Today was another snow day/sew day here in VA. Downer in that I do need to actually go to work, but always glad to get some extra sew time:)
I have been following along with Melissa @Happy Quilting and participating in her Star Light Star Bright Quilt-a-Long. I just couldn’t resist this fun quilt design! Since my plate was pretty full I did the one block design as a baby quilt. These blocks have lots of pieces, so I’m glad I did! It went together pretty simple aside from one cutting error that led to a design change:), but I think it works… no extra fabric so it has too!
Here is a little show of all our steps we have completed.
Fabric cutting. I am using Gray Matters by Jackie Savage McFee for Camelot Fabrics. I have been dying to do a gray/yellow combo.
Half Square Triangles… lots of these! I laid mine out on the design wall to get a feel for the quilt. HERE is a tutorial for how to make your own design wall!
Block centers. Love this star!
Block sides. I did not anticipate all the crazy paisley directions.
Block corners. Love these polka dots:)
Finished top with borders. What do you think….gray or yellow binding?
I have a couple weeks to quilt it and get it in the Grand Prize Linky. Trying to not wait till the last minute on this one. It’s not too late to join in!!! You have until April 2nd. So if you are speedy, head on over to Happy Quilting and catch up!
Here is a pic of a bigger quilt with this pattern:
Be sure to check back in on Friday for the start of the Triangle Quilt Along! Not too late to join in:)
Keep it Sassy♥
