Jasmine Star

Jasmine Star Quilt

I am working on the Jasmine Star Quilt
designer is Marianne Elizabeth Nashua

I found this quilt in Quiltmakers Magazine 6 years
ago and fell in love with it.  Yes it is on the cover.
First kit I had ever purchased.

Can you see why, I fell right in love with this design.
So me.

So it has taken me a while to get to it.
But better late then never.

Spent several weeks working on the cutting out process.
My husband thought I was nuts, 
but in reality it was an enjoyable process and
really makes one pay close attention.  LOL.  

Our quilt group has a retreat at the end of January
and that was my goal to begin this top.
It will be a king size when done.

So here are some of the blocks
The center block.

There are 4 of the cream and raspberry and
4 of the block with the 4 patch in the middle
This is an on point design.
Center is finished and first border is on.

Just started sewing together the green blocks, took a bit to 
get all the components made, tons of flying geese units
24 green blocks (see design) to make.

It will be nice to have another quilt for our room.
I may see about selling this first though.  

I hope to have it finished for our quilt show at the end of May.

Stay tuned.

Wow, Gail, you never pick the easy ones, do you? =) It is beautiful and can hardly wait to see the progress you make. I can't cut much in advance. I have all the parts for something cut, and I even labeled it, but none of it makes sense to me now, so ... something else will be made from the pieces. LOL

Sure seems that way doesn't it. I get bored pretty easy so a quilt that challenges me is best, that way I will work till it is done and not give up and move to something else. I have to make sure I keep working at the quilt I am doing, having to many things going is stressful and I forget what I was doing so best for me to stay focused.
I am having a bit of trouble with this one in that all the blocks are the same, so doing the 24 green and burgundy blocks is boring, if I can keep my focus for 3 or 4 blocks a day I am doing good. LOL.

It is beautiful and does look complicated. One block at a time. Right?
