My Star Quilt

Wow. I finished this quilt in record time. It came together so fast and it turned out exactly as I wanted it to. The perfect quilt to welcome me back.

My Star Quilt


I made this quilt 36" x 36" because all of my quilts are crib size or larger and I never take then anywhere with me to use, we only use them in the house. So I made this one to be used in the stroller and the carseat and to take it everywhere we go.

I love the pieced binding. I have not done that since my very first quilt that I made for my oldest daughter.

The back is the pink flower print from the Flea Market Fancy line.

I can't wait to start using this quilt!
