I’ve wanted to make a wonky stars quilt for a while now, and the 4th of July seemed like the perfect occasion to give this a try.
I drew up a plan that involved larger interlocking stars, with a few smaller stars thrown in to give the larger stars some breathing room. I also added some of my favorite Cosmo Cricket ruler fabric into the quilt– I couldn’t resist the vintage-y feel those brought to the quilt top.
I loved the way the back of the quilt top looked hanging on the laundry line– all those little seams for my little stars (each square finished at 4.5 inches, so you can imagine how small those little pieces were)!
Alas, I had so many other project to wrap up this past week I didn’t get the quilt done done, but I did manage to finish up the quilt top! I’m sure I’ll quilt it soon, and we’ll have our summer holiday quilt ready for next year!
