Batik Stars!

I'm a sucker for a sale, what can I say?

When I saw this fat quarter pack on sale, I had to get it. The colors are so bright and the patterns are a funky tie-dye and batik. These fabrics would be a perfect fit for this star quilt. You can find the pattern/instructions here.

Maybe I'll make the background black or a dark grey so the colors pop.

I was thinking about a dear friend lately -- when she had her daughter, I made her a baby blanket with stars, crescent moons, and hearts. It wasn't my best quilting, but apparently her daughter liked it so much that she has "loved it to death!" This would be a good replacement, and I'll probably machine quilt this one so it's extra durable.

But first I have to finish my other two. It's nice to have future quilt plans, though!

  1. These stars are wonderfully wonky. I can't believe I have never seen this pattern before. Your batiks will make it so happy and energetic.
