Quilts for the Twins



Last week was Wish Upon A Star Blog Hop Week.  On Tuesday morning one of the posts that I read was Days Filled With Joy where Joy posted a Quick Star Tutorial.  The tutorial is for a lovely large star like this.


The tutorial is for a 36 inch square star, not a quilt.  You get to choose how you want to set the star into your quilt.

Tuesday afternoon I got a call from a cousin letting me know that she will be the grandmother to twins sometime in the next couple of weeks.  Perfect timing, huh.

Tuesday night I started quilt #1. Last night, 9 days later, I finished quilt #2.


The backing and background are relatively new fabrics but the orange and novelty fabrics were in my stash.


My finished quilts measured in at 50 inch square


I got each top done in about 4 hours. Great time if you are looking for a quickie quilt.


I used a 2 1/2 inch inner border and a 5 1/2 inch outer border. I thought that the star and fabric choices were busy enough to keep the borders simple.

I had a great time  working on this unexpected project.  I'm off to see what's on my actual quilting to do list.  I know there are a few Blog Hops on my horizon.  Need to go and check out their status. 

Happy June
