Celestial Star QAL: a T-shirt and Schedule Update

I am seriously giddy with excitement!! I have teamed up with Patchwork Threads (if you haven't heard of them, they design the coolest tees with quilt block designs, and other images on them) and you can now purchase my Celestial Star design on a tee!! {Sqweal!} :)

 I am biased, but I LOVE it!
You can purchase the tee HERE

OR if you are on Instagram, myself (@fromblankpages) as well as @PatchworkThreads are both offering a shirt AND copy of the Celestial Star pattern.

 You can purchase the pattern HERE.

Last week was a much needed break and time off. There was a lot of cleaning, spending time with my kids, and working on a few other things. It was good, and my oldest told me to go to bed at 10:00 everyday so I'm not so cranky in the morning. lol. Oops. I'll work on that. ;) But I am also SO excited to jump back into the Celestial Star QAL! I have reworked the schedule, and here it is. I'm glad that extending the dates is so helpful for so many of you! I'm excited to get my quilt blocks finished and be able to use my new quilt! I think it will be right in time for the cold weather to come. ;) (I LOVE fall!!)

I hope your summer is going well! And that things are going smoothly with the kiddos going back to school! We have a two week delay due to some maintenance on the schools being delayed. We are bummed, but I'll be glad to have my oldest around a little longer.  Happy sewing!! Don't forget to link up your progress below! as well as on Instagram (#CelestialStarQAL). I love seeing all your projects!!





  1. I am so excited that you have teamed up with patchwork threads! It is well deserved my friend!

  2. I Love that t-shirt! I love them all, but I'm so tempted to get it. Congratulations!!! These have been some of my favourite blocks to make, and I am already envisioning a medallion quilt with one of these blocks in the middle....
