Here is one of the two little star quilts I finished last night and here are the measurements. All the squares are cut 2″ x 2″ and the star points are connector squares cut 1-1/4 x 1-1/4″. The block finishes 4-1/2″ x 4-1/2″.
Remember when I was searching for the pink camouflage fabric? Here is the quilt. Rick’s son, Eric and his wife Nikki are expecting their first daughter in June and here is the new baby’s quilt. They live in Northern Minnesota and we hope to meet her later this summer. I guess this quilt can’t be a surprise, can it?
Love, love, LOVE!!! Great pattern, great fabric choices. It feels vintagey, scrappy, playful, AND hip & modern all at the same time. An awesome gift for a baby who’s sure to be well-loved.
My first two sentences in the comment above are referring to the star block quilt. The third sentence refers to the pink baby quilt.
beautiful quilts – thanks for the pattern – very generous of you!
Mary, do you hand sew your bindings?
Cathy – yes, I hand sew the binding
I love your fabric color choices. I have a hard time putting fabrics together and admire those that seem to have a nack for that. Thanks for the pattern. I am going to try making one. Hope mine turns out half as nice!
Really pretty quilts especially love the pink quilt. Love that fabric.
Thanks for sharing the little star quilt pattern. I will try it:) That baby quilt turned out soooo pretty. Do they have a name picked out?
You did it again, using up your very small scraps. I like the results. Don’t we just love our graph paper?
Guess it is still winter/spring. The hills may get 12″ of snow, but here in town we are getting tiny snow pellets, snow flakes and rain. We do need the moisture and it will melt so fast. It really feels good outside, but I wouldn’t want to walk a long way. We’d get so wet.
Little star quilt just the cutest. Will try this. Love the background fabrics you used. Anita
I also love the pink baby quilt, a real treasure. I made a similar one with soft pink colors but flannel for my grand daughter. It’s full size and she is 13 now and loves it because it’s so soft. Quilts are such special gifts.
I really like the quilt with the camouflage fabric great pattern choice. Thanks for the little star quilt pattern.
Love the two quilts but really like the pink one. Have a good day. Paula in KY
Morning Mary, I hand stitch quilt bindings to the back as well. I know a few quilters who sew the binding to the back by machine first and then bring it to the front and machine stitch. Always looked fine, but I’m “old school”!
Your pink camo quilt is unique……very feminine for a girl.
Enjoyed seeing your two wee star toppers.
This sunny morning may bring a little April shower later afternoon.
Waiting to see what you and Connie are “cooking up” with those wonderful rolls and cuts of fabrics.
Loved this quilt! Sheer perfection!!
I went to school with Rick at Ventura. We’ve been trying to get in touch with him about a reunion this summer and have been unsuccessful. If you could respond to my email with contact information, I would appreciate it. Thanks,
