I'm so excited to be able to head up this little quilt for Dorian!

I don't have everything figured out just yet, but as soon as I do, I'll be back!

Project Coordinator – Jami                 Project Co-Coordinator - Cindy

With the Holidays fast approaching, I'd like to suggest that we try to get all blocks and fabrics to the piecer as soon as possible. I'd really like this little quilt to be in Dorian's hands when the baby arrives!

Aunties, let’s make the http://quilting.about.com/od/babyquiltpatterns/ss/double_star.htm for this new arrival to our Q&N family! Dorian and Hubby aren’t going to find out what “flavor” this baby is…they want it to be a surprise so we are going to use gender neutral colors and prints.

Finished size is approx. 52 1/2" X 63 1/2".

To make this baby quilt, we will need the following –

20 Double Star Blocks - These blocks will be 10 ½” UN-FINISHED!!! PLEASE make sure your blocks measure this!!! It makes the Piecer’s job SO much easier!

We are using a pale-pale yellow tone on tone for the background, a medium green for the points and center square and a novelty print suitable for either a boy or girl for the other points.

Sashing – 49 – 1 ½” x 10 ½” rectangles – Minty Green tone on tone or very small print (or ¾ yard to piecer) - Sue rcvd 12/9 by CP

Inner Border – 6 – 1¼” X WOF OR  3/8 yard of Medium Yellow sent to piecer - Gerda rcvd 11/22 by CP

Outer Border – 7 – 4” X WOF strips of a Gender Neutral Novelty Print (this doesn't need to be green, it's just what I used in my EQ program) – Sherry rcvd 12/1 by CP

Would like the Cornerstones and Binding to be the same -
Cornerstones – 30 – 1 ½" Squares – Soft Orange Tone on Tone or very small print – Pat rcvd 11/29 by CP
Binding – 6 – 2 ¼” X WOF Soft Orange (Same as the Cornerstones) – Pat - rcvd 11/28 by Donna
Batting 60” X 70” – Pat
Backing Fabric 60” X 70” – Milica - rcvd 11/2 by Donna
Label – Jami (I have this on my Embroidery machine)
Piecer – Cindy (Both Quilts...Dorian's Baby Quilt & the Bonus Quilt for Harmony House)
Quilter – Donna (Dorian's Baby Quilt & Charity Bonus Quilt)

Aunties, please remember to send a couple of dollars to help with the postage costs incurred by the Piecer sending the top to our Quilter who will then send the finished quilt to Dorian and Her Hubby.

The way this pattern is sewn & cut out, you will have “extra” mirror images of the block pieces. If you would please send the extra pieces to the piecer to make the “Bonus Quilt” we can then donate it for the Charity Quilts that we do. Thanks!!

jami, i added the pic of the "Extra Units" bonus quilt from the quilting.about.com site since i was curious what it looked like and thought everyone else might be curious too!   

and if you haven't already thought of this, may i suggest that we donate the bonus quilt to harmony home?  i think that would be especially appropriate since dorian is the moderator for the Sweet Child quilts    

and jami, you know i'd be honored to piece both quilts

hooray to donna!!!

I think I have everyone added in so far...Thank you all for joining in!

Cindy- I didn't figure in any extra fabrics for the bonus quilt. I just thought we'd have the blocks in one place to be pieced and quilted for one of the charities. Would you like me to add those in that we need or just add to them later?

Thanks so much everyone!! If you need Cindy's address, please let us (Cindy or me) know and we will get it to you.

Hi,

It's getting near tea time and I'm hungry so forgive my addled brain! Have I got this clear?

After cutting there will be enough for another set of blocks? So an extra quilt is planned (pretty sure I got that bit right) I am signed up for the sashing, so now I send double the amount  of fabric - correct????

Sue

sue, jami hasn't figured what is needed for the bonus quilt.  there is a pic of the bonus quilt on jami's first post above - in fact i'll post the pic here again.  the leftovers are "parts" of the original block and this is the suggested layout for the bonus quilt!  we're just trying to find out if everyone wants to complete this bonus quilt now or just let the piecer hold onto the extra "parts" and we'll complete it at a later time.

I vote to make the bonus quilt at the same time. I can quilt it, too, if y'all need me to.
