My week 1 for Star Surround QAL

I just could not resist participating in another Quilt-a-long (QAL).  This QAL is run by Happy Quilting and is called Star Surround QAL.  For more info about the QAL, please visit this link here.

I have decided to just make 1×1 16″ block for this QAL.  I will be making it into a dolly quilt for a dolly bed that should be finished any day now.  Hubby is taking his time with painting it.  Hopefully we both can finish at the same time.  Both are for our youngest daughter, Melanie :).

Here are my fabrics cut out for week 1 of the Star Surround QAL.   Purple is her favourite colour.

Two of the chosen fabric above is Veranda Screen Print by Amanda Murphy for Robert Kaufman.  The purple print is D#11500 and the yellow print is D# 11485.



  1. Purple is my favorite, and this looks awesome. This will make the cutest little dollie quilt 🙂

  2. I love purple! And if I’m not mistaken, you are using Veranda. I just fi ished a quilt and some pillowcases using that collection. So pretty and girly! 🙂

      Hi Izzy, yes 2 of the fabric is Veranda Screen Print by Amanda Murphy :). Took me a while but I just worked it out and will be adding the name & print numbers in my post :). Will have to visit your blog to see your finished quilt & pillowcases as I’m currently working on a “Disappearing Nine Patch” quilt using these 2 fabric prints plus a couple of others with no names on them :).
