While Shooting Star is being basted, I'm working on a quilt for our guest bedroom.
 My daughter chose the colours and fabrics to complement a picture on the wall.
I suggested the pattern, and then did lots of math to work out the sizes of the squares and how to put them together into manageable sections.

Here's how it looks so far:

The squares can fit together in lots of different combinations and orientations, and that gives me the really random look I wanted. DD doesn't like random and keeps trying to impose order!

I made lots of progress on the squares at a recent quilt retreat, and had some great advice about including the largest squares. Without that advice I wouldn't be so far on with the quilt. I estimate I have about 2/3 of the squares I need.

Till next time,



  1. I love the randomness! and the colors! Sometimes I think about just sewing pieces together and making them fit! LOL... love it!

  2. This is so beautiful! I love the colors and it will be so amazing when it all comes together!

  3. I'm trying to do random now but my brain likes symmetry...bad brain! I love what you're doing and am sure your daughter will be delighted.

  4. I try to do randomly organized. I'm too OCD to do full random! Yours looks great!

  5. I like random. It will look less random when it is sewn together.

  6. I love the squares! The sizes, the colors, and the layout!

  7. I love the randomness! The colors and the patterns you've used add such texture! Beautiful!

  8. OOOOHHH, I LOVE the colors and the name of this quilt!! Sounds as YUMMY as it looks. What are the sizes of your blocks if you don'tmind me asking?
