FO: Wishing Stars

The last quilt I got quilted when I was at Mom’s was the large scrappy star quilt inspired by Pat Sloan’s Little Wishes pattern.

It was one of my Leader-Ender projects and I’m absolutely thrilled with it!

So much scrappy goodness! I love a good polkadot fabric and the fine white on black dots was perfect for the star points of this one.

I didn’t have enough of it left to do the binding, but this nice little star print was a good stand in. Sadly, this one is not going in the shop, as I intended.

I found a popped seam after I’d quilted it and I can’t repair it so that it’s not noticeable. So, it’s now on the futon, replacing an old, worn-out Walmart quilt that used to be there.

Burton, of course, thinks that just fabulous!

    I absolutely love it!!! One of my all time favorites. Popped seams are so annoying. I saw Angela Walter’s tutorial on how to fix them after the fact and have used it a few times.

    That is such a beautiful quilt! I love all the scrappy goodness and the way you did your sashing and those smaller stars. Just awesome. It’s a good background for Burton so I guess it was just meant to stay with you.


  3. Yes! Yes! Yes! You’re keeping this beautiful quilt for Burton and his brothers to lay on. Well, you can too of course, but they get first dibs. It’s a stunning quilt in all of it’s scrappy beauty. There is nothing better than a scrappy quilt and it looks as if it were made for your futon.
