Block 9 by Jovita

 Jovita is the designer for block 9 on the "Moose on the Porch" Fat Quarter Star QAL. She is expecting twins and after designing many star blocks decided on this one because of her babies to be.  It was a lot of fun to make.  She always comes up with patterns that work really well!  I am still learning how to share where these people are in blogland....but you can get to FQSQAL from my sidebar and find her there....sorry...I am a work in progress!  (O:

My 10X10 Made in Cherry

I am using 3 Sister's Park Ave. for this QAL.  I have the main body done just need to get going on the star points.  I have the dark brown for the background of the top.  I have loved this fabric for a long time and have been gathering it for about the same!!  It's a fun quilt to make and she has given us many size options.

My Lucky Day

On December 22, 2011 I woke up to find out that I had won the "Moose on the Porch FQSQAL!!  I got these wonderful fat quarters as my prize!!  Then that same evening I was checking a giveaway on Melissa's blog Happy Quilting....and I won again!!!  This time a Jelly Roll by Joanna Figueroa...California Girl...from Burgandy Buttons ...Oh my goodness I could hardly believe my eyes!!

Farmers Wife

Here is block 88 "Star of Hope" and block 4 "Basket Weave".  I used a 2 inch square with the line drawn diagonally down the center and sewed on either side to make the Star of Hope triangles.  Worked really well!
