Oh, My Quilting Stars! Star Surround Quilt-A-Long

I've gotten a really late start on the Star Surround Quilt-A-Long by Happy quilting. See, I'm woking on a memory quilt, and I already had these half square triangle stars pieced together. I was just going to add white sashing between the stars and be done with it. Done! But then I saw the Star Surround. It was perfect! And I was not Done.


I did already have 9 of inner stars pieced. Those are the most difficult since i'm using shirt fabric with polyester, not 100 percent cotton. I have 3 more to piece. Not too bad, eh? Now i have to make over 100 flying geese. Oh, my quilting stars. Thankfully, they are going together quickly. These blocks are BIG. Mine is 16 inches.


I'm so glad I found this pattern at just the right time. Maybe that is why I have been procrastinating on this quilt for so long. Nothing seemed right. This pattern is perfect and fairly easy to piece.

If you would like to participate in this Quilt-A-Long, then click the link below. There are also many other beautiful surround star pictures to view as well. I love seeing all the fabric combinations.

Happy Quilting,


  1. I am so glad this worked out for you and that you have joined in. So exciting. Isn't it fun how things work out sometimes!

  2. Thank you for designing a beautiful block! It's what I've been waiting/procrastinating for. :)

  3. I love your blue stars!
    I started this QAL as well and my fabric's all cut - but I haven't been able to do any piecing. I don't even feel that I can call it a WIP - yet! Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Thank you for visiting! I love seeing all the different Star Surround combos.
