Lovely Stars and ice cream
I love this quilt. It makes me quite happy. The colours speak to me of ice cream. Measuring about 42" by 42", I think it will make a lovely baby girl quilt. I used some of Sandy Gervais "lovely" line for Moda for the wonky stars and binding. The wonky stars are set in a variety of solids and almost solid. Some Kona Honeydew, Buttercup and Peach. Some Bahama Blue too and a bunch of other things. The quilt is backed with some yellow flannelette with a strip of leftover bits and quilted in my favourite Aurifil 50 wt in white. I quilted several lines on either side of the blocks. I think I have said this before but I like baby quilts kind of "floopy" so I don't like to quilt them a lot.
I was inspired by Faith's quilt over at her blog Fresh Lemons. I like her quilts. Just so you know. And baby quilts are fun to make because they are finished quickly. Does this one have a home yet? Nope. Just hoping it will do for one of the quilts son's lovely girlfriend needs to gift this fall.
100% made from stash fabrics. How cool is that?
