Star Quilt

By | June 2, 2016

When I was in the States a few months back I visited this wonderful quilt store called Pink Castle Fabrics in Ann Arbour Michigan. It was so fun seeing fabrics that I don’t see at my local quilt store.  I fell in love with some Alison Glass Sun Print Mercury Fabric and couldn’t resist buying a few of her scrumptious prints.

I was planning to make another version of this quit with them and some pale grey background material:

So instead I made some friendship stars using the four colours of fabric I had purchased.






and Red

I have enough background fabric to make 9 of these friendship stars. So the plan is to make them the centre of my quilt. Once they are all sewn together I will figure out how I want to border them.I’m a bit limited with none of my neutral left but that only gives me an excuse to get more creative.

    Pretty colours. I can’t wait to see the finished quilt. How big will it be?

      Bonnie, the quilt will be baby sized. Somewhere between 36 and 40 inches is my guess. Depends on what i end up doing with the border.

    Lovely fabric, I always like friendship stars. I don’t blame you for not making the other one, I made it after seeing it on Pinterest, no pattern, I don’t even know what it is called, but I made it anyway. In a 12inch version for a block swap???? I was nearly tearing my hair out.
