Yet Another New Quilt Start



The busy season at work is about to start soon, so I have to pack in as much fun as I can while I can. I've been wanting to make this quilt as soon as I saw it, and these oranges make me think of the quilt-along with spice names for the color choices, like paprika, turmeric, and saffron. I didn't have time for a quilt-along and didn't want to make a sampler block quilt. I don't have an official name for it, but I am calling it Spicy Stars for now.

I am really enjoying making it so far.


 I took Zoey to a cemetery yesterday for a walk. She tends to react to other dogs and while she needs the training, I wanted to enjoy the walk at a place where I could avoid dogs and people.

2023: 15 Minutes to Stitch Week 8

I think I missed last week's report, and during these two weeks finished the piecing the backing of Boundless.  I started Spicy Stars. I also sandwiched Boundless and cut some more scraps for Unallocated.

15 minute days this week --7 out of 7

Your Spicy Stars is going to be gorgeous. I really like all those burnt orange shades you are using. Fingers crossed you can still get in some good stitching time once work picks up. I know how that goes though, it can get overwhelming really fast some weeks.

The colors are so pretty in your new block!

My dog and I like to walk the cemetery for the same reasons. Not many people or other animals and no cars. We don't even have geese!
