It measures about 28 x 28.
It's made from scraps of an Island Batik line called North Woods that I won in a giveaway awhile back, and I had waffled back and forth over what to do with them, finally deciding just to play with this star design.
After making the star, I divided up the rest of the strips into darks and lights and used the lights for a border and the darks for the binding.
I used some of the leftover bits on the back, too.
I enjoyed playing with the quilting on this project. The center is a square spiral, a bit wonky, but kind of fun! I used my spool of Aurifil Jade for the quilting.
After outlining the star points, I decided to try some gentle curves in the corners and borders.
I'm so pleased with those pretty stitches, courtesy of my new machine! :)
I decided to hang this in my sewing room for awhile - just because!
I'm definitely happy to have Batik Star finished, and with almost all of the fabric used up in the making of it, too.
Hope you're having a great weekend! I'll be sharing at Quilting is more fun than Housework for Oh Scrap!
Your Batic Star quilt is gorgeous! An exciting way you have used the fabrics. I also think the back was very good. Well done! :-)
I'm so enjoying your projects these days!!! i love the star, WOWOWOWOW! You had great likes this week too but I'm just getting around to catching up! Have a wonderful week!
And isn't it fun when we can use up a 'set' of fabrics! Something I need to learn to do, LOL
A very striking finish. Love the use of all those scraps!
you finished that one up pretty quickly - it turned out well and I like how it looks on your wall
Congratulations on your new machine, and your finished quilt! I love the curved quilting, and the thread color is perfect!
And you should have it on your wall to admire, a pretty quilt like that! What a satisfying finish!
Look at those pretty stitches! Looks like you are enjoying your new machine and your updated sewing room. Thanks for linking up with Oh Scrap!
It’s a fine rugged star, strong yet also gentle. It’s one of my favorite patterns and I made it in Kaffe Fassett fabrics, but not in strip blocks, which give it a whole different appearance. Congratulations!
Very pretty! Love the little curves you added to the corners.
It looks amazing! I'm so glad you were able to put all of these scraps to such good use!
It looks great hanging up in your sewing room!
Congrats on the finish! It looks perfect up there on your wall.
It's beautiful! You did a wonderful job on fabric placement, and your quilting looks amazing. Love it on your wall. :)
Very nice use of scraps ... I like! ... :-) Pat
