Guiding Stars

Time for a post with some quilts and quilting!

I recently quilted a quilt for Ronda from andsewitbegan, I have quilted more than a few of this same pattern.  Many of us have been in a bee with Lakeview Quilters Guild, called Friendship Bee, each month we make one block for another member.  I think our most popular block as been the Guiding Star Block.  A friend had seen this quilt in a shop and asked for the pattern, she was told there was no pattern so she came home and drafted it.  We have loved it – in fact I have 25 beautiful blocks of my own to make into a quilt “someday”.

Here is Ronda’s Quilt after quilting

The block!
