Design Wall Monday 3/23/15

I had to work most of the day on Saturday, which was Worldwide Quilting Day. Fortunately, I got to spend the whole evening quilting, and I made the most of my time in the sewing room then.

This quilt was started in January when I was inspired by the Sweet 16 Quilt-Along at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. I made 10 blue and white 16-patches, but had no plan beyond that. Then I decided to turn them into stars with red points. I made four stars, then tried to decide how many more I would need and how to set them together.

At first I was planning to make twelve blocks and put them together in a 3 x 4 setting with sashing. That just seemed too boring, and I decided to play with some other ideas. I drew up several ideas on graph paper, and finally settled on this one.

On Saturday I cut all the background pieces that will fill the spaces between the blocks. I had started out with 2-1/2 yards of background, and ended up with a piece that measures about 3" x 15". I sure hope I cut everything correctly! I also started making the blue Friendship Stars, which were finished on Sunday. Now I need to figure out how to join the sections together. There will be lots of partial seams, but the final look should be worth the effort!

I am linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times, where you can see all sorts of amazing quilting inspiration!

  1. Great layout, looks like tons of partial seams but it's going to be well worth the effort.

  2. wow, what a great layout. I love how it breaks up your pointed stars.

  3. Great layout! Good luck with all those partial seams, but it'll be worth it.
