Wish Upon A Star Blog Hop Day 2 Plus Giveaway

Welcome to day 2 of the Wish Upon a Star blog hop! Today is also my day to share with you my star quilt. 

If you've been following me on instagram (@lilypatchquilts) you saw my teaser posts of the fabrics I was planning to use for my scrap quilt.

I made one block a couple of years ago and meant to make more but time just slipped away and other projects got in the way. I saved my Sweetwater fabrics to make more of the blocks so I can turn them into a large quilt. Now is as good a time as any to continue working on my quilt. The pattern is called Fresh from Camille Roskelly's book.


GIVEAWAY:
I have a giveway for my readers over at my Instagram account (@lilypatchquilts). It’s for a Craftsy class of your choice! The giveaway will end after this hop (May 26, 11:59 pm). Head on over there and enter to win. 


Be sure to check out all the participants on today's hop.

I came from IG to here! LOL I love the quilt. I wondered what those triangles are for. I prefer blogs because you can see a bigger picture, so I often skip over to a blog from IG. @gingerkwilt
