Starry Bright Sky Sundays (8): preview blocks in fabric!

In early August, I announced the Starry Bright Sky QAL and many people subscribed to the mailing list and they seem to be excited about this event!!

Even if the QAL will start in 2018, I decided to start a series of posts (one every 2 weeks, on Sunday) to reveal bits and pieces of the events, so that I can get your feedback and we can get more excited about it!!

I will announce sponsors, featured techniques, color scheme options, layouts, and much much more! There are several special things that I've never seen in other QALs before so I hope you will find them intriguing, inspiring and a learning experience!!

I am working on different layouts, different colorways, sponsors and giveaways, etc. It is going to be extra fun!

If you are interested in learning more about this QAL and join the fun, leave your email address in the Google Form in the QAL page at this link.

In previous weeks I shared:
  1. the inspiration
  2. the sewing techniques that will be used
  3. the reveal of the 11 blocks layout
  4. the fun FREE side event
  5. ideas for color combinations
  6. let's talk fabric...
  7. prep and think!

And now, for today's post...

Let's preview the blocks I made with fabric from our sponsors!

In this post, we can see some examples on how I used fabric from 

You can order Cherrywood Fabrics directly from their website.

And did you know that Northcott  has a "Product finder" option in the right bar of their website, so that you can see which local Quilt shop in your area has the product that you fall in love with? And if none of them has the fabric you are looking for, the "Online retailer" option links to shop that you can use to order the fabric and get it on your door step!

If you are curious to know exactly which colors and lines I used in each of my block, download this little coloring/fabric guide. You can use it also to keep track of the fabric YOU choose for your own quilt!!

So do you plan to make your quilt all with one line or brand of fabric? Or do you plan to mix and match? Are you going to use up your stash or buy something new? 
Share it in the comments below so that we can all inspire each other!!

Until next time,
Happy Stitching!!

Remember: all the details about the series are collected in the QAL web page.


  1. I'll be using my stash in various blues, golds and whites. I'm looking forward to the textured blocks too!

  2. I may have to buy some fabric, but it will be mostly from my stash. Have you also been working on the alternate texture blocks?

  3. I am going to use stash, I think I have decided on a black background, with greens and oranges for stars...
