Hi everyone! I’ve been such a busy girl in the sewing room over the last few days which means I have a new quilt to show you.
I made the quilt top some time ago and stored it in my box labelled “To Quilt”. I already have a tutorial at the right of this page showing how I made the stars. I know there are several other ways to make this star block but my idea this time, was to use a complete charm pack plus dark and light solids.
I split the charm pack into 20 light and 20 darker squares and paired the light ones with burgundy solid and the darker ones with ivory.
I used the patches as a kind of grid to position the swirly quilting.
I didn’t actually like this charm pack very much when I opened it up but I think it coordinates really well with the solids I’ve chosen.
I like to use a solid fabric for the back as it really highlights the quilting. This leaves no room for errors!
The binding is also ivory solid, sewn to the front by machine and hand-stitched to the back. I hope you like it
