Twisted Star Quilt Gifted

By | March 29, 2017

The Twisted Star quilt has been a work in progress for some time but finally it has been finished and gifted. Here is it bound and ready to gift.

A couple we  know from Marc’s history club were having their first baby and of course we needed to present them with a quilt for the baby. I didn’t want to ask the sex so I wanted something fairly gender neutral in the quilt I made.

To record how I made this quilt I saw this quilt on Pinterest called Hidden Star  by Annie McHugs and it got my creative juices going.

I, of course, made some changes, changing the finished size to 36″ from her 52″ inch quilt, and using four constant colours instead of scrappy tones. Laying out the blocks was a bit of a challenge but other than that it went together very nicely and easily.

I found this a little bit unfinished looking so designed a border using the materials in the star.


I think the border just finished it off nicely.
