to look at and leave a comment about!


  1. Dee, you are going great guns on these! They are so so pretty! I've decided to go back and add some backgrounds to the ones I've already done before I make more so that I don't have a huge background adding job at the end - that is a sure recipe for procrastination!

  2. These are rocking! You know, it's not a lot of pink. You have blended the color very well. And In my book, you can never have enough pink. Have fun!

  3. What beauties these are, I've been enjoying seeing them made, but all together, w.o.w. Great work!
