Welcome again to the Quilt Design Star™ 2012 Challenge 1 designer showcase!
Sally wrote to us, detailing her progress so far on Challenge 1 of the competition:
“First of all, I just want to tell everyone how fantastic all my family and friends have been through the process so far. They voted for me every day without any reminders and when they found out I have progressed to Challenge 1, they responded so positively I couldn’t be prouder.”
“I have not made the Amish Star Block before, but to me it looks pretty straight-forward. As soon as I got the email yesterday that I was to proceed to Challenge 1, I printed out a copy of the block. Then I just looked at it and ideas were rolling around my head, so I developed a plan. Later on I got another brainstorm regarding the block, but I can’t divulge that until the top is finished and entered. Today I put the pattern pretty much out of my head and did a little shopping for some of the fabrics.” We can’t wait to see what you make with those gorgeous blue fabrics, Sally!
