I've started another project! Just a pillow cover, so that I can join another of Melissa Corry's Quilt-alongs. This is the fourth one I've done and always loved the end results. This is another large star and just 9 make a good-size lap quilt.

I talked my best friend, Kim, into making one too. Tonight I am at her house and before we started sewing on our individual projects, we cut out our blocks for the quilt-along.
Here is Kim's selection: pink stars and purple for the surround, on a white background. I'm linking for her because she doesn't have her own blog.
And mine, similar to one of Melissa's colour choices:
I probably could use a bit more contrast, but I have a plan!
We also cheated and figured that instead of cutting 2 7/8" blocks, they will probably be used to make half-square triangles, so we used the Easy Angle to cut triangles from 2 1/2" strips. If we're wrong, oh well, white triangles will never go to waste!
Linking to the Quilt-along Cutting Instructions - have a great night!
