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.
