Star Gazer QAL – Week 3 Checking In

Posted by on Mar 4, 2013 in Blog

Hello! I hope everyone had a great weekend and got a lot of good sewing done. I decided to have this week be a “check in” week, where you can let me know how things are going and to have some more time to work on your blocks. They take a while but the finished product is so worth it.

I also wanted to share with you my friend Petra’s* blog post and finished Star Gazer quilt with you as a little inspiration. Petra is an amazingly talented quilter and pretty much blew my mind when she showed me her version of Star Gazer. She made this quilt to raise money for her daughter’s school. How generous is that???

Here is a link to Petra’s blog   Definitely check out her post to read about her experience and tips sewing curves.

And here is a picture of her finished quilt! And please note how she used the tiny star print instead of solid white. Brilliant move, lady. Just brilliant.

Nancy, of Just Quilting PDX, did the quilting for this baby. Such a perfect combination. Here is a link to Nancy’s website

Next week, we will finish up with sewing the quilt top and quilting.

* Petra’s name has an accent but I have no idea how to insert one on WordPress. I apologize.


  1. I so wish I was making this quilt right now! I have the pattern and the fabric and I’m ready to go but we’re in a crazy crunch to put our house on the market currently. I haven’t had a chance to sew in the past two months. Drat. Petra’s quilt is fantastic and Nancy always does an amazing job quilting any top she comes across. Between the three of you, what a beautiful end product! <3

  2. So excited to see you are doing a QAL for this quilt. I already have the pattern but haven’t had a chance to play with it yet. I fell in love with the pattern as soon as I saw it on the fabricworm site and decided it was time to try curved piecing!
    Petra’s quilt is stunning–love the fabric choices!
