Welcome to the Star Gazer Quilt Along

Posted by on Feb 15, 2013 in Blog

Welcome to the Star Gazer QAL. I am so excited to get this party started.

First, to introduce myself, I am Melissa of Lunden Designs. I have been sewing all my life and fell in love with quilting 5 years ago. I moved from NYC to California 3 1/2 years ago, where I began sewing for Birch Fabrics. After getting requests for patterns for the quilts that I was making for Birch, starting a pattern company was the next natural step. Lunden Designs was born this past summer.

I am so excited to be doing this QAL and to get to know everyone who is participating. If you feel so inclined, please leave a comment introducing yourself.

I also set up a Flickr group so it would be easy for us to share pictures of our fabrics and quilts. Here is a link to the group. http://www.flickr.com/groups/stargazerquiltalong/

So, my plan for the QAL is to do a weekly post on Mondays, that way we can have time to work on the quilts over the weekend. This Monday I am going to talk about picking fabrics, cutting and layout.  The week after that, we can talk about sewing curves. The following week we can talk about piecing the quilt top and the week after that, we can discuss quilting. If you think this is going too fast, let me know and I can slow things down.

And please feel free to email me along the way if you have any questions. I would love to hear from you and to help in anyway I can. My email is melissa@lundendesigns.com
Thank you so much for joining along!


  1. I am excited to join in! A little about me, I’ve been sewing all my life but didn’t really get serious about quilting until 2009 and I haven’t stopped. I live in Portland Oregon and have been really active in our local guild. I’m going to Quiltcon next week which I am really excited about! I blog at Sew Paint Create.

    • Hello Petra! I am so excited that you are doing the QAL.
