Vintage Star Quilt

I am finding myself with less and less time as my kids are getting older, so I've been searching for smaller projects that don't require the same time commitment as large quilts. I'm also searching for ways to use my stash.  I've had the backing flannel for this little quilt in my stash for a few years. I pulled it out to make a simple baby quilt. I love this star pattern from a tutorial by Jeni over at In Color Order. It's perfect for random fat quarters. I made this into a baby quilt and started with 10 1/2" squares for the HSTs. The finished quilt is about 37" square.


I quilted it with a flower and leaf design.


The colors for the front were pulled from the flannel backing. I really love this print. Plus it's so nice and soft.

I'll be listing this one in my Etsy shop.

  3. How wide did you cut your binding? I like the size relationship.
