Wish Upon A Star Blog Hop And My Day, Too

I feel like my wishes all came true this week during the Wish Upon A Star blog hop.
I wished for star inspiration and my wish was totally fulfilled.
Thanks to everyone who played along or left messages of encouragement!
You are amazing!


It's my day to share a star project!
I went into my stash and found a huge fat quarter bundle from probably
ten years ago. It was full of stars and had a cute patriotic panel included in it.
Perfect for the Wish Upon A Star project.

I worked on it during my mini quilt retreat with friends.
That's Las Vegas in the background. It was an awesome view!


There were so many places to take pictures at this home.


The pool was beautiful!


Lily was a great quilt model...she's the sweetest dog!



Isn't that bell so cool!


The flowers in the yard were heavenly...




It was such a fun place to take pictures, plus it felt good to use up fabric in my stash!


Look who's starring in this week's blog hop!

GIVEAWAY!

I love shopping at my sweet friend Corrie's store, Quilt Taffy, so I thought I'd
let one of you have some fun shopping there, too. I'm giving away a $20 gift certificate
for her store. Corrie has great customer service and is quick!



Visit the Wish Upon A Star Pinterest Page to see all the amazing projects.

Carol, what a fun patriotic quilt. Obviously it would have stars but it's got so much more!! I'm sure this is going to be displayed real soon for the upcoming red, white and blue holidays. That bell is great but Lily is definitely my favorite part of your photos. Thank you again for this wonderful blog hop which brought me the most traffic ever on my little humble blog. I adore your themes and the resulting camaraderie among us quilters. Keep them coming and I remain a huge fan!!

Hi Carol,
This has been one of the best of your blog hops! Everyone shared such fabulous projects, yourself included. I appreciate that you gather all of us together for these! Lily is a great model and that pool looks heavenly - we're supposed to be in the 90s this weekend so that would be so refreshing.
Happy Friday! ~smile~ Roseanne

Stars, stars are everywhere. Love your patriotic and starry quilt. Great photo opps especially with the bell - made me think of the Liberty Bell. Thanks, Carol, for another fun hop. I rather like the simplicity of your hops...has to have a star on it someplace...it allows lots of creativity.

It was a perfect place to shoot that quilt, outstanding. And Lilly appears to be a camera loving sweet heart. The hop sure served it's purpose in introducing a multitude of stars. A success I would say. Thank you.
Have a great and safe holiday.

Wonderful to end the hop with a patriotic quilt! It's perfect, and my favorite pic is the one with the dog and the bell, but second favorite is where I can see the entire quilt at once. Thank you so much for putting this together and the giveaway, too.

Beth said...

Your Lily is a darling model! And I haven't seen bottle brush trees in ages--not since I was a little girl, when I didn't have to worry about how messy they were and just thought it was amazing that they looked just like the brushes we used to clean baby bottles.

Vickie said...

Hmmm, I tried to comment from my phone and it obviously didn't make it! Beautiful stars projects! Nice work putting this together, Carol!

Wendy said...

Dearest Creepy Carol... thank you so much for including me in your fun! Your quilt is beautiful as is your scenery and your backdrop. Well done well done!
