Out of Hibernation with a Quilt Along

Apparently I hibernate in the Summer. Who knew?

I am itching to start a new project!  Katy has a new quilt along starting tomorrow. Eee! We're going to make the Spinning Stars quilt pattern by Anna Maria Horner.

Spinning Stars in Chicopee

After much discussion, trial and futzing in EQ, I landed on a colored version that I loved. It's a little wild.  This is really more of a sketch. I wanted to see how the colors played together before I bought the fabric.  I'm planning on making mine one row longer to cover my feet.

Chicopee by Denyse Schmidt (plus a few others)

The fabric is Chicopee by Denyse Schmidt with a few more from my stash.

Now to make it. Wish me luck! I'm going to try paper piecing it using Ruth's template. It's only three pieces, why am I nervous?!?! You can read more about paper piecing this pattern in the Spinning Stars flickr group.


  1. Wow, that's going to look great! That pattern hadn't caught my eye until your mock-up. A totally different look!

  2. I think that is going to be gorgeous, Adrianne!!! Can't wait to see it come to life!

  3. yay, so glad you picked this version and these prints!!!! it was my #1 choice.

  4. Glad to see your back, love the quilt!

  5. Ce quilt est très joyeux, jolies couleurs ! J'aime !
