Little Ruby Quilt-A-Long - Part 2 Star Blocks!!!

It's Part Two of the Little Ruby Quilt Along, I am so excited!!!   Part 2 is all about making the  Star Blocks and they are oh so cute!!!!    You can find all of the details about the Little Ruby Quilt Along right here at the Fat Quarter Shop :)  And just in case you missed my Part One post you can find it here ;)

You start Part 2 with lots and lots of strip piecing ;)   And oh, how I love to do some good ol strip piecing.  I just put a good book on my ipod and away I go ;)   So relaxing and oh so much fun!!!  And you just have to love the pile of strips when you are done!!!   (I put on a good movie to press them, which makes that part more enjoyable as well ;)  

Then, thanks to the awesome Creative Grids 60 degree ruler, cutting all of those strip sets into these cute triangles was a snap :)   Don't they look so cute!!!  This layout is what made me want to do a Christmas fabric because they remind me of little peppermint candies :)   And I just love that the triangles make 2 quilts at once ;)  And yes, I am making both quilts!

And then it was time to sew all of those little triangle rows together ;)  Once again, good book in my ears and a whole lot of chain stitching ;)   So, so, much fun!!!  And I loved the little clips in the corners from the ruler that made it so easy to tell where everything lined up :)   And don't they look so cute all stacked up!!!

After pressing them all, I just couldn't wait to see what they would look like, so I sort of already laid out my rows.   Guess I am super ready for Part 3, which will be shared on  June 27th!!!

And of course, Kimberly has an amazing video tutorial for you walking you through step by step of Part 2!!!  I just love Kimberly's videos, she always has so many great tidbits to share that make the whole process so much easier ;)   

And be sure to pop on over to Fat Quarter Shop for all of the Litle Ruby Quilt Along Part 2 details ;)   And while you are popping around, check out all of the Little Ruby Bloggers too!!!   There is some amazing quilt along eye candy going on today!!!

  1. you pick the BEST fabrics to work with!

  2. I love that you're doing a Christmas version! Now they remind me of peppermint candy too!


  4. I am thrilled with your progress. I had decided I wasn't going to participate with this quilt a long. You have changed my mind. I want to buy two Juniper Berry jelly rolls and get to it.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
