Spiral Lone Star quilt along in March

 Yikes....I got away from blogging....I had a birthday the 16th and missed that Tuesday to blog!  Then I just stoppped and now it is time to get back to blogging again!!

Jan Krentz is having a Spiral Lone Star quilt along starting in March and I wrote a little about it in my FB cinnamon holiday workshop post on February 6.  The following is from the Amazon site where you can purchase her pattern:

From bestselling author and internationally recognized quilt instructor Jan Krentz, the Spiral Lone Star Quilt, originally published in Lone Star Quilts and Beyond, is now available as a stand-alone pattern pack.

Here are some of my photos of fabric as I try to decide which ones to use. I purchased a fat quarter bundle and now to decide which fabrics to select for the quilt and then purchase more of each one I select. The fabric bundle is Connect the Dots Artisan Batiks by Lunn Studios for Robert Kaufman Fabrics.

This is the photo Jan made that is so striking and I just love it!!! AND it is the photo I posted on my FB cinnamon holiday workshop.

The last two photos show what I am thinking of now...the row of 8 together in each photo.  I will probably change my mind many times.  So I will order some of the extra fabrics on the right side of the last row to go along with the other eight on the left.  I may have some other fabrics to add to these also.

Today I started a practice piece of Jean Wells design from her book Intuitive Color & Design:  Adventures in Art Quilting.  Here is a photo of the start of working on joining four pieces of solid fabrics.  I saw a video by stitches by julia about this and then watched a video by Jean Wells.  And then my February Sew Sampler box had a bunch of solid fabrics that I am now using.  SOOO I just had to start working on practicing this method!!  AND the photos show the start.....

Such fun to do!!!  

AND I am still working on my log cabin loonies small quilt..9 blocks done..
AND I am working on my kawandi table runner

AND now it is getting close to March Madness and we are watching a lot of basketball.  We love to watch our Aztecs and now we are watching a lot of other teams as well.

Smiles and hugs....Caryl
