Mini Quilt Challenge - Oh My Stars!



I wanted to join Amy's Mini Quilt Challenge since mini quilts can just be anything they can turn into a quilt, pouch, mug rug, or my favorite a pillow. So yesterday I worked long and hard on my mini.

Oh My Stars Mini


I have been wanting to make the interlocking stars quilt for a long time now since I saw Faith's awesome one and then Amber made a pillow version that was scrappy and I was hooked!

I of course turned my mini into a pillow since pillows are my favorite things.

Obsessed with stars pillow


I already have my fabric for my quilt version of this pattern. I am finally going to cut into my beloved Park Slope prints and make a twin size version ASAP. I am that in love with this pattern.

There was a great scrappy quilt in this pattern in the Bloggers Quilt Festival too. I was thinking of doing 6 inch squares and using my Urban Chicks Dream On. How big are you making your squares for a twin size?
