I was asked to make a quilt for a new baby girl and quickly settled on this floating saw-tooth star design using pink and low-volume fabrics from my stash. You can see the block specifics here on my Instagram account.
I used 16 different pink fabrics for the background, and 8 pink low-volume fabrics for the stars ( so I used each fabric for 2 stars). Once I had cut all my fabric squares, I took the time to lay the color combinations out on my design wall to try to achieve an even spread of color (and make sure the star fabrics didn't have duplicates next to each other).
I chose to quilt this one diagonally through the corners of each square of fabric - forming a lattice of quilting and delicious texture.
I chose a binding fabric that is a little darker and deeper than the other pink fabrics in the quilt, and I backed the quilt in a Dear Stella turquoise cat fabric.
This quilt has sixteen blocks that each finish at 12" square. The quilt itself is 48" square. I've always liked baby quilts that are a little bigger; that way there's more room for playing on the floor when I use them for play mats.
Thanks for stopping by!
