Anniversary Stars

I have been fretting for over a year about what to make as a quilt for my parents 50th anniversary which was last year. I had found a quilt pattern that I liked but was not happy with the colours I chose. I put it away and then last June when I was at Quilts Canada I bought surprise fabric bags that had Kona Cotton Mahogany Palette charm packs in them. Red is my mother's favourite colour and I knew I wanted to use the charm packs somehow in the quilt. Then this April I saw this beautiful quilt by Canuck Quilter and I knew it would be perfect to make for my parents. The pattern is one of her own called Jelly Bean Stars and she posted more about the quilt today. I have bought other patterns from her and find them to be very well laid out and easy to follow. I am so happy that I have finally started the anniversary quilt which will hopefully be done by their 52th anniversary.

Linking to Let's Bee Social and WIP Wednesday.

You're off to a good start! I love these star blocks. You just can't cut off any points :) Thanks for the links to my patterns and blog, and for your kind words too.

Her patterns are so great! I just won a copy of Jelly Bean stars myself. This will be a wonderful gift for your parents :)
