These fabrics were begging for a traditional design, and so, I looked through traditional blocks to find the right combination for this quilt. In the end I decided on these:
It looks as though it is set on point, when in fact it is not! The blocks between the stars are four patches, with triangles in the corners to rotate. The blocks finished at 6″, and the quilt overall is 40″ square.
I just love the colors in this group!
I quilted tight, around a few of the stars. I really wanted it to be comfortable and not too quilted for the most part, but the straight lines were not enough between the blocks.
The borders also got special treatment. Swirls and loops to fill the space!
I am loving this quilt! I had so much fun designing with these fabrics, they are beautiful and soft, with just the right balance of color.
I cut one more table runner while this quilt was in the wash. I love my Go! Cutter – makes triangles quick and simple to cut! What are you working on?
