A few weeks back I dragged my small boy’s July Stars quilt off his bed and outside for a photo shoot. I finished this quilt a year ago. When I finished it, I wasn’t sure I really liked it, but seeing my small boy tucked up with it every night this last year has completely changed my mind. What was I thinking!? I love it now!
I used a free pattern called July Stars by Allison from Cluck Cluck Sew. Most of the fabrics are from Out to Sea by Sarah Jane, the remaining fabrics were from my stash. The quilt was pieced over the Christmas holidays while the local quilt shops were closed so I challenged myself to use only stash fabrics, it meant there were a few fabric choices that I wasn’t in love with. Now I kind of love those odd choices.
I free motion quilted with a squiggly line, fun and fast! The backing is a Kona Cotton solid (Baby Blue I think).
We took loads of photos, here are a few of them.
