Here is what I have been working on since I put away the Orange Crush Mystery Quilt (UFO.)


I figure the way prices are going up, I will really need extra bed quilts this winter, and since I have only ever made one for me, I got myself to the front of the line! :wink:

This is the Boxy Stars pattern from Quiltville.com and the finished blocks are 16 inches. There are going to be either 42, or 49 blocks, depending on when I run out of these scraps. My bed is a California King with head and foot boards, so if I go with the 49 blocks (7 rows of 7) it can tuck in and fit a different bed some day.

UPDATE October 30, 2008

This one is all done, bound and on my bed! Boy did we sleep well under it last night! Thanks Jackie for doing such a great job on the quilting!

Quilted by Jacquemoe!
