W.i.P. Wednesday for me and the WINNER!!!!

I have a list a mile long of things I intend to do. I have a list a mile long of what I should do. I have a list a mile and a half long of things I know I will never get to but want to try anyway... and I am going to keep them all posted every week to help keep my list from controlling ME!!!!

Today I did start one of my intend to do...which is now officially a WIP :) It is my first block for the Lucky Stars on Don't Call Me Betsy




I chose Amy Butler fabrics from my stash. I decided I LOVED the Solstice Stars Pineapple Princess Quilt that I made last year so much that I wanted to have one for my house. The Pineapple Princess is being loved in San Diego :o) So this star quilt will have the same feel but nowhere near as beautiful quilting since I am NO quilting master,LOL! Laurie Tigner did an amazing job!!!!



So I have...
The Lucky Stars started
The Aurifil BOM...no progress
The Gen X BOM
The Skill Builder BOM ( starting Jan 17)
do. Good stitches Believe Blocks...fabrics chosen...WOO HOO
Bee a {modern} swapper Jan blocks...no progress

and the #tripalong quilt is still hanging whilst I decide how to keep the scrappy peace and keep mama happy ;o)

Linked to W.i.P. Wednesday




I also need to announce the WINNER of the Giveaway!!!! Thanks everyone for participating :o) I have more great giveaways in mind.



Congratulations 
I will be contacting you via email in the morning!!!!!

I've been thinking of joining the scrappy trip along. My strips are all different sizes and the thought of sorting them gives me a headache! Love your idea of using a jelly roll. Or hmmm... i have a honeybun laying around too!

I clicked over and looked at your Don't Call Me Betsy Lucky Stars BOM and I'd say you are off to a great start with your beautiful star block.

Giving your stars lots of negative space will give you lots of quilting room. Who says we have to be as good as the pros--maybe we just have to take a small little leap ourselves and give it a go.

This should be beautiful--can't wait to see it unfold.

That's so pretty! I love the FMQ on that quilt too, don't know if I'll be brave enough to FMQ the Lucky Stars Quilt, but I hope you do even if you're not an expert!

Love your fabric choices for your block. :)

I'm just new to your blog and my eye was really caught by your Lucky Star. Your star block looks like it will more than match the quilt you made previously. Lovely work.
