I’ve probably had this top of Mom’s for a little over 2 years. There were several reasons it didn’t get done before now including the fact that I can more easily quilt larger tops on this new machine and she had others that took priority. I bought the kit from Connecting Threads but I’m sure it’s no longer available.

Pantograph is Happy Times.

While I was quilting, Mom finished up the little Bento Box top – I’m going to toss that on the longarm next week and quilt it for her … it’s a bonus one as this queen size star quilt was #7 and the last one I planned to quilt while she was here. We’ve been making good progress on her list and you can see I got a few more blocks made on my Hunter’s Star Quilt too.


  1. Beautiful star quilt with a soft vintage look to it. And that little Bento Box one is so cute.

  2. Hi Mary and Mom! Lovely neutral quilt – those are my favorite colors. Well, lots are my favorite as I sure do enjoy the Hunter Star colors and the happy Bento ones, too. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Love the star one, and the neutral colors. And the Hunters Star is on my list to do. The Bento Box one makes a very cute quilt for a child. And very happy colors too,

  4. You gals are just putting us all to shame… LOL! I’m loving seeing all these beauties you’re getting done… so inspiring! I love this latest brown star quilt… gorgeous!

  5. I’ve been reading from current 12/5 backwards as I haven’t taken much time for keeping up with your blog (or any for that matter…) I like the panto Happy Times. I’m curious, if you know, what height the panto came out. And, thanks for the ripple afghan instructions. I might try to do another one … after I rip out my “growing” afghan.
