Grand Opening!

Lots going on today! It's officially the first day back for teachers here, and thus my first day not working (if that makes any sense).

1. I revamped my blog! It was definitely time. For all of you checking in from a reader, here's what's you're missing out on. ;)

2. My quilt pattern is finally here!! Amanda was my pattern tester. She assures me that everything is in order and that the quilt came together quite easily! Getting these pictures was not so easy (something about falling in a swamp), but I really appreciate her effort. In order to celebrate the pattern and her beautiful version, Amanda has graciously offered a charm pack of Happy Campers (which she used) and a copy of the pattern to give away.


Amanda has her own little fabric shop that I am insanely jealous of. She has a great assortment of pre-cuts over there. And while this isn't technically a sponsored giveaway, I had to give her a shout out.

To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment with who you would make this quilt for. US entries only. I'll draw a winner on Monday, August 15. *If you purchase the pattern and end up winning, I will refund the pattern price.*

3. My Etsy shop. While it looks a bit bare now, I promise that I will have more goodies up in the next few days. Keep checking back! If there is something special that you would like to see, please let me know!


To reward those of you who actually read my blog, I have coupon code for 15% off your purchase (excluding shipping). Simply enter GRANDOPEN15 when you check out in the coupon box. This coupon will expire at midnight EST on Thursday.

  1. I found your blog through Amanda's. Super cute star quilt. I would love to make one for my son.

    I am guessing you are a teacher that is now retired? Me too!
    Happy to have found you.

  11. Wow! I really love this quilt pattern. I love modern quilting that has no repeat blocks! It is gorgeous and I would make it for myself and my family, to have when we are chillin' downstairs watching t.v. or playing board games.

  15. This is such a cute pattern. And I love the pillow! So gorgeous.
    I would have to make this for my younger sister. She's such a diva and swears shes a star. But despite everything, she shines brightly and allows others to shine too.

  16. I came over from Amanda's blog...your quilt is very pretty and I love it with the blue background (and the white too). I'd make it for my middle daughter--Esther. Her name actually means "star." And it's sad to say, her big sister Bea has 2 quilts and her baby sister Veronica has 1, but I haven't made her one of her own yet. I guess it's typical middle child syndrome:)
