39 Blocks Before Baby: Week Nineteen

Well, it's a quilt top in progress! It's not done yet, but I'm getting there. Slowly. But at least it's pretty!

Plugging away at my 39 Blocks Before Baby top

Speaking of pretty, I have been making decent progress on my hand sewing project at night, when I can manage to stay awake. I've got piles and piles of these little stars, and I think I'm nearing the finish line of the star-making, at the very least. I'm excited to maybe finish up this pillow before baby makes her appearance in three short weeks for the couch in our bedroom.

Don't forget, if you love these blocks, you can get all the patterns for the blocks I've made in this project by subscribing to the Epic Sampler BOM Club, where you receive 3 new block patterns per month. All of the blocks from my 39 Blocks for Baby project are included in your subscription. You can find out more about the club right here. Have a great week everyone!


  1. what kind of table do you have for your Juki?

    1. A homemade one, actually - you can find all the details about my setup right here:

  2. Elizabeth, your quilt is WAY beyond pretty! And I'm swooning over your pile of stars :) Either this will be a big pillow--or these are really tiny stars!

    1. Thanks Karen! Kinda teeny stars, I'm afraid - I figure it's going to take about 40 of them to make a good 20" pillow cover, but I think I'm almost there!

  3. I love the colors you are using for those stars!

  4. What a strikingly beautiful quilt. Have a Happy Holiday season. Hugs


Thank you for leaving a comment for me! I appreciate each and every one of them and try to respond when time allows. Your comments totally brighten my day :)


Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a very busy nine year old boy and a one year old baby girl and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
