Blogger’s Quilt Festival: May 2013

AmysCreativeSide.com

It’s time once again for…the Blogger’s Quilt Festival! I’m really happy to have something to show. My quilt guild buddies know I struggle with time to sew these days. In fact, it’s been months since I’ve had a completed project to show at a meeting. So, I took advantage of being home one weekend (miserable with allergies) and focused all my energy on this quilt.

 


I bought the fabric with a completely different quilt in mind that just didn’t feel “right” once I got home. My good friend, Amanda at The Cozy Pumpkin, had this link on Facebook and the idea went from there.

I drafted a mock up of how I wanted the quilt, color coded my fabrics and started sewing. 

When going through my blog reader a couple days later, I saw this post on V & Co. Apparently, great minds think alike.

I simply cut 5.5″ x 5.5″ squares and randomly placed a star in white. For my star, I used the February Block-of-the-Month pattern on the OKC Modern Quilt Guild site. I made my points even, rather than wonky and quilted it with a random meandering pattern to enhance that crinkly look I love so much.

Updated: Find the tutorial on how to make the points even HERE.

I love how this quilt turned out and the new mommy did too! Congratulations Kristi!
