Starry Bright Sky QAL - Pattern 2b Traditional Piecing

I finished the second block for the month in the Starry Bright Sky QAL.

Each month Alida shares several blocks, those who make one and post a photo following her directions are eligible for a drawing and will receive the next month's designs and directions via email.

Information on this QAL is posted here.

This QAL has just started, it's not too late for you to join in to make the beautiful quilt Alida has designed.  In addition to the blocks, I'm looking forward to making the extra blocks that have folds and creases in the fabric - to make textured blocks!

I've linked this post up to the group page:
Go ahead and see the pretty blocks folks are posting to the site!


TIP Added Feb 27 9:00am: I forgot to note that this little tool really helps when making HST!
Deb Tucker's Quilter Magic Wand -

It was easy to line up with the corners on the yellow fabric so I drew the stitching lines on either side.  To make the cutting easier I cut all my Color 1 yellows from a 3 inch strip.  Sewed, cut and just a little minute trim and the HST were ready!


We had dinner over a friend's tonight - this was the view when we first arrived...

I recently signed up with Reddit, still learning how to get around it.  But today there were posts about a man who had had heart attack - his post was inspiring.  Thought about it all day.


  1. Great job with this second block too! And beautiful pictures, what a view!! Thanks for linking up your block in the linky.

    1. Thank you Alida!

      I forgot to add yesterday so did today - that using Deb Tucker's Magic Wand really helped with making the HST. Also added photo of all my blocks completed so far!
