What happens when you start piecing stitch and flip triangles and squares into a 16-patch?
Well, a star is born! In Seattle it is not uncommon to see just a lone star or two in the sky.
The squares in this quilt are scrappy and a bunch are leftovers from the Blind Copilot Quilt in our book Quilting Modern (which is available again btw)!
I love that you can use up the smallest bits of fabric and that I have another sample for my Stitch and Flip Triangle Workshop in November. You can see a few other great examples of this block in the Quilting Modern Flickr Group.
Krista Wither’s did the quilting. We collaborated on the design. I wanted something that would help define the large triangles that formed the star since they were a little off-set.
The background quilting needed to be a bit denser to advance the star and we went with this shape. It worked out fabulously in my opinion!
After messing around as usual with the back, I went with one lone wonky star and showcased some favorite fabrics in the points.
This quilt will be on display as part on Krista’s exhibit at Island Quilter that opens on Friday night. Hope to see you there!
