Baby Star Quilt--Finished!

I finished the mini version of my star quilt! It's headed off to a new baby soon. I really love baby quilts that don't scream "baby". It's much more my style to give a mini version of a regular quilt.

Stats: 

  • Finished Size: About 40" square
  • Fabrics: Technicolor by Emily Herrick (prints), Solids are various Art Gallery and Kona solids to match, Background is Kona white.
  • Diamond Templates: 8 1/2" (See Tutorial 1 for details on cutting your own templates.)
  • Background Fabric Cuts: Measurement "A"= 19"; Measurement "B"= 13" (See Tutorial 3 so these numbers will make sense).



The back was a fun experiment with some scraps.


Rain prohibited me from getting my standard quilt on the blue chair picture. Hopefully, I can add that in before it is gifted.
