Night Stars

I'm back today sharing a second quilt that I finished a month or two ago. It's Night Stars designed by Emily Dennis from Quilty Love.



The color inspiration was this strawberry fabric from Ruby Star Society. I had some Kona Teal and Kona Lingerie that worked beautifully with the colors in the print. 


I pulled teal and pink prints from my stash to make the star blocks. You'll notice that one block uses Kona Raisin instead of the light pink Lingerie. That's because I was short on yardage and decided to work with what I had on hand.


I backed the quilt in the cute strawberry print and quilted it using straight lines.


I cut the leftover teal for the binding, but again ran short on yardage, so I inserted bits of the RSS strawberry print in the binding.


It's a nice big quilt and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out!

  3. I also love the design statement of the raisin in your quilt. Even if it was more of an "I need a solution" situation. It adds a lot of punch to the quilt. Enjoy your finish and stay well xo Melanie

  5. A gorgeous finish in a colorway I probably wouldn't have thought to try. I absolutely love the way the raisin color adds a lively accent to the quilt. Isn't it fun when we make do with what we have on hand and end up with results that really make a quilt sing. The addition of the print in the binding is terrific too.
