Peppermint Stars Quilt- Sew Along!

I am planning to make another Peppermint Stars quilt as Christmas gift for this year so I am posting the schedule that I'll be following in case anyone else wants to make it as well.

This isn't your typical quilt along.  Since we are approaching mid-November already and Christmas is a very busy making season, we will be working relatively quickly (compared to a regular quilt along).  I'm breaking the quilt down into tasks to be performed each day with hopes that I'll be finished with the top by December 7th.  Then I'll work on quilting and binding it.

Hopefully I can stay on track.  I'm making loads of other gifts for the holiday so this will be pushing it slightly, but that's ok.  If I fall behind, I'll gift it next year but I'm starting out optimistic!

Here is the quilt!  It is in the December 2019 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting.  You'll need the pattern in the magazine to make the quilt so get a copy before it's taken off of newsstands :)

Here is what the magazine looks like so you know when you are looking at the store-
