Scrappy Blues

I finished the quilting on my December Scrappy Stars that I won in the Block Lotto in December, 2018.  I even trimmed it today.  I picked a bright blue border.

This piece for the back was just the right size.  I love it when that happens.  I longarm quilted it with a pattern board called Airborne from Urban Elementz.  I think it looks lovely on this quilt and gives it a little motion--like a breeze blowing through it.

I'm linking up with Angela at So Scrappy for the RSC19.

Meanwhile the boys "played" on the backhoe today.  Our son was sooooo proud of himself for working the bucket.  My husband is such a patient man -- waaaaaaaay more than me.  It's awesome.


  1. Quilt AND your son learning to work the backhoe... AWESOME!!!

  2. Congrats on finishing the beautiful quilts. Lucky you for winning such beautiful blocks. The quilting pattern is perfect, just "breezy" enough. Awh! yes! Boys and their toys. They are making unforgettable memories. Beautiful! ;^)

  3. Beautiful quilt and that backing is luscious!

  4. Oh, your stars quilt finish is awesome! I remember making some of those blocks for the Block Lotto. Your quilting really makes the quilt, Kathy!

  5. The quilt came out so pretty! Cross this one off that long list of yours!

  6. Your Star Quilt is beautiful and the quilting motif truly is perfect. Great job! Boys sure are a funny lot. Imagine being so obsessed with operating a backhoe. A sewing machine is WAY MORE FUN! Haha!
