Star Light Star Bright Finish!



Phew! Just finished up my Star Light Star Bright Quilt! Just in time for the parade over at Happy Quilting on Tuesday. Late night finishes don’t make the best photos but here it is:)  I love Melissa’s quilt alongs and this one was no different. I decided to go with the one block design for this quilt.

It finishes at 35″ x 35″.


I quilted this quilt using Aurifil 50wt. 100% cotton thread in white.


For the quilting I used my walking foot and did only straight line designs. No real planning, just free style moving around the quilt where the lines lead me…pretty fun that way! My original plan was to do a giant spiral, but waiting until the last minute, I decided to just do what I knew. I have yet to try the spiral design! Next time:)


I machine bound this quilt. You can find my binding tutorial HERE.


I loved this fun chevron print for the back!


Be sure to visit Melissa @ Happy Quilting on April 2nd for the big parade of all the quilt alongs finished quilts! If I am lucky, maybe I will win one of the grand prizes!!!


Be sure to visit on April 1st for a special post I am doing for the Riley Blake Designs Union Jack Blog Tour!

Super excited about this one:) I am going to have a fun tutorial for you guys.

Friday Finish- Tangerine Style!


Tangerine Tango, 50″ x 62″

Two finishes to share on this fabulous Friday:) Tangerine Tango…


Tangerine Squared…


Tangerine Squared, 37″ x 48″

Both of these quilts are made completely of HST’s.  I started making these quilts using Kelly@My Quilt Infatuations tutorial HERE, but got side tracked and just made a bunch of HST’s and went for it! So I ended up with enough for two quilts, bonus:) Tangerine Tango is throw sized and Tangerine Squared is a smaller baby quilt.

Tangerine Tango is a scrappy chevron layout and I am not sure what the Tangerine Squared is….sunshine and shadow? or square in a square?

I tried to take some serene pics …. No, I did not glue this quilt to the fence:) It was so windy! and cold!


Tangerine sunset…


I used Aurifil thread in a teal and orange 50wt. cotton from the Camille Roskelley, Simplify collection. The colors in this collection just seem to match everything I can come up with! The quilting is all straight line designs using a walking foot on my machine.


The fabrics are from a bundle of Fandango by Kate Spain for Moda with a little Fig Tree thrown in there and Denyse Schmidt for the backings.


and the backs…


Sorry these are so wrinkly! Being folded in the car all day…bad idea. I took these on the way home from work:)

Yes, I probably look like a crazy quilt lady taking all these pics at various roadside stops! This was at a local wildlife area so no trespassing:)


the binding…


This fabric bundle had two different stripe prints so I used one on each quilt.


I really love stripes for binding!

I used this machine binding tutorial HERE.


Oh, and I finally got me some official labels for my quilts:) Now I have no excuses to not at least get these on there.

They are from ikaprint. You can find their shop on Etsy HERE.

Tumbler quilt

So, I finally got that binding on and finished this way too old UFO! That’s an Un-Fininshed Object for you newbies! I would say most quilters have a few of these, some of us way too many. My goal this year is to wrap up some of these lonely, abandoned quilt projects!

This quilt was super easy to make. I used the Tumbler Template by Natalie Dawn that I purchased at Missouri Star Quilt Company. You get yourself one of these and a charm pack or two and you are good to go. I added a nice wide border to give it some size(getting a little lazy at the end) and voila!  This fabric is Perennial by Benartex and some pink that I had to match. It was fun to quilt because you could follow the lines of the blocks and zig zag your way along. I did the binding from some leftover green that I had in my stash using this tutorial. I  doing the binding, that’s right…I’m wierd I know:)

Do you like the green binding? It was a toss up between green or pink. I haven’t decided on a name for this quilt. I would love to hear your ideas. So let ’em rip!
