Inner Star Quilt #2!
This was actually the first Inner Star Quilt that I pieced, but I decided to have it quilted by a local long-arm quilter, and while it was being quilted, I pieced and finished the green version. The palette for my blue quilt was inspired by this picture that I saw on Instagram, though I used Windham Fabrics Artisan Cotton fabric in Denim and I believe that the fabric in the inspiration photo was a linen. I went with the Artisan Cotton fabric because I liked how it had more texture and dimension than a traditional dyed quilting cotton. The Artisan Cottons are woven fabrics and actually look different colors depending on the directions of the warp and weft of the fabric. Can you see it in the picture below?
As you can see in the photo above, I went with a figure-eight quilting pattern. There are many versions of this pattern available, but I believe that this one is called "Modern Twist" and is from Urban Elementz. I had the quilter quilt the "twists" at 6".
I backed the quilt in a fabric from Ikea that has been sitting in my stash for 10 years. 10 years! It felt good to finally use it.
I bound the quilt in a red and white print from Art Gallery. I was going for a very subtle patriotic summery vibe for this quilt and this print is just what I was looking for.
