The quilt is 102"x 85". I made a rather large Twin size quilt since I wanted it to hang to the floor and not have to have a bed skirt. The quilt will go on Penelope's twin once we move her out of her crib.
Erin helped me to figure it all out on paper before I started.
Here is the breakdown:
6.5" blocks (they will be 6" finished)
47 Stars (47 prints for this quilt I doubled some of mine)
14 Fillers (fillers are just a square with 2 star points on them)
191 White squares
Cut out all your fabric first:
You need 47 prints for this quilt ( Park Slope is only 30 prints so I doubled 17 of the prints to get a total of 47 stars )
Cut out (5) 6.5" squares of each print. For a total of (235) 6.5" squares of your print fabric (there is 47 stars and each star is 5 squares)
Cut out (191) Kona White 6.5" squares
Then sew all the star points using this tutorial but don't sew the block together.
Trim all of the star points
Then lay the whole quilt out. This is what takes the longest as you need to piece it all together like a puzzle. Some stars do not have all 4 points on them. The points that are left over are your " Fillers" these are the ones you use to fill in the blank spots for the outside of the quilt. Just look at the quilt picture to see what I am talking about. They are points for the imaginary stars :)
After all of that was done I took a picture of it (just in case things got out of place) and started sewing it all together. I sewed it altogether in blocks and then sewed the blocks together in rows. Not all of your blocks are going to have the star in the center as shown in this picture. I just started sewing the blocks together starting in the top left corner of the quilt that was laid out on my floor and the first block just worked out to have the whole star.
If you have any questions just ask them in the comments. Hopefully this makes sense.
This quilt is just to large for me to quilt so I will be sending it out to the quilter I just need to find one first. I can't wait to get this one back and bound so that we can all enjoy it!
