2013 Starburst QAL.....What's a gal to do....

 
Block 1a
 
 
Block 1b
 
 
La Belle Fleur
 
Even though no one voted as to whether I would give in and start this new QAL, I guess I knew the stars would be calling me.........:)
What's a gal to do!
 
I'm using this gorgeous bundle so my stars will be in reds, blues, and greens.  I'll use the La Belle Fleur color Pearl for the background.  I sure had a hard time finding yardage in this.  One store still had some.  It's on it's way!!!  Don't tell Big Mickie....giggle.

Pretty blocks - knew you would do that QAL. Great bundle to play with and glad you found yardage - this one is on it's way to retirement.

I must have missed a post or where to vote, because I would certainly have expected you to start it! LOL I love them both, but that first one just rocks! Looking at these, I'd be thinking make them all in the reds, but I bet when you show the blues and greens, I'll love them, too.

Lorna McMahon said...

If those two blocks are any indication.... This is going to be one super sweet quilt! They are perfect! And who could resist that gorgeous bundle? Looking forward to seeing your progress, BillieBee!

The stars are calling me too! I understand completely....what a beautiful quilt this will be. Don't worry about me telling on you....when it comes in the mail.....you can always just hide it in a cereal box or something...LOL.

Gorgeous blocks! Glad to see you started it. I've downloaded the pattern, but haven't started it yet. Seeing your gorgeous blocks makes me think this may be my NewFO for November.
