6" finished stars made entirely from scraps. So satisfying, but not incredibly fast to work up into a quilt! I did use the wonky star piecing approach so that I didn't have to cut or measure any of the triangle star points.
Look what I found for the backing. It's a cuddly "softie" print by Timeless Treasures, who actually has a whole softie collection of prints. They kindly obliged my request to send some this way. And then I petted it and promptly quilted it...
once again with the continuous eight.
Continuous eight, how I love thee. Let me count the ways...
- It's fast. This is the fastest way for me to quilt. Faster than straight lines. Faster than, well anything else I can do!
- It's secure. All those crossing loops add extra durability!
- It's gender neutral. It's not flowers!
- It's classic. The continuous eight looks like something that's been around. It reminds me of stippling, but seems more elegant?
- It works in rows. I appreciate the orderly nature of rows, so I never wonder where to go next!
So glad my friend wanted a "not boy" quilt for her baby boy. I enjoyed pulling all kinds of colors from my scraps, creating a milieu that's boy-friendly, but diverse.
I'm thinking her baby will just be glad for the minky!
Bound in Comma Periods. Ready to be loved, dragged and cuddled to pieces.
Enjoy, baby Jude!
