Another Star Quilt

Recently, Emily from Crazy Old Ladies Quilts sent me some strips of her new fabric Technicolor that she just debuted at Market. Emily started attending the SLMQG a few months ago, and it's been fun getting to know her. I really love this line. It's actually a lot like Emily--fun, bright, and cheerful. The line is pretty much full of great blenders. Each individual print is great, and they all work really nicely together. I love the simplicity of the designs. In general I work with a lot with tone-on-tone and tone-on-white fabrics. These work perfectly with my preferred style (and will fit nicely into my stash once they officially release next month).


I thought the blues, greens and oranges would be perfect for a non-baby-ish baby quilt I wanted to make for a friend. I didn't have a lot to work with since the strips I got were about 5" x 18". I decided to make a mini version of my Jumbo Star quilt and paired it with coordinating solids. I'm still in love with this star design. It's just fun to make. This little guy will finish at about 40" square.



Here's the beginning of the quilt back. This is something new I've never tried before. I'm really liking it and am using up all my scraps in the process.

  7. That is a great line! And cool back too, I love using up the fabric for the backing. I think piecing a backing from one long fabric is way more work then piecing a backing this way. LOL
